Is there any reason why you can't just take a few more classes at the community college? Try to find something that comes really easy to you to up your GPA?
I confess that I feel like a total failure when the daycare kids don't eat my food.
It's silly but it can make or break my whole day. So friday I made black bean soup and it bombed. None of them ate more than a few bites. I was like, "Oh hells no!" and I made them banana french toast for snack. No one gets out of here hungry.
If all that makes any sense, I applaud whoever understands it, hehe.
I don't really get the tax part lol but if you take a full semester at the community college, it won't be any different than taking them at the university, right? You'll still be getting the classes done.
As far as the taxes go, to determine financial aid, if you're under the age of 24 (or aren't married, have children, etc, anything that makes you independent in the government's eyes), they look at your parent's taxes to determine eligibility. My mom made just enough that when I went to CC, I only got 3,500 in a loan for the whole year, and that definitely wasn't enough to cover expenses. So I couldn't afford school, and had to wait until I turned of age, so they could see I make diddly squat and give me funding so I could afford school.
Wouldn't classes be cheaper at the community college also?
Is it just a two year college? That might be hard.
I'm wondering since the pre-med courses are not really common to one college - you can take them anywhere - if I had to make up courses at a CC if I could take some of them there and soften the blow when I go to Uni.
A child I used to care for came back to visit and her mom said that at her new school they are rushed through their meals because the day is so packed that they have to stick to a schedule. She said her daughter is always starving when she picks her up. She was like, "The way she talked about food when she was with you, you'd think that's all you guys did all day."
I guess I do put a lot of focus on food but I think it's just as important for kids to learn where food comes from and what it does for their bodies as it is to learn ABC's.
I'm trying to learn how to eat better since I wasn't really taught to eat well as a child. I love fruits, not so happy with veggies, but I'm trying to cook them in different ways to make them taste better. Just recently, I made grilled fruit for Clinton and I.. it was sooo delicious!
Is UTA one of the really big schools in the state? Just wondering how picky they are. In my state really only 2 of the big state schools are picky...the rest will take most anyone.
Also, if you are applying for financial aid, you MUST be enrolled in a degree program, not just taking a few classes. And do NOT get any private student loans...only get federal (subsidized is best but unsubsidized is ok too).
I'm going for my B.A. in English, plus the pre-med courses.. I wanted to major in Russian, but I didn't meet the requirements I guess I'll take it as an elective.
Summer classes would be extra. The longer and further you get in school, the more money you can get.
Money is always the problem.
I spent quite a few years in school and basically planned out things for my younger sister and helped DH when we were dating. I wanted to be an admissions person/academic advisor. I used to LOVE getting the schedules each semester and plotting out my courses. I wish that I could have made a career of being a student!
As far as academics go, I'm definitely going to do any essays on the application, which are optional for transfer students. Essays are my bread and butter, so I'm thinking that's gonna give my application some extra "oomph", and then add that to my GPA from CC, and that might help me get in.
Sarah, good luck with your interview!
Lauren, I transferred schools three times, and although I wish I could have done more classes at a community college level for the expense, not all of my classes were credited at University. I would definitely talk to your end-destination school and see what would be allowed vs not. I had to submit documentation and argue my case for a few classes.
I just found out dh might go to Europe for a week in late April, within 1-3 weeks of my due date. That's in addition to the week he'll be gone 10 days after my C-Section. I am dealing with the thought that I might be alone for the birth and my hospital stay, if I go early. And I guess I'm okay with it, but I'll be lonely. I'm glad my phone has internet capability.
Lydia, glad to know I'm not the only one who transferred 3 times as an undergrad! And even better the last time I moved it was because I wanted to be closer to my boyfriend (we were about an hour apart)...at least he eventually turned into my DH.
OMG, I can't believe that he might be doing that to you. Maybe he will change his mind and be around. I would kill mine if he ever did that to me if I ever would end up pg...course he probably won't be in the delivery anyway since he passes out for blood and blood tests and can't even watch fake stuff like Grey's on TV.
If they have your transcripts, than they should be able to tell you what they are taking as transfer and what category they will put it under.
