    no clue. dropped that french class. it was online and the whole setup sucked completely. paired with a shit "teacher" that never wanted to answer questions, it was a huge waste of time. start german in the fall, will do french when i transfer to mtsu.

    I wish I got a good gpa in undergrad. I definitely slacked it up.

    congrats man,awesome grades
    i wish i had applied myself a little more in school, just remember you only get back what you put into it, but looks like you've already got that figured out
    i still managed a decent 3.0 when all was said and done

    foreign language
    figured if I was going back I was going to learn something I actually want to learn vs what might land me some high paying job I'm going to hate





    man I wonder what I would have gotten if I had fully applied myself is it possible to get higher than a 4? lol. I mean I tried and studied, but I know I could have done a lot better. next semester I will do better, my study habits sucked this first time around

    I would suggest you minor in business or something like that so you can use your language skills in international business.... get paid well AND do what you want to do.

    lol. that online class was complete bs.

    im starting german in the fall and will do french once i transfer.

    im taking a slew of other random classes as well. havnt named a minor. right now, im just getting some required courses done and enjoying the amount of electives that this degree gives. enjoyed the shit out of philosophy and comp 1 this semester. psych was interesting and even though i didnt like stats too much, im glad i took it. lots of insight of why statistics shouldnt be trusted.
    next semester I have Comp 2, World religions, Intro to Political Science, German 1, and US history. im looking forward to those.

    honestly, even if the degree doesnt land me a job, im not wasting anything. my main goal is to learn and be challenged. im going for me first and foremost. and even if it doesnt make me any money, its a lot of stuff that is going to to help my little one too. she'll be learning it all from me later on.

    if i do land a job thanks to my degree, even if it pays what i make now (less than 30k) but i love going to do it, then it was worth the time and money. i'll be ok with being poor so long as i love what i do. i make shit pay now, but we do just fine.

    It is probably none of my business, however.. If you have a daughter, making under 30k and paying to go to college just to learn something interesting but not help you support your family; your'e doing it wrong.

    Im going to have to agree with B16. A good rule of thumb is, you shouldn't owe more in loans than what you will likely end up making in a year.. e.g. taking a $60k loan to go to college and get paid $30k is going to hurt.... a lot.

    anyway, gs and keep up the good work. its good to pick something you like because you don't want to be like my classmate; full blown dr, currently licensed, but hated his job and life. now he's in school with me.

    Get a minor in a language and a major in an applicable item. I should have finished my minor in spanish.

    I'm brushing up on my spanish and then add some portugese to the repetoire. Big stuff happening in the BRICS for business.
