A lot of people just want a career job that they can depend on. Accounting is always solid, finance/econ can get you a good job, management can usually lead to a good job. It's a fairly safe major with some fairly decent job prospects.

I did entrepreneurship because I knew working as a teenager that I didn't want to work for someone else the rest of my life. My entrepreneurship classes were really fun and really interesting. The best part of going to school was taking those courses. I know you don't need a degree to be an entrepreneur, but I wanted a college education and that appealed to me the most. I definitely learned some things that I probably would've only learned through trial and error if I never took any classes on starting a business. Plus, entrepreneurship gave me the option to take finance, accounting, business law, econ, and management. If I was an accounting major, I'd only get to take upper division accounting courses, same for management and any other specific field, so it was a nice mix of courses.

It's not a major I would recommend to everyone, but if you're certain that you want to do your own thing one day, it's probably worth looking into.

nice post...exactly how i feel, right now i'm taking a business management class(hs) and its definetly something im interest in..but my grades be lacking so prolly heading to cc or state( still a jr. tho) did you go to a 4 yr straight or yah how is ur future looking money wise. ..my dreams are fadin for me cuzz my fckin grades :/ any advice?

Get your grades up in high school, go to a community college and try to get straight A's or as close as you can to it, then transfer to a good university to finish up. Bad grades are your fault, so you need to do what it takes to get back on track.

Anyone here in grad school or finished grad school? I'm going into my 3rd year of my BA and I'm starting to think about where I want to go after. Looking into Public Policy/International Relations/Labour Relations. Does anyone have an idea of what I should expect with the application and the admission requirements? I mean the school sites and advisors only tell me so much.

& anybody at either Syracuse, Tufts, Fordham or Northwestern? Probably won't get into any of them but doesn't hurt to aim high I guess

Anyone in here looking get into the medical field? My goal school is Stanford but I'm leaning sort of towards UCI. Amy recommendations? I have to do some form of research under a doctor but I'm totally lost.


Primary care, specialty, or post-graduate research?


I'm currently attending a Community college and am keeping up with the grades, 4.0 GPA. But the thing is the requirements to get into a med school in CA is 2 years volunteer @ hospital, and some form of research. Just wanted to know what direction I could go.


Volunteer work is easy. My friend didn't even have a wide variety of volunteer work and he got into UCSD Medical School. He would go and sit with senior citizens in their room to keep them company and he'd work on his homework and talk to them. I think he also did a little bit of shadowing, which should be easy enough to find. The quality of your volunteer work is more important that meeting a time requirement.

Also, don't think that your volunteer work has to be limited to the medical field. You don't have to dedicate all your volunteer hours to being in a hospital. They just want to see that an applicant has a genuine interest in helping others. If you interview, they are going to ask you about your experience, so you should try to pick something you'll enjoy doing so you can talk passionately about it. If you like working with kids, and you have a children's hospital in your area, look into the requirements for becoming a volunteer there. For children's hospitals there is usually a bit more work involved in becoming a volunteer, so if that sounds interesting you should look into it right away so you can get started.

The research aspect can be covered when you transfer from CC to a university. Just get in touch with someone in the science department once you're a student there and find out which professors are doing research and see who you can help. It's all extracurricular, so you usually just have to be a student there and willing to help to get in. That shouldn't be difficult at all. You might even get lucky and get to be part of something that gets published, which is always a bonus on your application.

For the record, I've never seen a medical school in California explicitly state a time requirement for volunteer work, where did you get that information from?

^very low. unless they don't meet their quota which is pretty unlikely.

Well that's disappointing smh. I guess i'll be heading to CSULB then.

This might be a stupid question, but I don't care. Does anyone know how to best prepare for the LSAT? Or what degree would be best to take into law school? Or can you apply to law school with any degree?

All you need is a bachelor's degree and a competitive LSAT score. What you major in doesn't make a difference, though you'll probably see most people going into law school as english, history, political science or criminology majors.

Any university you transfer to should have a pre-med advisor in the science department. They'll be able to help you a lot more than I can.

I really dislike how some families can get full rides to school and claim to have a low family income while they have million of dollars in property investment or offshore accounts.

A lot of schools have a max on the number of units you can take each semester, so you'd have to find that out first. Assuming you're able to take 5, I would imagine you can handle it if you manage your time well. I know people who maxed out every semester to finish sooner and they seemed to handle it okay.

not sure why SC posts so late besides maybe what powerball said but they are private so they can follow their own rules. it was the last school i heard from and that was like in july lol

I really dislike how some families can get full rides to school and claim to have a low family income while they have million of dollars in property investment or offshore accounts.

not sure if this happened to u but this was similar to my situation and i didnt get anything :shrug: i know SC looked at assets as well as income

how do you guys feel about taking 5 classes a semester? i fucked up my spring semester freshman year, took this past fall semester off, but came back to school this spring semester for 2 classes. when i pass, i should have accumulated 15 credits altogether but i wanna get my AA asap so i can enlist in the air force which is why i plan on taking 5 classes for the next 3 semesters. i'm only 19 turning 20 but i feel like time is running out which is why i'm really trying to bust my ass. am i just paranoid? i want to be the few of my friends that will actually be successful and establish their self as an adult /rant

taking 5 classes (15 units) and working 20hours right now; shit sucks but i only got 2 weeks of school left. my grades arent as good as before but my cumulative gpa is high so i dont care much. i wish i took more classes each semester at community college but i was trying to get nothing but As. you can do it if you got your shit together. you need to manage your time and know how to prioritize all of the assignments you have to do.

you can easily do you just have to manage time like everyone else said. be proactive and get things done when you have free time instead of waiting until the last minute. i usually take 15 credits and i have to take 18 credits next year to graduate on time but if you manage time well it shouldn't be too hard.
