3rd year Biomedical Engineering, Pre-Medical Track...yeah, it's a helluva ride



I've had a couple of pre-med roommates and you have my condolences. I swear the last one was literally being driven insane due to class work, lol.

the financial aid office


I hated this aspect of college life. My parents couldn't financially support me for college, so financial aid played a crucial role in funding my education.

Most of the advisors acted so high and smug, because they knew students were at their mercy in terms of how much grants and sub and unsubbed loans, work study, etc. they received.

I still remember long lines, uncomfortable personal questions asked, judgmental looks, etc.


Damn bro, that some BULLSH*T! We just get a card that acts as a debit/credit card.


We got that too! Campus card.
I'm getting back 4,371$. So far I've gotten about 1400$ back from my refund, the rest is still pending i'll have it by the middle of next month.

Quite terrible goings as of late. I might have to right off this Intro to Chemistry class im in and withdraw from it at the community college I'm in. I hate it with a passion. I'm hoping Biology next semester might be easier since I never took chemistry in highschool. Not to mention I have 2 online classes that start in mid October, and I've never done an online class before.

I'm seriously reconsidering majoring in computer science for the simple fact that I don't enjoy science classes all that much. The university I want to enroll in here in Florida requires University physics with calculus 1 and 2, and 2 classes for science majors. I'm really getting discouraged with all this. It feels like I'm going nowhere :(


Coming from someone who knows a close friend in almost the same position you're in, I'd advise you to either change your major/drop the classes, or get serious tutoring. Or, try getting an online degree where you go at your own pace, and pay a lot less while still getting a good education.

Or if college is not for you, get into a trade school.

There's not point struggling, and doing something you don't like. Do something you can understand well, and enjoy.

Don't listen to people; listen to YOU.

Thanks for the advice. I'm at a community college right now so the difficulty, outside of this chemistry class, hasn't hit me too hard. I'm just getting burned out from all these lower level undergrad classes to meet general education requirements. Couple that with the difficulty of this Intro to Chem class, and the lack of interest in all these other classes-its almost like a double wammy of discouragement this semester.

I just don't know if that includes computer science. The only reason I was doing is because I wanted to work in the game industry and I have a mild interest in computers. Everyone in my family thought that computer science would be good in case I washout I would still have option. I just want to get my AA degree and move on to the actual degree at a 4 year university. I may try to look into a private college rather then public since it seems like they're focusing on the actually degree rather then a bunch of lower level classes that have nothing to do with my major.

im a freshmen architecture student at the Technological Institute of the Philippines. and i must say, college is fun, ! but architecture is a different thing.. all of my professors are licensed architects and they have a very high standard. but i want it that way..and i know i'll get used to it sooner...




I CAN DO IT. I WILL DO BETTER.

I can understand, but hey, laziness pays off today, but hardwork pays off tomorrow.
Give it time.

Sixthform is pretty good, especially since I silenced my cunt of a maths teacher.

College is easy for classes other than science and engineering. I am a student of Engineering and it is extremely demanding. I have like 11 hour days with 1 hour for lunch and free time. Sucks.

Are you saying I didn't? Because he kept on telling me to drop from the course, saying that I'm being unrealistic and that it's too hard for me, saying my work was terrible and an abysmal effort. Later on in the lesson we got the assessment results back and I had the highest. He very quietly said "Well done." with a rather depressing face compared to his usual annoying smiles when he gave me mine.
