    I plan on double majoring in Political science and international law. I've taken 12 AP's throughout my high school career and have passed all 11 and only need two more semesters for an AA degree. So I'm considering Community College. I know I can get into colleges, that's besides the point. I have a long resume of club work, volunteer work, and internships. However due to economic reasons I'm considering community college. I'm a good student and my goal is to graduate with a neear perfect GPA in college along with other extra curricular activities. I plan to do my major at FSU which has one of the best political science programs. But will starting off at a community college slim my chances at law school persay at Oxford or Notre Dame or UChicago?

  • Can I apply to grad school for a M.A. or Ph.D. in Psychology if my B.A. is in Sociology?

    Can I apply to grad school for a M.A. or Ph.D. in Psychology if my B.A. is in Sociology?

    Good day, I'm inquiring my options for when I finish my B.A. in Sociology. I'll have my B.A. in December 2019 and I'm minoring in psychology. I will have my A.A. in 12/17 from NPC at Hot Springs, Ark. and I'm transferring to HSU during January 2018, where I will spend four semesters for my studies.... show more
    Good day, I'm inquiring my options for when I finish my B.A. in Sociology. I'll have my B.A. in December 2019 and I'm minoring in psychology. I will have my A.A. in 12/17 from NPC at Hot Springs, Ark. and I'm transferring to HSU during January 2018, where I will spend four semesters for my studies. Afterward, I'd like to attend grad school and pursue a doctorate so I can teach at a college, counsel, and do research--- I assume a Ph.D. in psychology would be the appropriate degree to obtain? If I'm majoring in sociology and minoring in psychology, will I be able to get into grad school for a psychology/ counseling program or a similar discipline that would allow me to teach, research, and counsel in the field of mental health? I've enclosed a copy of my degree plan/ course history if that helps. It includes the general education curriculum, sociology bulk, and psychology classes. Would I be able to go directly into a Ph.D. program after my B.A. or would I need to go through a Master's degree before pursuing the doctorate? Your input is deeply appreciated. Please feel free to ask questions if you have any.

    Best answer: Private universities have endowments. An individual or several individuals or business gives large amount of money to set up the university, Vanderbilt an Stanford are examples of private universities with more than one college. individuals can also give large amounts of money to a public university to set up a college.

    Both public and private university get funds from the federal government. private universities have a president and board of directors.. Public universities have a president and usually a board of regents for the state. The board of regents can decide whether a university gets funding for certification program or not.Private universities and colleges usually get less federal grants from the federal government than public universities. Land grant universities can have BOTH public AND private
    colleges. Cornell university is land grant university. The College of Arts and Sciences is private, Ivy league college..

    Tuition rates are usually higher at private colleges and universities than public colleges and universities. Private universities it usually does not matter, tuition wise, whether you are in-state or out of state, For public universities and colleges, out of state tuition is greater than in state tuition.. It usually, but not always, takes at least a year to establish residency.. If you are EMPLOYED in Texas, it takes only 2 months to establish residency, but you have to change your driver's license within that 2 months. That may NOT apply to establixhing residency for Texas universities and colleges..

    Try to ignore how universities and colleges are or what their local reputations are. Anything that is local is ALWAYS "worse than anything that is private or out of State. Tulane's Newcomb college used to have reputation for being a finishing school for debutantes. it was REALLY ironic how many girls went to new comb for their junior year of college in the 1970's. Then went back out of state to finish college and graduate for their senior year.; LSU Baton Rouge AND the University of New Orleans, which is no longer part of LSU system also had bad local reputations.Delgado STILL has a bad reputation locally. I know people who graduated from the SUNY colleges.

    The college and university ratings is RIGGED 'game, because the colleges and universities rate THEMSELVES as well as the other universities and colleges.. Make your decisions based upon what degree programs and majors the colleges of the universities offer.. Tulane no longer offered what i wanted at the graduate level.. That's WHY i went to the university of Oklahoma for graduate school. now I've been in Oklahoma more than half my life. In my head i AM a 4th generation Okie. Louisiana is just where i was born and did a lot growing up, but I grew up in the Oklahoma panhandle as well..

Its a dx racer and its very comfortable especially since i will be on it a lot and the provided chair isnt great. It would also seem like my money is just sitting at home in the loft/attic if i dont bring it.

    Best answer: If the courses included in the certificate program are exactly the same ones included in the degree program, then the answer is probably "yes." A guidance counselor or clerk in the registrar's office of the college can tell you for sure, but the general rule is that the courses will count twice if they are exactly the same ones, and if the student continues into the degree program within a reasonable amount of time. Check with experts for the details.

  • Do colleges garner more in terms of notoriety, public money, etc if they award more degrees/certificates?

    I go to The University of Akron in Ohio and their admissions have been low as of recent. I was thinking of proposing the idea of modifications to the student accounts that let students see how much they have towards potential minors or other majors, in case people want to get double majors or minors that they may not have known about before. However, I don't know if the idea would be worth it if it didn't benefit The University of Akron. I would think that if they were known awarding more degrees/certificates (even if people have multiple ones), their admissions would go up. And if I am thinking correctly and The University of Akron didn't take the idea, would I have reason to be suspicious that they make bad advisement on the classes people are supposed to take for certain majors, that way they keep students longer and make more money off of them?

    My ideal career situation would be to open a private practice where I counsel individuals from potentially traumatic backgrounds and consult with them on developing their own business (as a vehicle for healing). Question is: how do I get there from here in the least disruptive and quickest time? Background I m 30, a 2nd year doctoral student in Organization Management (focus on Entrepreneurship) with a full ride scholarship for 4 years. I knew exactly what the research career entailed when I applied - plan was to endure the struggle to secure tenure as a business professor and develop or lead a university s entrepreneurship center focusing the effort on entrepreneurs from marginalized backgrounds and small businesses. Problem is, recently I ve begun to question whether I can see myself being in academia for even the next 10 years (to gain tenure) before I start doing something and having already gained two academic degrees in the past (B.s.Psychology; MA Sociology/Education) (although i worked professionally for several years in management), I ve been feeling a strong tug myself to invest my mental resources in self-employment or developing my own consultant venture - but of course that s not ideal while in a PhD program. I ve been particularly interested in a life of private practice and I ve been looking into the joint degree at my school with psychology, however it s only an option with social psychology -another academic, non-clinical degree. Help?

    Best answer: The general estimate for raising a child to age 18 is about $200,000 to $250,000.

    I have always found this number to be ridiculous as it did not cost anywhere near that to raise our girls who were born in 1992, and 1995.

    If you factor in college, without any scholarships or financial aid it would cost $9,000 per year for the state university our now 24 year old daughter attended and our now 21 year old daughter currently attends, so about $36,000 for a four year degree. Of course you can spend a lot more if you go to a private college.

    Best answer: Yeah, because generally in college the students who do the best are the ones that are disciplined and have to take difficult courses to be competitive. They're not the ones majoring in feminist dance therapy and then wondering why they don't have a job. They're majoring in business, science, or computer science and having employers beg them to work for them.

    It's not that the majors are boring, but it is often true that they are more challenging.
