Question about Higher Education (University)

Is college actually worth the time and money?

College is still a goal I was thinking about pursuing. I enjoy my job as a Cafeteria Worker at a Head Start school I'm currently employed at. I love the people I work with. During the summer months, I work as a janitor. Is college really worth the time and money or is work more important? I'm a 25 year-old high school graduate.

It depends on what job you want in life. Some jobs require a college degree, and usually (not all the time) they are better pay in the long run. But the long run is around 11 years to make more money than you would have been for working a non degree job for those 15 years and not paying for college. Both ways are not wrong. There are plenty of people who live full and happy lives without going to college, and plenty who do the same with a college degree. If you want to keep working you could also apply as a part time student and just take a couple of classes a semester. The main idea is to do something you are passionate about and that's how you can be successful.

I'm agree with the rest that it depends on what you expect from your study and whether you really like it and consider it important. Why you chose your speciality? Is it necessary to get there, where you wanna be? If you're currently working at the job you like, and study is not the thing of the first importance, you can take a break it and take your time. But in general I think you need to have a degree for moving forward and grow up professionally.

You can be a happy, contributing member of society in any job, but if you want to have the best chance of longterm employment in a world of increasing and rapid technology and mechanization, get as much higher education as possible with input from job counseling and educational counseling. Starting with community College is cost effective and does not stop you from going on.

The term worth depends on which thing you give Important. As it is not only your case most of the student have the same Idea. In my opinion, you must set a goal for your life like what you want to also ensure its possibility in real life. Then trust me you will understand what and when things will important to you. One of my friends is aiming to be the best Project Manager so after his graduation now he is taking PMP course from Excelr Solutions. As he already set his goal so he has no trouble n deciding what should he do or not after graduation.

I think it`s only your choice. We live in the times when your diploma not as necessary as your personal characteristics. If your goal is entering the college and get the diploma, just do it. And you shouldn`t worry about the time. I mean you can combine your studying and job using some extra help from custom writing services like https://samedaypapers.com/college-paper-writing. They will totally help you with any your writing assignment. But if you want to start your career without it, I think that won`t be a real big problem. Such famous people as Johnny Depp and Mark Zuckerberg didn`t even finish school or college and they get succeed in their spheres.

What AP classes should i take for the medical field?


AP classes are very specific to your college of choice. Unfortunately most AP courses do not transfer well. Your best bet is to contact your college of choice and see which courses they advise, and what will transfer. The last think you need is to take a course that will not help you.

Has my son crippled himself by only getting an associate's degree?


He needs to grow up and face facts. Don't finance him, and let him learn. If he wants to be a graphic artists. He needs to follow his dreams, but has to have a formal training or be super talented. As an employer, I look at education as an indicator of drive and perseverance. Not education only. He'd better have an outstanding resume to get a job, or be self employed. My 2 cents worth.

Should I major in what I'm good at?


I don't know what it's like in a lot of colleges, but I wouldn't be surprised if you can apply to a college into some sort of "exploratory studies". In my college the "exploratory studies" program lasts around a year or two and it's geared to people who don't know what major they want and help them decide. Now I say a year or two because that's generally how long it takes people to decide. Also, not to stress you out, but understand that the major you are getting is what you plan on doing for at least 30-40 years, so if you absolutely hate sciences and math I would steer away from that. If you are good at foreign languages, there are hundreds of good paying jobs out there for translators, and international relations. Engineering and Computer Science may pay better (I don't know average salary pay for International Relations), but this is where you think to yourself how much your general happiness is worth. If Computer Science pays $100k a year and International Relations pays $90k but you'll be happier and the work will come naturally easier to you, I would suggest doing that job instead.

Journalism or photography, which is better to go for in college with only and "associates degree" goal. And its a good job for the future?


Do both as they will complement each other. AA degrees are not really as good as a ba, but it depends on your abilities.

Does college go by as fast as high school?


it all depends on the quality of time you are having in the college. If you have your gang with which you enjoy every minute of your college life.
But, you should not ignore your study in doing all the fun.
Your academic performance matters the most. Your college days would seem lengthy as well as boring when you take writing assignments as a burden.
But, clicking the below provided link will sort all your problems.

Dependes on the college and getting into college doesn't mean you'll be okay( I'm assuming ok means get a job)

My son needs help?


Have him go to a community college first. Less expense, stay at home, and cuts down on the partying. It also gives him time to mature. I skated through high school because I was bored. Went a year in CC and stopped. Went Bach to college when I was 21
.now I am a physician. Never too late, but we have to have a goal first. Here to help if you need it
