    College

    I'm in my third year at Minnesota State. Iím a biology major and sick of school. The semester just started 3 weeks ago and I canít take it anymore. Its so much work anyway you slice it, thereís no getting around it. Anyone that doesnít study and pulls a 3.0..just plain ****es me off. Post your experience with school.

    i was the same way the second semester of my sophomore year. I think that happens to everyone at some point. Thats why the drop out rate is so high in college. Just stick with it and it'll be over soon.. hopefully anyway

    stick with it, you're just freaking out. Trust, no matter the workload and number of stress filled days, it all works out. Just enjoy the positive aspects (which is about everything other than the work . I wend to U.of Marlyand, had a blast, miss it every moment. Now I'm working and studying for my graduate admission exams. Once I go back to school part time while working, now that'll be a nightmare.

    I totally understand. Sometimes I walk into Calculus and its just argggghhh.

    But you're over half way. Think of it like this. Make it through just these 4 years out of your 90 and its smooth sailing from there. Money, fast cars, and beautiful women. That's what happens after college, right?

    Thatís right I canít wait for the ladies! I gotta graduate...the way I see it...school is a HUGE rip off until you get your degree. I just hope work isnít as stressful as school.

    I did full time college and full time work for the last three years at Towson State University, then the first two (community college) did part time at two jobs. it was hell, but the degree is worth it. thinking of doing grad, but taking a bit of a break.

    some of us do not have the luxary of *just* doing school and that's it. I had to pay for all of mine. could not get any state or federal grants since my parents make a certain bracket, they and I had no debt, and they were not going to pay for my college like their parents did. i was really ****ed at the feds since I was under 24 years old and could not be seen as independent to get any freakin aid. did it all with no loans, no debt, nor could get any scholarships.

    stick in there and be lucky that you don't have to work your *** off to even be where you are.

    I worked part time in college and managed to avoid loans until my last year and a half. My parents also disqualified me for anything but loans. I am very glad that I got my degree though and am looking at going to get my MBA in the spring. Partly looking forward to it, partly dreading it since I've been out of school for 3 years. After that, I am done w/ school.
