I am not a student but I keep learning new things everyday. In that I find net a useful place to be in. Aren't you taking on quite a load for one semester. Perhaps you know what is best for you. All the best to you. I am sure you will get wonderful grades.

Thanks, I'm currently holding a 3.833 GPA. Taking 4 more classes this semester: Managerial Accounting 102, English Comp 112, Interpersonal Communications 102, and Business Law 102. The Comm. class is going to suck, I have to depend on my "group" for my grade, which is B.S. to stick an A student in a group of people who don't care as long as they pass. All the best to you, too.

Oops, guess I should read my own post. Thought this was an old post from before Christmas break. (insert red face here)...I also took 4 classes each over summer session and fall semester.

Well, if you find that those in your group aren't trying hard enough, you can talk to the professor about it. Furthermore, if the professor doesn't maybe take into consideration the individuals students, you can appeal your grade. I never had to face that before, but first approach the professor. If that does not work, then talk to maybe your advisor &/or the departmental chairperson. As to what nanands said about learning new things, that is VERY true. Just because you finish your degree(s), you never stop learning. I'm thinking back to this story about Albert Einstein. Someone started a conversation with him who did not know he was talking to Einstein asked him, "And what do you do?" His reply was, "I study physics." In the meantime, he was already famous for his theory of relativity.

Well, I was a student up to 1999. I had been a part-time student when I first started because I registered at the college too late to be a full-time student. After that, I changed my major, turned into a cold & flu magnet throughout the school year, changed back & got good grades. Then went back to engineering, & being that I was attending a community college, I tried taking everything I could transfer at the lower tuition costs. My junior & senior year courses were done on a part-time basis, but when I graduated, Daddy Bush's recession made it tough to find a job. I continued on & got my master's, but that turned out to be a mistake, having a master's degree & no field experience.

Yeah - that's true about not wanting to hire an applicant that's smarter than them. Also, another reason is that many firms have a policy in which there is a differential for having a master's degree that companies don't want to pay, unless there's experience. Oh - if I leave off the master's degree, & the company finds out about it later, I can be fired for withholding information, even if it's years down the road. This may not be as bad as someone claiming that they have a master's degree on their resume that they don't have, well, it may also be considered not good.

I'm a student as well. Pursuing my MFA. I'm taking two independent studies this spring, which I should be working on instead of hanging out here! At the risk of sounding like we're in a cheap bar, what's your major?

Wow, you sound pretty determined. Good for you! lol on the "cheap bar" comment, hahaha--good one. Seriously tho, going for my BBA, majoring in accounting. Pencil-pusher, bean counter, whatever, i enjoy it :) At the risk of sounding illiterate, what are you mastering?

lol -- just the very fact that you can spell illiterate means you're not. I'm majoring in screenwriting and film studies. My undergrad is in communications, when I saw you were taking interpersonal comm, I thought you might be a fellow Comm major, and I was going to try to talk you out of it.

hahaha, I appreciate that. Nah, I'm taking it to learn to be a little more diplomatic. Kind of a redheaded hothead sometimes and that isn't going to fly in the business world. Film sounds facsinating, tho.

I was a student two years ago, and I think I might go back to school soon to get my teaching credential... I've been thinking about getting into the administrative side... I took a photo class at a Junior College right by me just for fun last semester!
