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.

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.

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.

Is it normal or common for kids graduating from high school to not go straight to college/university?


Yes, it definitely common in this day and age. A lot of kids graduating from high school will take a gap year and start university/college in the following year or some time off to do some travelling.

Is it possible to be accpted into harvard university if you went to community college first?


Well from what I have read on this subject, it is possible to transfer, but it rarely happens. A community college is a great place to start the journey of education. But it rarely sets an appropriate platform to build of off. As you know, Harvard is one of the most presages universities in the world. It's highly competitive and one must be in the top 10 to even be considered, A community college usually does not prepare a person to this extent. With this preparation you may not have a strong enough foundation to build on to succeed at Harvard. My advise is to get some experience at a less competitive university first. Build up you GPA, practice on advancement , and then start the transferring process. I'm not saying it cant be done, just encouraging you to think it through and do it the smart way, as to reduce any struggling.

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.

Is it okay to post a pic of your college accepteanc eletter on social media?


You don't really need to do that cause it's somehow immature, you should be proud to post your distinction result after graduation not acceptance letter.

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.

Why Do Liberal Arts Majors Think That They are Learning "Useful job skills" In their major?


I don't think it entirely fair to say "any degree provides these" and then list quantum physics (which is most likely above bachelor degree) and computer science as examples. Obviously if they can solve "high level problems" they can think critically. But if we take a physics degree for example sure it might seem more prestigious but most people will not find jobs in physics with out at least a masters and that's if your lucky. In both cases the degree does not provide the exact skills used in a job but that does not mean the degree is useless.

I don't do that great in school but I'm not failing or anything. My grades range from 70's to 90's will I get into college and be okay?


Dependes on the college and getting into college doesn't mean you'll be okay( I'm assuming ok means get a job)
if you're worried about getting into A college you will be fine.
