Annoying things about College

Posted on: March 27, 2008 4:40 am

1) It Costs to much

2) There is never anywhere to park, at least not on my campus, it's terrible, I have to pay $450 a semester just to be garanteed a parking spot that is 8 blocks away from my building, thats bull !

3) They make you take "general" classes that have nothing to do with the area that you are interested it, just so the college can make more money (see #1) its just stupid.  I don't want to take classes on accounting, I am a financae major, I want to learn about the market and how to value stocks, etc.  That's why I went to college, I don't want to be an accountant, so why the hell do I need to take these pointless classes.

4) They just lowered the credit requirement from 126 to 120 in my last semseter of college and two classes that I took last semester are no longer counting towards my degree.

5) College advisors are all idiots, why in the hell do you hire people to advise students what classes to take, when they have no clue what the hell they are doing !?  Must be due to #1

6) I absolutley HATE the fact that depending on which teacher you take the coresponding difficulty level varies.  That is just dumb, if you take a class with Dr. Lin, you should be graded and learn the same things as if you take the same class with Dr. Joe, right !?  So why is it than whenever you talk to a fellow college student they are always saying take this class with so-&-so it is way easier than if you take it with so-&-so that is just pointless !

7) Grading scales differ from professor to professor and some base your grade off of total points, and others use precentages, annoying !

8) When you take a class and have to sit in a desk designed for a middle school student, wow, you make enough money to afford nice classrooms, don't you!?

9) Disclaimer***** I am NOT racists, but when you get a professor that cannot speak english very well, it makes the class that much harder

10) The people that float through college and mommy and daddy pay for everything and they don't even try but yet you get stuck in their group and have work with them.

Well Congrads

Good luck on finding the job that you want to do out there;  be persistant  don't be afraid to move or take a lesser job to start out your career even if it's not exactly where you want to end up.  One thing you will need no matter what field you're in is experience working somewhere whether related or not.  Except fast food I not sure how much running a till or flipping burgers helps in the finance field or any other then to say you worked and did'nt get fired, showed up on time etc.

Good luck once again!!

Annoying things about College

I guess i should have mentioned that I graduate May 10th of this year, LOL !

I plan on sticking it out, thats for sure !

I was just in the middle of writing a 20 page finance paper, that only one of the three teachers make you write, so I decided to vent on all the things that annoy me about college.

I just can't wait to be done, 5 more weeks, finals, and hello real world !


Great reply by the way !

Annoying things about College


Unfortunately you are right!!  The bad news is that I shared your opion almost point by point  15 or so years ago!!  So, I went and got a 2 year degree after spending one year in the SCAM that is College no arguement from me!! 

Now, this is not a poor me story by any means, but without that BA you will be lucky to get more than 40k to 55k depending on where you choose to work and live.  I have my second NEW house a family and the American Dream  so to speak no Porche which was one of my High School goals because I don' have that piece of paper saying BA!! 

If you are not lucky enough to become a business owner and obviously you have to succeed in that business I would have to tell you to STICK it out and put up with the BS and take as many easy teachers as you hear of and play that Campus's game.  In fact I suggest you learn and find out from as many of your peers the available short cuts at your finger tips and try to exploit any loop holes to your advantage.  It's TIme to go on Offence!! 

If you really want that corner office at some point  and 70k or more when you are my age and a VP or Jr. partner tag you will need a 4 yr degree or more.  Take the time NOW!!

When I hear another person tell me that "YOUR A SMART GUY" where did you go to school and have to give the 2yr response and then see the look of 'confusion' or  'too bad no 4yr can't hire you'  face or 'well I can't hang with you'  that's when I want ONLY one wish and that would be to go back and BEAT the Profs. and the TA's who don't speak good English at the GAME of  COLLEGE that I gave up on in the 3rd year/QUARTER because I was in to big of hurry to make money  and work my way UP to the TOP because I AM A SMART GUY.

Just  because you are bright or smart or talented doesn't mean you will reach your LOFTY goals because there is always a popular bias made by other people who do the hiring that you need a BA or BS to start otherwise you are the IDIOT in THEIR world.

I am an IDIOT however this IDIOT married an AWESOME girl who doesn't need a Porsche just a nice 2000 sq ft home that is hers to make however she wants it to be.


Don't get upset and leave COLLEGE because of the BS without taking this little piece of my history into consideration.

Every action has an equal and opposite re-action.  I know the ACTION I wish I would have choosen!!

Ah, welcome to life young jedi.  Guess what, things don't change once you get a job.  Well, maybe the parking situation might.
