• Does college make you smart?

    Best answer: Coursework, independent thinking, research, etc, all exercise your brain. So a smart person will get "smarter," use more of their brain. In fact, it is not at all unusual for IQ test scores to increase from high school to college - IF you are really working at it, taking challenging courses, working on... show more

    I'm a second year college student and things have been really going downhill. I've been a top A student for most of my life but I'm beginning to worry. My first year of college, I had good grades, not as high as high school but definitely good. This semester I don't know what has happened but I have zero motivation to study. I go to lectures and zone out the entire class. I can't sit down and study for more that 5 minites without getting bored and distracted. I used to be great at studying but I honestly can't anymore. I feel burnt out. I get on average 4 hours of sleep a night, I'm always anxious, sad, and tired. These are all due to college. How can I get back into the game and be motivated?

  • Can I still bring up my grades and get in a good college?

    Best answer: Nothing before 9th grade matters for college applications. They won't care or ask. Your GPA goes up anytime your current grades are higher than your average grades. So yes, your grades can go up. If you got perfect A's in every class, you'd end up with about a 3.2 GPA. Yes, you can get into... show more

  • Why do Americans go away for college?

    I live in Australia and here most people just go in their own city. Only the foreign students actually live on campus. So why do most Americans travel hundreds of miles and then live on campus instead of just going to college in their home city like in Australia?

  • Should college classes do this ?

    They should make kids signing up for college take a life 101 class. Like before they can take college classes take something like a prep class.

    They should make kids signing up for college take a life 101 class. Like before they can take college classes take something like a prep class. That teaches kids how much money they will make graduating. Where will they live? Is the job competitive? Is the job increasing or decreasing? Then do a comparative to will they be able to pay back loans. And taking out a house mortgage and understanding payments. Like people take out loans go for the cheaper payment a month. It ends up costing more because they pay longer collateral. That and healthy relationships. Or even what makes a good deal for a car. I had to figure this out on my own. It is not fun. Or how to get medical insurance.

  • Should you live in the dorms when you go to college?

    Best answer: In my opinion, yes. It's a great experience- you're a little more independent than when living with your parents, but not completely on your own yet (no utility payments, for example). Then there are people around who are studying the same things you are, and often doing the same assignments. We used to... show more

  • Is this a good snippet to include in my college admissions essay?

    "I boarded that airplane an 18 year old girl whose idea of the way the world worked would turn as fast as the leaves changed color on that fateful autumn day. I eventually boarded the same airplane, but with a mind 30 years older when the following October came."

    Best answer: They want the funding the federal government would giv e them is probably why. universities are businesses that make money and part of the funding comes from the federal government, This is true for BOTH public AND private universities for like Tulane. I am two time alumna or private AND a public universities. Tulane did NOT OFFER what i wanted at the graduate level. The University of Oklahoma did, or I thought it did at the time applied for admission.That changed after my first semester, but did not change my mind. I had wanted to go to the university of Oklahoma for VERY long time.

    They also save money because they don't have to pay the staff to process your information since you are already enrolled is another reason..The quality of the graduate degree programs is completely irrelevant, Saving and getting more money from the government and businesses and alumnae and donors is the reason.

    How do college students get their own place when preparing to transfer to Universities? Do they either save a lot of money up or just rent a room with housemates near the University?
