    Some things about college: 1) Don't go to college just to go to college. Be honest with yourself and your family and do something you're genuinely interested in, even if it means you won't go to college, but do something that is actually useful to society. There is nothing wrong with doing a trade 1.5) Do your research properly before going to college. Find out what people REALLY do at their jobs, what the course was like, what the pay is like, how high they can climb the corporate ladder, what the working hours are like, etc. No point in getting a degree in something because you like the topic but hate the job 2) Use condoms 3) Getting a degree isn't about being clever, it's about hard work and time management. Clever people who are lazy don't get degrees 4) Strike a balance between social and school life. You will make life-long friends in college but it's your future you playing with as well 5) You will find out what real stress is like. Learn to manage it 6) Getting a degree gives you skeleton knowledge. You will learn a lot more at your job. Don't think you're an expert when you get that piece of paper 7) Don't overqualify yourself. I would suggest getting your bachelors, work for a few years and then get a masters and PhD (if you want). You'll have a better idea of what you want to further yourself in. I have friends who had no brakes and got their PhD without working a bit first and now are too overqualified for entry level jobs, thus can't get jobs 8) Be yourself. College is a melting pot full of people with different interests. This isn't high school. Chances are you'll find a niche bunch of people to fit in with

      It doesn’t have to be like that trust me. Even in engineering, if you focus every time you study and do homework, and don’t procrastinate, you’ll still have some free time before bed. The people in engineering that fail and say it’s too difficult are the ones that procrastinate and don’t study effectively. You can do any degree if your disciplined trust me, I started out in arts with a 2.3 gpa, told my self enoughs enough, worked hard and now I’m doing electrical engineering and have a 3.6 gpa. DONT PROCRASTINATE, and you can literally do anything I’m serious.

    So I have four siblings and we are each 1 year apart from each other. For some reason we have been competing to see who can get into the best college (the one with the lowest acceptance rate.) My sister set the bar high by going to Cornell for business. A year later my other raised the bar by going to hard and to study law. After that get into Stanford to major in biology to become a surgeon. Year after I go to college my brother went to NYU for film. As you can tell I my family thought my brother was a failure as he did not get into an elite college. Fast forward a couple years my Sisters are making fun of my brother for majoring in film as he can’t get an jobs. Fast forward 8 years and my sister’s careers are failing and my brother’s is filming and editing brig movies.

    They told us that 2-3 hours rule too. The thing is: we have ~8 hours of lectures a day. There is no possible way for us to study that much.

    • Johanna

      8 hours lecture. 2 hours for each lecture = 16 Together 24. You have 24 hours in a day. Fits perfectly they have definitely thought that through when they told you.

    lots of people go to college here, until some fail out, still a smart kid. That or I'm a hard worker. Which'd be odd, I have procrastinated for every day in the last month. That doesn't mean that I did no work, but it's also indicative of my work ethic that even on the days I do something I delay being productive.

      Ideally you would be considered a 3rd year junior after completing a 2-year associates program, but it depends on how many of your transfer credits the college accepts. Good luck with your degree!

    College/Uni: You think its important because everyone else forced you to think it's important but it not really THAT important University: where they claim about 9 hours of work per 3 unit class but its really like 3 because the 9/10 professors don't give enough of a fuck to teach to the textbook. (and good on them) University: Where you pay thousands of dollars to be told to read something you could of done for free.

    Also important expectation setting for future business students: expect the entire year to be holiday season with the exception of 1-2 weeks of studying 5 (productive) hours a day every 2-4 months and the occasional assignment or 2 per month that you'll maybe spend 4 days on, on average. Bonus points if you're European and don't have to sell an arm and a leg to get your degree :)
