Anyone ever take a Public Speaking class?


I'm taking Business Communications now.

It's the most interesting and helpful class I've taken in college.


PS - Everybody else seems to enjoy it too.

^^Depends on what kinda class you take, at my school they had group speaking classes and individual speaking classes. I took a group speech class and it got super annoying because if one group memeber was bad at public speaking my professor would grade all of us down.

Oh I think I'm going to switch because I hate groups.


I also have intro to Sociology and Intro to Criminal justice anyone know what the material is like?



Where do you go to school? That criminal justice one will probably be about the court system and trials, policing methods, and theories of criminality. The Sociology one will be really easy I bet

There's really no way to figure out what college's actually pay attention to when looking at your application. You could speculate forever but in the end admissions is a total crapshoot. Only thing you can really do is do well in school and complete all parts of the application to make you as appealing as possible to the school. If you need to write an essay write the best essay you can. If you think you need extracurriculars go join some clubs. But in the end there's no real way of knowing exactly how colleges make their decisions.


pretty simple to even increase your chances on top of that...in a college town like Ann Arbor, plenty of people are connected to UofM. My friend's pops eats lunch with an admissions officer. just like that word spreads like wildfire about what they look for...
Obviously not every case is cut and dry, but due to reputation and word of mouth everything is almost out there

essays are most important in most selective schools (if you have the standard high GPA and shit like that, because thats the norm)

On another noote, Finished my apps for NYU, Wisc-Madison...waiting to hear back from Mich.

Anyone Know how FASFA works? I've already paid my tution and fees but it says I have money left over? Does the school get the money or does It go towards books?

I heard you get some of the excess money back. Anyone know if this is true?


i never filed for FASFA, but my friends who did each received money back. so someone might know better than me, but i'd say yes

Hey man I've been to both DA and SJSU. If you really can't get into the UC's or private schools, I suggest you try to get in SDSU or Cal Poly SLO before either SFSU or SJSU. SDSU is tiers above the rest in business. And any school that starts with a CSU is no good.

If your options are limited to SFSU/SJSU, I'd pick the one where you will have the most fun. They are very similar academically but SJSU is more of a commuter school I think (I haven't been to SFSU much). Just my 2 cents.


Thanks for the advice man. I'm currently weighing in all options, including USC mentioned by the other guy lol.

My Intro to Sociology was reading an article a week and interpreting it.
Not hard work, but I got a B- in the class.

You should be able to get back all the money from scholarships/FAFSA if there is any leftover after tuition and fees. Do direct deposit to get it faster.

the school itself is on an actual farm. i remember it smelling terrible and there wasn't much life around the school. the area is pretty crappy if you're looking for a great college experience.

of course they aren't "as good" as UCs but I think you should go to a school that's best for you, especially with the prospective job market. I want to work in entertainment management and I really wanted to go to Berkeley and major in business but I realized that would be a huge waste of money since I don't even need a degree to do what I want to do. I chose to go to SFSU instead just to be in the bay and to get a degree as a back up plan. Not everyone needs to go to the most prestigious school especially if they can't pay for it. I'd hate to go to a 30k a year school and not be able to get a job afterward. However, if you want to be a lawyer, doctor, and start in a high position you should aim high with schools.

Yo, is it possible to get into a UC (not berkeley or LA but like Irvine or something) if I end up getting like a 3.3-3.5 gpa average (cumulative) by the time my college apps are due next year? I'm a junior in hs now and the only shit that messed me up was pre calculus class this year cuz i ended up getting a D and I was only a few points away from passing that class with a C-. I know i wanna go to a college in california and shit but i was aiming for a UC sooo what are my chances? o and does ethnicity matter to the colleges hella much? lol

You'll get into Riverside, Merced, Santa Cruz. Davis, SB and Irvine is pushing it though. Depends on test scores, extracurricular, and essay. You should take precalc again and see if the grade can be replaced or averaged. I had a 3.7 GPA with really good test scores (90 percentile) and I got denied from SB, LA, and Berkley. Granted my year, 2009, was the most competitive college applications ever

500 million dollar funding cut for UC isnt helping applicants. Make sure you have significant and relevant extra curriculars, not just some club memberships at school

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

A lot of the UCs have pretty big asian populations compared to other colleges.

depends on the csu. Some notify you earlier than others. They usually send you a letter or notify via email. I know people that got acceptance letters already and even some got theirs awhile ago.
