  • I'm don't know what I want to major in and yet I'm going to be a junior. Feeling scared?

    In Fall 2020, I'm going to a junior in college as a transfer from community college with an associate degree in general studies. When I applied to the university, I picked accounting for my major. Now I'm unsure if I want to continue accounting because the reason why I picked it is because I've always loved math while growing up. Now I have a slight interest in criminology because the though of solving crime fascinate me. Now I'm afraid that what if I don't like my accounting major and will have to stick to it forever and that's what terrify me the most. Going after for something I thought I was going to like. Now I can't decided between accounting or criminology. I feel like time is running out to decide and I don't feel confident at all with my decision. Help!

  • Will I get unemployment ?

    So I am a college student who lives in PA. Normally I’d be living in college but since all the schools are online, I am in Florida with my family. I work part time at Burger King when I am down here Over summer and breaks when I’m off. However now because of the corona virus, they don’t want anyone coming back. This is completely understandable but I was wondering if there was any way I could get unemployment, even just a small amount. If I was here, I would be working, but I can’t. Thanks.

  • Would drop out of college if your professor told you to?

    i asked this before. I got to a small community college. All my professors keep telling me drop out of my community college program,( Accounting). They think I cant do math with out a calculator. I was supposed to subtract something in front of the class, i blanked out. but i know how to subtract and multiply without a calculator. Also I wrote February 30 instead of 28 on my quiz. They keeping degrading me in front of my class, and everyone notices. My professor told me to drop out of the program in front of the entire class, and it spread to most people in the program. During my exam my teacher tried break my calculator, by trying to pull it a part. Also my professor stood so her back side faced me, she also threw the sign in sheet at me. I feel so humiliated.

  • Is 27 to old to get my law degree? ?

    Best answer: not at all. By now, you have many times the real world experience of most law students -- that'll be your strength. Hint: collect examples of contracts from your place of work and get your friends to do the same for you. Lots of good study material in them

  • Can I still submit homework that was due 3 days ago? Here is the syllabus from my professor: ?

    Homework assignments are immediately posted on Blackboard after class. If class is canceled due to a personal reason by the instructor or for inclement weather like snow, hurricane, or tornado, it is posted at 8 AM on the day of class. Homeworks is 20% of your grade so it’s important you try to submit each and every homework assignment as possible to avoid incurring a loss of points. Even if you don’t understand the material, a grade is far better than a zero. Homework is due by 8:00 A.M, but I have a three-day grace period where you can still submit homework late, but incur a penalty: If you submit Homework after 8 AM on the due date, you will incur a 5% point reduction. If you submit Homework 1 day after the due date, you will incur a 10% point reduction. If you submit Homework 2 days after the due date, you will incur a 15% point reduction.  Homeworks uncompleted after 3 days passed the due date will no longer be able to be submitted and a grade of zero will be recorded. Special exemptions can be made to students who had a legitimate reason to not hand in homework, even post the grace period. Students who were injured/ill/hospitalized or had a death in the family, for example, should speak to me and hand in PROOF that they were unable to submit homework due to a personal reason. If I grant the exemption, I’ll give the student up to 3 days to submit the homework recorded as a zero for a grade change.

  • Why do people choose careers that can't financially support themselves on?

    They claim that they do their jobs because they "love it" even though they can't support themselves and still live with their parents at 30 years old and if they continue staying working in this career, they will be living at home with their parents until their parents pass away. My cousin has a masters degree in japanese art and works at the library making $13 an hour at 33 years old and she will never move out of her family's home if she keeps this job. My other cousin has bachelor's degree in anthropology and is a day care teacher and makes similar amount of money at 29 years old. Do these women just plan on marrying a guy who makes a lot of money? Because I don't see how they will ever be able to have children or move out of their parents house making $13 an hour with no health care benefits
