College/University

Postby Lime Yay » Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:09 pm

Hello there! Many of you are starting to think about (or should be starting to think about :P) going to University, and I (along with others on this site) have already gone to university... so I think this is the perfect time and place to talk about it. I'm especially interested in making this thread a kind of Q/A so that you young'uns can make some really smart choices.

I (like probably many of you) thought I was pretty set for college. I got really great grades, a great ACT score, and lots of extra-curriculars to beef up the ol' college application. I got into a good university. But I've made some mistakes, too, and when I come to think about why I made those mistakes, a lot of it comes down to not knowing enough in high school.

Particularly... finances! But that's just me. If you guys are interested in the social/emotional/academic/etc. aspects of college, feel free to ask about that as well!

So, little ones, get to asking, and "oldies" get to answering.


~Lime Yay

Note: in the US (where I am from), "college" is used as a general term for university. It can be more complicated beyond that (for example, I was in the college of Engineering at university), but we don't need to complicate things :P

Thanks to Diana for the sweetest (erm... sourest?) signature ever!

I've already started the first part of the application process for three colleges: the essays. I want to have them written up before I start filling out the application form. I'm really excited to go because I'm excited to learn what I need to do well at a good job. My parents have already signed me up for community college classes (this is my senior year in high school) so I'll have class time experience before I go off to college.

So, quick question. I'm a homeschooler, and I'm familiar with how social life is at a public school (my friends complain about it very often). How different is college social life from public school social life?

Thanks, Lime Yay! :) I have the first drafts of the essays printed up for my mom and dad to look at, so I'll be revising and proofreading them soon.

My parents impressed upon me (especially my dad) about choosing a major that would allow me to get a good job once I graduated, which is why I'm choosing Communications. They didn't want me choosing something like Theater and then being jobless for the first year or more after I graduate.

I'm taking College Writing and College Algebra at the local community college so I hopefully won't have to take them when I get into college. They also count for Math and English/Literature classes for this high school year which will be nice. :)

Again, thanks for the information. :)

This is a great thread; I'm willing to answer questions.

But I feel like Lime Yay already gave Merv great answers.

I'll tackle any other questions, if I can(Currently going to a small, private University. Top 20. Social aspect of it might be slightly different than most. Cost is definitely different.)
Truth is: Texas sucks.

How is Gunny feeling on First Earth?
