I'm looking at Studying Psychology in NJ USA. Where do I start?1Norbert2016-07-13 23:32:49
It's very difficult to separate the wheat from the shaft. There are a lot of colleges offering various courses in Psychology, some online, some campus and some blended. I have two questions in mind: 1. How do I tell that the degree I receive from this college will be of some value? 2. Is it any good to do a course that offers blended learning oprions? (online studying for most times combined with classroom learning at regular intervals)[View Answers]
What's was your gpa, or what is your gpa?...What's a good gpa, in what range?0Mady2012-11-06 06:56:54
what was your gpa in high school? college? graduate school? what do you think is a good gpa? ~ in high school i was like a 3.75+ i graduated with honors. college- since i switched my major from hard biology to sociology and psychology it is a 3.2 something, probably a 3.3 by the time i graduate. graduate school i am hoping a 3.2 or higher. i think a good gpa is a 3.0 or higher. since its on a 4.0 scale. its rare to get 3.5-3.9 gpa's in college or yet alone graduate school because of the horrible teachers and curriculm. high school was so much easier. :O) what do you think?[View Answers]
I'm a Psychology major...need help?!?0canary2012-11-06 04:22:31
I've got my A.A in Psychology already and I'm about 30 units away from getting my B.A in Psychology. I wanted to be a school counselor preferably in elementary. I hear now that I would need my Master's in order to do that (which I will do in the future but I want to start working once I get my B.A)...now I'm thinking of being a preschool/ first grade teacher (which was my plan B). I'm kinda confused now...because I'm not sure if I can teach with a B.A degree in Psychology or not...I love psychology so I really do not want to change my major. What should I do? Any suggestions? I'm from California so I'm aware that the requirements are different in every state...[View Answers]
Will my acceptance get pulled?0anon.s2012-11-06 03:16:22
I am a senior in high school this year and I have sent all my applications out. I got accepted by my first choice almost immediately and it is a good school. It isn't ivy league but reasonably selective (need about a 3.2 gpa and 1600 SATs) I work after school so I can't take a last period because work starts at 1. My schedule is 1. A community service helping out some teachers, 2. P.E. (an elective that I need to graduate, it isn't my 8th gym class in high school like some kids take) and 3rd period is my honors Anatomy and Physiology class. The fourth is a free period like I said so that I can go work after school. My schedule last semester was tough, (Psychology, English, and honors history). Is there any chance that the college that I want to go to will pull my acceptance because I "slacked off"? I have been an honor roll student all my life and didn't intend for my schedule to be this easy. What are the chances they pull it? Or am I just worrying about nothing?[View Answers]

Where is a comprehensive list of college degrees/courses?0Dark Cloud 2012-11-05 20:48:33
A little while ago I found a website that listed everything you can get a degree in, which was extremely helpful. It's not the degree itself (bachelor, master, etc.) but the subjects you can get them in, like biochemistry and psychology. Could someone help me find that again, or at least a site that roughly covers what is available? I know it differs from college to college.[View Answers]
Will I run into any problems with my plans?0Chandresh2012-11-05 19:55:03
I'm a sophomore in high school, so I'm not sticking with these plans, but I'm strongly considering them. I just want to hear opinions and suggestions from anyone. I'm considering the following: 1. Get a job to make some cash by next year. One that doesn't require working on the Sabbath. 2. Graduate and enroll in Oakwood College's fabulous music program. Possibly study a little psychology while I'm there. 3. Become a music teacher. I like cooking, so I may make a little money off that at home. 4. While I'm teaching music, I may enroll at a local community college (wherever I reside) and major in engineering (most likely civil "CE"). I want to major in engineering (not decided which field), and minor in music and culinary arts. Do you see any problems with this? I would REALLY appreciate earnest answers given with effort. Any opinions would be great! heh Thank you so much![View Answers]
What are my chances of getting accepted to this Medical School Program?0lam2012-11-05 19:20:27
I'm planning on applying to this really competitive medical school program at my college. It's so you can get accepted to med school your junior year and you don't have to take the MCAT. They strongly recommend a 29 ACT and a 3.8 GPA. My stats: I have 4.0 GPA now and am doing all I can to maintain it. I am doing research this summer with the same medical school I plan on applying to. I am a part of a volunteer organization for just freshman. I plan on starting a volunteering club at my school...it's a part of a national organization and am working on getting it started now. I'm double majoring in Psychology and Biology. I am in the Honors Program BUT: I have one W on my transcript already (but am making sure it's the only one) The reason I withdrew was because I had 20 credit hours and I couldn't handle this really intense Honors Biology Lab but I'm taking a regular biology lab in the summer. AND...I only got a 28 on my ACT :( What are my chances...I'm only a freshman now, I have until my junior year to apply[View Answers]

What should I major in to finish my degree?0Sheng2012-11-05 15:30:31
In 1994, I left college, but was still allowed to go through graduation ceremonies, some hours short of completion. Now that I see it, I have basically 30 hours or a full year of undergrad left. I really wrangled my way into the line for grad. Naturally I never got a diploma for my empty folder. But, my whole family thought I had graduated. I have worked as a freelance writer, holding myself out as having a degree in English. I got 2 books published 4 and 8 years ago, I have published articles, blogs and business and grant proposals. I have done mission trips and ministry work with my writing, and am up for a major journalism fellowship (I did not pretend to have a degree on that application). Lately, I have felt very guilty about pretending to have a degree when I don't. Due to serious illness in our family, the construction and publishing markets (my husband's and my work) and a variety of other factors I'm not going to detail here, our family is on welfare right now. As a bit of background, I have not been offered a full time job in five years in spite of my best efforts. I get part time jobs easily and freelance writing jobs easily -- they just don't pay enough for us to pay our bills. My husband (who remodels houses but doesn't charge near enough to support us) and I have to cooperate with the job placement plan in order to keep getting welfare. It's not that the few hundred dollars is such a big deal, but under the program, and since I don't have outstanding student loans, I can go back to school and finish my degree with distance learning through a university about 40 miles from here. I can take online classes or some classes at a center in my town. It will actually take about 2 years because I have to earn 45 hours at this new school to graduate from it. This program offers adult learners courses at the upper undergrad levels and counts whatever coursework you've done to meet the core education requirements. You have to have completed 60 hours to get in and I've completed 98. Here are possible majors available to me: 1. English. Pro: it was already my major and I have a lot of work done in it. Con: I don't see how it will get me farther than I am now. I'm already a published author and journalist and not making enough money at it. I can already get hired for writing jobs based on my talent -- not to brag, it's just a fact. 2. Psychology -- Pro: I like people and helping others. Con: I have absolutely no hours in psychology right now and would have to start with Psych 101. Like all of these, I have the educational core done, but would have to take a bunch of psych and other social science courses. 3. Business administration. I do have nonprofit experience but my lack of degree has kept me from ever getting a job with it. I have no interest in business courses, I'm bad at math, possibly too chaotic for accounting, but I would make more money I think. 4. Teaching certification -- I would go for secondary English. Pro: very easy for me to finish up and possibly steady work that I'd enjoy. Con: Our local school district cut a bunch of teachers this year and I don't want to uproot the kids. I quit the teaching unit when I was at uni before because I didn't think I would be the best teacher. 5. organizational management -- like bus admin but less accounting and other drudgery. Might help me grow my writing business or get a job with a cool organization. What's your advice? Hope it wasn't too long. I tried to break it up into a lot of paragraphs. Thanks![View Answers]
I can't decide what to be when i grow up?0Thelma2012-11-05 12:09:20
Out of these, which sounds best and most practical to you? can you answer the questions I have about these jobs? I like the idea of being a psychologist, but I don't want to have to go all the way to get my doctoral! I can't afford that. If I were to get my BA and MA in psychology could I be like a therapist or counsler? and then there's social work, which I love the idea of but I really want to make more than 30,000 a year. Like is it really worth it? Then there's this idea I have that I could get my english education degree, work as an english teacher, and then go get a masters in psychology or counsling or something and be a guidance counsler. i love english and being a guidance counsler would be a good job, i think. would the whole education degree and then masters in psychology work to be come that? and if I later got my doctoral in psychology, could I be a clinical psychologist?[View Answers]

Sample Cover Letters Elicia Delombard 286 North 75th St. – Apt 5L New York, NY 10021 212-555-9988 March 21, 1998 Mr. Ralph Cantor Executive Vice President Republican Young, Inc. 321 Marzio Rd. Mohaonk, NY 12561 Dear Mr. Cantor: I would like to be considered for the Legal Assistant position offered at White, Case &Bothalemule. I learned of this opportunity through the New York Recruiting Consortium at Trinity College. My high level of concentration and excellent organizational skills have helped me achieve a strong academic record at Trinity College which reflects my diligence and commitment to success. Rigorous liberal arts courses and a concentration in psychology have provided me with a first rate writing ability as well as sharp analytical, problem-solving and research skills. In my International Politics and Clinical Psychology courses, I have written papers involving in-depth research and analysis in order to prove a specific thesis. I have also developed research skills in a different capacity by compiling and analyzing data in a Research Design and Analysis class. In addition, my studying in England and France as well as taking French and Spanish classes, has greatly expanded my knowledge of different cultures and languages. My language proficiency will be an asset to a law firm with global interests. Through challenging leadership positions, I have developed a strong sense of responsibility, effective interpersonal skills and the ability to contribute to teamwork, even in high-pressure environments. As a Resident Assistant, I successfully resolved conflicts among residents, planned social and educational programs while serving as a positive role model for my peers. With my background in liberal arts, business and leadership, I am confident that I can make a profound contribution to White, Case and Bothalemule. Enclosed is my resume for your review. I am enthusiastic about the position and look forward to meeting with you at the Consortium in January. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Drop AP Psychology for an advanced art class?0Hermione G.2012-11-05 07:53:25
I started to think about it more and more, and after my first day of school today I realized I'm not really into Psychology, and I've always had a passion for wanting to become a great artist or architect. I had art Freshmen year (Junior currently), so I was thinking of asking my old art teacher if I could move into her advanced art class. But... do you think I waited too long? Do you think I should drop it because it would help me for college, since I wanted to major in art? I'm having bad second thoughts about Psych, and if I wanted to swap from Psych to Art I would have to do it tomorrow or during this week. What should I do?[View Answers]
