How is/was college for you? I'm applying this year, and I want to hear about where people here go.
Where do you go? Unless you do Engineering or a hard science, it usually doesn't end up like that. I think the trick seems to be that you don't spend all day watching Hulu or something.My experience so far with university: (yeah shut up it's a demotivational)
Make a list of courses you want to take, and look up the time slots. They'll send you an e-mail about when your course registrations are. What major are you looking into?Going to Simon Fraiser University next fall and still trying to figure out how the fuck to organize my time table.
In SFU, it`s more about beating the system (really pathetic). I managed to hit those grades with minimal work, maximum bullshit. General Chemistry was pretty pathetic. The scale is fucked, and all professors care about is how many kids pass, rather than how many people actually learn the stuff. Of course, this is only first year; in second year courses, I`ve met some really awesome professors.You must be really smart. I heard chemistry is super difficult. At least it was for me.
I'd rather not specify. It's a fairly well-known business college in an affluent college town, if that has any relevancy.That sounds great. Where did you go?
Wow, a 75% dropout rate. I don't think I can even list anyone I know who's dropped out of college. Most people I know say it's easier than high school.
I'm in the arts and social sciences faculty and I'm thinking of majoring in either history or humanities, but I'm also interested in geography and geology, so I'm not really all the sure yet.Make a list of courses you want to take, and look up the time slots.

FYI, scholarship recipients and athletes get top priority, then 4th-1st year, so unless you got a scholarship from them, or you're an athlete, you may get screwed for some of the more popular time slots or courses.
All honesty, I prefer the UBC campus, because SFU is a bit isolated, on Burnaby Mountain.
Take a good variety of courses in your first year. You probably don't know what you want to do with your life at the moment, and I find alot of Arts students change their majors frequently, unless you're set on what you want to do.I'm in the arts and social sciences faculty and I'm thinking of majoring in either history or humanities, but I'm also interested in geography and geology, so I'm not really all the sure yet.
I'm getting an entrance scholarship as far as I know, so that's always good.
UBC is pretty far away from me, at 1 - 1.5 hours on the bus, and I absolutely fell in love with SFU's architecture when I first visited there, so that was actually a pretty big influence on my decision.
