Get into college in 2014:
Be black, poor, female or any other "oppressed" group.
I'm not joking. Look up "Affirmative Action"

Okay, I'm sick of seeing these so:

>Going to college next year
>Studying for a Liberal Arts degree
>Studying for a Liberal Arts degree IN ENGLISH
>Aspiring to be an author
>Not at all worried about my future

So go ahead Funnyjunk, rain on my parade. Tell me that I'm wasting my time, and tell me that I'm setting myself up for failure.

Getting into A college is easy. Getting in to a specific college is less so. The point is if you need/ want higher education, a better known/more expensive school doesn't mean you are getting anything more than the ordinary, especially when it comes to bachelor's degrees. In fact, might as well go to the cheapest 4 year program in the field you are interested in, and if you decide to master or doctorate, then apply to the good schools. I had a girlfriend got her pre-doctor schooling at a community college, 4 year double major in bio-chem for <$2500 a semester. She paid for it as a server at applebees.

I think she got knocked up and married now, but she was applying at med schools when we broke up. She got her degree for <$20,000, which I spent in my one year of college.

I am just glad I wasn't born in the USA.
Don't missunderstand me, I think the US is great, but the education system is **** .

Just have a look at my education:
7 years in Child school
3 years in High school
3 years in Trade school (2 years as an automation technician)

After trade school, I got a job in a offshore & onshore industrial service company (oil & gas industry), as an apprentice.

I plan on going to college to learn how to be a steel quality inspector, than a welding inspector, then after 10 years of experience which would set me with a 120k salary, on average, as a steel quality inspector, I'm going back to college for business management.
My hobby will be art welding, which I could profit off of in some way, and make a bit of extra cash on the side while I have some fun, or just make local repairs.
In the long run, I want my own repair business.
But, if that doesn't work out, I can rely on steel quality inspection.

no, stupid for having one of the most unfair educational systems in the world. Basically, if your dad has money, you're going to make money in the future.

If he doesn't, start working on those burger-flipping skills

1. Getting into college isn't that hard. Getting into a great college might be, but you can get a quality education with less than stellar qualifications.
2. Paying for college is definitely hard, but scholarships are out there.
3. Try a field that has a lasting position in the job market. E.g., engineers, computer scientists, some trades.

Not really on the first. The only thing I had to take that I didn't expect was a grade 12 level pre-calculus for going into biology. They just expect good grades, and some will take higher grades over lower ones for a position, and I do kinda agree with that. Somebody who may have struggled can always go to the first-come first-serve schools. It's not like it's some school for mentally impaired, you can still get a good education. I just think letting the kids who have the highest grades in first is good because:

1) They are obviously working towards getting this degree, they have picked it and their high school marks are a reflection of the type of student they may be.

2) It's really good for teaching young adults what real life is gonna be like. The notion I heard in grade 12 of "it's not fair, I work hard and they're just talented/smart so they can do better with less work" isn't an excuse in work. If it's between you two, the same experience, they're gonna choose the more efficient worker. And also, saying that the student is talented and it's not fair is selfish too. Saying anyone should be denied access to continue what they like and are talented in because you claim to work harder irritates me so badly.

I did plan on going to university (or colledge to americans) for biology based on a recommendation from my high school (I got a near perfect biology grade). First thing the lecturer said in first lesson was that he wouldn't be suprised if no one in the entire group got a job in the profession. Decided to drop out and got a job maintaining gas pipes. Hard work, but earning $1600 per week is worth it That and the boss dragged our asses to the pub and paid to get us all hammered every fortnight or so.

maybe try picking a major that actually has jobs lined up for it? Your degree in renaissance literature isn't gonna get you anywhere. (bet you thought i was gonna say "as an artist" right?). But seriously, i wanted to be a video game concept artist, but i knew that my drawing styles are not up to speed, and it's the field that EVERYONE is trying to get in, so the competition leaves me out, so i decided to go with my backup, and that is to be an American Sign Language interpreter
