Take what you can get. Just because your professors tell you that your chosen field is expanding and you won't have any trouble getting a job doesn't mean you will. Have a backup plan.

This varies depending on which faculty/specialization you end up going with... but if you're going into Engineering, I found that most of the Math/Physics teachers are 'meh' compared to say, teachers from my elective classes. May just be the subject themselves, but I rarely learned effectively in the classroom from them. Their way of explaining topics just did not click with me and was way more confusing than it needs to be. I recommend that you should look into the topics you would be covering in class and find study them online prior. It would save you a lot of headache and allow you to expand your understanding when it comes to lecture time in class.
Some really helpful resources would be:
Paul's Notes http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/,
KhanAcademy https://www.khanacademy.org/
StudyPug(paid) https://www.studypug.com/how.html
PatrickJMT on Youtube

Hope this helps you out and best of luck to you!

Don't take 3 years off before starting grad school since you will have to spend a good chunk of time just getting caught back up.

After attending EMBA events I decided to apply to IE Business School, I want to get MBA Degree in the next few years. Hope it will help me to make a successful career in business. So now I can say that college classes aren't like high school classes. You need to have friends in your classes to study with and to help you out when you don't know what you're doing. This can be vital.

That my average art skill weren't going to land me a job in my field that would pay off the loans I took out for art school. My secretary job is doing that just fine,

If you feel that the degree is a lost cause, change majors to something that will be useful. Just because you enjoy the hobby and want to do it for a living isn't a always viable option. Pick something that will get you a decent paycheck that you won't hate doing. You can still do what you love with or without the degree as a side job.


I found out halfway through after years of in class project critiques where everyone stays silent because they don't want to say its bad. Even the professors wont say anything. And they won't fail you because they see the effort was put in.

Years of being rejected for art related jobs only sealed that feeling. And that was assuming anyone was willing to pay for the work being done. Most people just ask me for logo or poster designs without compensating me for my time or the materials and printing costs that I pay out of pocket.

Art just doesn't pay.

hmm, you should actually try to make friends and not just assume the person who always wants to do projects with you is your friend [also, she's not going to do any work and drop out half way through a major project. but the teacher will give you full marks because he feels bad] also don't procrastinate, and while the school was fun, you really are doing a pointless course because you don't pursue a career in that field and you should of gone with something you chose instead of being told to take by others.

"it's a good degree with many job opportunities"


It's a big fat lie.. College/university counselors are pretty much salesman.... it's like going to a car stealership asking them which cars would be best to buy
