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.

Ashamed for what?
thst you have a ba in history? It may not provid the most job security but if that was your passion then keep moving on. See where it takes you.

that your a security guard? Why because it doesn't pay a lot ? So, no reason to be ashamed. Cause it isn't related to you're ba? Why would any one care?

I think you answered you're own question in that last sentence.

It depends how you practice. Being that there are a lot of types of engineers i can't be super specific. I think math is taught incorrectly in most places. (To get a basic idea read the essay a mathaticiams lament, it's flawed but s good start). Reddit can also be a good source. r/math and r/learnmath

math is truth and we arrive at these truths through a serious of logical steps. Therefore I belive undersrand And become proficient in math. However the most of the joy comes from struggling with a problem. If you do not enjoy the struggle of solving problems engineering might not be for you. I hope I made sense??. Good luck.

A career is never garunteed but that does not mean it is a waste of time. If nothing else seems to be working just try it out. You don't have to have your life planed out like: these classe then this degree then this job then this...

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 think you know the answer...

Higher Education... | Answered on Mar 10, 2017

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.

What is coursework?

To offer you a better idea of how coursework varies from one subject to some other, below are a few examples:
  • English - English coursework usually takes the proper execution of an extended essay with a title of your choice. You're usually given a choice of themes and/or texts to explore, and you can select a format like a comparison between a collection text and another one.
  • Geography - Geography coursework usually is targeted on the gathering, reporting and interpretation of data made to answer a particular geographical question. You could investigate usage of a shopping centre, as an example, or look at erosion on a particular beach.
  • Sciences - Coursework for science subjects often takes the proper execution of a scientific project or experiment that you conduct and report on yourself.

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.
