  • Can anything bad come from having your wages garnished?

    I have student loans that ive been deferring until I get a promotion & could do a payment plan & just recently had wages garnished for it.

I realize that sounds like a stupid question but I just wanted to make sure

  • My parents are making my college search difficult?

    I’m a senior in high school trying to figure out where to go to college. My dad only wants me to go to a Christian college, which would be fine as I am a Christian, except I didn’t take my SAT’s and most near me require them. My mom wants me to take them to keep the peace in the house so that my dad won’t flip out because he can be crazy and will block me out. I have a few colleges I want to check out but I can’t because it will start problems with my family. I’m so upset because I have no one to talk to about this. I try to talk to my mom but she just cares about my dad’s reaction. I don’t have a guidance counselor so I am doing this by myself. What should I do?

  • Why have boys been doing worse and worse in education over the past few decades?

    Best answer: in 1974, the feminist group the AAUW won the Women's Educational Equity Act (WEEA) which created the WEEA Center, providing funding and the authority to influence K-12 education to to focus on girls to the detriment of boys. In short, their efforts have been a success with fewer boys proportionally graduating and going onto college.

    It amazes me some people seem so puzzled that boys went from doing great to doing worse, when we passed legislation designed to have this effect.

    My answer won't show up if I post links, but if you google "Hoff Sommers NY Times war on boys", you find an article she published in the NY Times which chronicles the process by which feminists were able to win such legislation.

  • What's the point of attending college?

    The only subject I'm really interested in is mathematics. I'm good at  it, but I don't like being around people. I looked into entry-level careers  such as math-tutoring. Even those positions require a 4-year  bachelor's degree and only pay a few dollars above minimum-wage.  I don't get it. What I'm asking is: what is the value of  attending college if all it does is stress people out  and the pay-off is so little in return? Why are companies so demanding? Why do people think college makes  you a better person? I think it turns you into a workaholic.  Your thoughts? Discuss.

  • How can I further my education without my former school knowing?

    Okay, this is the problem. I dated a girl a few years ago who worked for a community college and is in a position to see peoples records and grades. Anyway, I graduated from this college and then we broke up (she was psycho) and now I want to further my education, but she will have access to see any college I've transferred to and I don't want her to know where I'm going and my personal business. How can I avoid this?

  • How do I adjust to college life?

    Hello!!! I’m a freshman at a college I live about an hour away from, and I’m having a little bit of trouble adjusting to college life. It’s only the first week, but i’m having some trouble. I’m living on campus, and I have a lot of things I need to consider. Keeping on top of my school work, studying, sleep (really important to me because of health problems, but having a lot of trouble doing because of my roommate), exercise (really important to me because of health problems), going home on the weekends (I live super close), and my social life. I’m not a big partier. Are there any tips or tricks or any advice you could think of? I’m just having a really tough time right now. Thanks!
