i'm thinking about changing my major the sociology. i just though it's easier so i can get out of school as soon as possible with a BA in socio than anything else.
what kind of job can i get with a BA in socio though?

Dude wouldn't careers for sociology be like working for social services and welfare and shit? Don't get a BA in that, earn a major in what you really want so you can earn some money after school.

i just wanna do something to help people out. not boring stuffs like social services or shit like that.

i prefer working at a homeless shelter or a youth academy program or something like that. but what kind of degree should i get before i get out..

already halfway done with classes to be a teacher, but now that i think about it, i don't want to be a teacher anymore.

Well if you want to help people that may be a good route, but if you want to do something in the future to earn a better living you might want to consider a different degree. Is there something broader that you could help people with and be consdiered for other things if you ever want? Like public relations?

Money/ High Salary isn't the only thing that makes life worth living. If the guy wants to live a give his life some meaning by working a job that may not pay much but helps a lot of people than that's what he should do.

I realize that. All I'm saying is that a degree in a broader field can help him do the same thing + allow him the freedom to do something that can make him more money one day, if he so desires.

It all won't really matter in the end. 5 or 10 years down the line potential employers will look that you have any sort of degree, plus the experience you've gotten since. What your degree is on won't end up mattering much most likely.

Yea he's right you gotta meet some sort of criteria like the EFC has to be lower than some number and other factors that also play a role but i was in about the same situation as the dude asking and i pulled a pell grant.cool

Yo so I filled out my FAFSA form and got a .pdf from them saying my EFC is 0000 and that I'm eligible for the Federal Pell Grant. What do I do from here? Do I just wait for the schools I put down on my form to send me info and what to do next or do I gotta call?

^ you filed for the 2011-2012 year i assume. you can visit your schools financial aid office and ask what more you need to do. usually you fill out the fafsa then go there and get more forms to fill out. usually it's so that you can receive the pell grant and for direct deposit. very easy. they'll probably go over with you everything you need to be done. but MAKE SURE you go to their financial aid office. i filled out fafsa and didn't do that and missed out on aid for a year =/

they also might say you don't need to do much until fall semester starts since that is the start of the 2011-2012 year so for now, just ask, see what they say, chill, then come back during the first week of school with paperwork. just don't forget to go!

I completed one year at the University of Washington, Seattle.

I had really bad academics cause I was going through some shit. I got dropped due to low academics.
I'm in the process of trying to get back into school now. I've been out for two quarters getting my shit together.

Wish me luck

I took my last final monday. I've only gotten one grade back so far, it was a 3.9 razz

Realized today though there aren't any spring credits I can take to help with my degree progress so it looks like I'm taking a few months off until I start the business program sad

Hey thanks! But in my circumstance, I'm moving from where I am now to a different city in June, so I can still go to their office right or will it be too late? Or is there anyway I can do this over the phone?

EDIT: Forgot to mention the community college I plan on going to is in another city.
