I think I also got accepted to SFSU, I didn't get a letter through the mail but I got an email saying thank you for applying we hope you choose to join us in August so I'm assuming I made the cut. If so 3 out of 4. Fuck I am feeling lucky.

i've dropped with a w before. nothing happened because i was taking 18 credits and it only dropped it to 15 so as long as you're still full time you should be good.

I just looked at my financial aid report, and it says I'm not eligible for the Pell Grant. Why so? I'm a first-year applicant for a Cal State graduating from high school. My mom's salary is about 70k. Could that be the reason?

I went to U of A for a couple of years. It was a lot of fun, tons of good looking girls that love to party and tons of crazy events and parties and stuff. blushing

I transferred home to UDub so I could be closer to home and am FINALLY ready to apply to my program. Pretty much all set for the Business college just gotta drop my application off. Anybody else sick of prereqs and stupid ass classes? I'm ready for some actual finance classes. blushing

Dude wouldn't careers for sociology be like working for social services and welfare and shit? Don't get a BA in that, earn a major in what you really want so you can earn some money after school.

Well if you want to help people that may be a good route, but if you want to do something in the future to earn a better living you might want to consider a different degree. Is there something broader that you could help people with and be consdiered for other things if you ever want? Like public relations?

Money/ High Salary isn't the only thing that makes life worth living. If the guy wants to live a give his life some meaning by working a job that may not pay much but helps a lot of people than that's what he should do.

I realize that. All I'm saying is that a degree in a broader field can help him do the same thing + allow him the freedom to do something that can make him more money one day, if he so desires.

It all won't really matter in the end. 5 or 10 years down the line potential employers will look that you have any sort of degree, plus the experience you've gotten since. What your degree is on won't end up mattering much most likely.
