Yeah, I absolutely love mathematics (and everything to do with it - from discrete maths to business to accounting/bookkeeping). The issue is that I equally hate being in a think tank, loathe the whole process of dealing with other mathematicians, and can't really see myself being a long-term accountant/bookkeeper (although, that one gig where I was a bookkeeper for an adult website in London, England was .... interesting).

I guess, in the long-run, it's all something to do. I'm not sure what all I really want to do, at the end of the day. Thoughts of early retirement that can keep me going until I'm about 70 is realistic (if I work for another 2-3 years). But I would lose my mind doing absolutely nothing for that length of time.


As a Geologist we have to coexist sadly. I prefer to spend my time alone, but even plate tectonics was seen as a joke until Earth's magnetic polarity was revealed. We all have to think tank our stuff if I ever want to do research. I would assume its the same for mathematics.

That is the one nice thing about ES with ACE. I don't think tank as much, instead focusing on the current issues at hand and how to fix them. The USA needs that now, more so than ever.

Anyone from a school that you are interested in attending. If they tell you that they will take these 50 credits or whatever, ask them to please write it all down and sign it so you can keep a record in order to make a decision. My school worked with me, but my final year told me I actually didn't have the credits for my minor. I was one short so I could go to school another whole semester for the one credit or not have a minor. And when I said that I was instructed of a schedule and followed it to a T they asked for proof.

I've also heard of other schools getting schedules and credits messed up and then not taking the blame and trying to make the student make up the credits. It's not to say they are bad people, it's just to say get that stuff in writing so you have something to back up your position.


1 credit ? can we just do it online ? i think 1 credit is usually for a lab

Do we need to coming with body camera now a day ?

Not quite yet, but with the courses I've taken I'll definitely leave with degrees in math, physics, chemistry, and engineering. They'll all be associates degrees, but it's better than nothing.

Nope. I'm still young, though. Still, I'm not keen on the expense.

Acquired a few over the years. Even with all that time spent in academia either advancing or re-inventing myself the most enjoyable job held was driving 18-wheelers outside versus dealing with office demands inside.

Hahaha one credit for my specific minor. I'd had to kinda do a makeshift thing. They wanted another few grand from me is what I was trying to say and I said no. I didn't need it, I just wanted it. But I was just giving an example of how a counselor might tell you one thing but the administration may say another when it's too late for you to do anything about it. So just get what they tell you in writing. You'll be fine.

I believe general education credits will transfer and not expire no matter how long it has been since they were taken. I think for science classes the credits can transfer over for 5 years after you left college. Other classes I think it is around 10 years.

Before you take the plunge into a major and dedicate your time and money you should think ahead of the future and look at what jobs are available that are in need of the expertise the degree should provide you with. Make sure you really check the job market or else you could end up with a Bachelors in Psychology and no demand to get a job in that field unless you wanna work for 3$ more than minimum wage lmao.


You would think with a lot of people going mental (triggered at the simplest things) -- micro-aggressors ?? there would be a boom for psychologists no ?

a co-worker of mine has a master degree in ...um... i forgot what it was. He can design various things. They offered him $12.50/hr in 2011. It's when you have too many people in that one profession...

Well, this brings back memories from my past, lol. My cousin, who was pulling in low 6-figures at the time as a contractor, suggested I go the Mechanical Drafting route like him. I followed his advice and compounded the error by listening to a good friend, head drafter for McDonnell-Douglas back in the day who also earned well, who suggested I get the 4-year degree in Computer Drafting versus 90-day wonder via night school (my intent). Hell, by the time I got through all the high-paying drafting jobs had become redundant thanks to computer technology advances. No 6-figure income came my way doing that; more like Law of Unintended Consequences: 2nd shift, entry level in a manufacturing corporation with CYA / CYB 24/7 to boot.
