The Question Club
I read an article about why kids drop out of college, and one of the reasons was that the work was way too hard. High school didn't prepare the kids and it was just too overwhelming. A girl left a comment saying that she took all AP classes in high school and college was still too hard for her.|
1) So, for those of you who are in college, do you think you were prepared, was it significantly harder than high school or is it really completely overwhelming?
2) Is it stupid to major in something that you're just okay at, rather than really good at? Would I be setting myself up for failure?
For example, I've pretty much made up my mind that I want to go for science (conservation biology, wildlife conservation, biology... one of those. Haha.) They always say you need a strong math and science background. Math- I'm pretty pathetic at. I have the basics down but other than that, it's really challenging. I've decided on science because it's what I'm most interested in, but I'm afraid I'll end up surrounded by a bunch of science geniuses while I barely get by. I know I could easily major in English and fly right through, but I just don't want to.
3) (for those of you who don't care about the above)
If you could have something weird in a house that you built, what would it be?
I'd want a room with a ceiling that was actually a huge fish tank, so I could watch them swim around. I'm sure someone has that, but whatever.
