I've actually advised college freshmen, both incoming and ongoing.

I've run into plenty of really bright students who have come in with loads of community college credits, and it's set them really well along their career path.

Regardless of what major you take, you're going to need certain subjects as part of your General Education curriculum; math, lab science, history, social science, humanities, etc. Honestly, you can fill these pretty cheaply at the local CC, and they transfer pretty much anywhere.

Well, I wasn't going to do it, but thank you to Kicksave for a chance to shill :D

Actually, if you're interested in aviation, WVU actually does have a Top 50-ranked aerospace engineering program, along with a 5-year program that leads to a dual degree in aerospace and mechanical engineering! All at a price that isn't far off what you'd pay at an in-state university.

So, thank you Kicksave! ;D

Honestly, I'm 25, been working a 'real-job' I got with my 4 year degree for almost 3 years now, and still have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life. It sure ain't what I'm doing now......but then things like financial security and not knowing where to go from here get in the way.

If I lived in WVU, I'd want an aerospace degree so I can build myself an aircraft and get the $&*# out.

That last post disappeared because I equated the state of West Virginia with WVU.

So, I apologize for ever suggesting that West Virginia University would be a worthwhile destination for anyone, simply because it is physically impossible for any WVU graduate to ever be successful.

You should consider Robert Morris University, despite their lack of an engineering department, because they are a world-class research university.

Honestly, it doesn't really matter a whole lot where you get your bachelor's degree...good people will find good jobs.

However, if you want the truth...it matters a lot where your PhD comes from with regards to what kind of academic job you will get. Hence, you've figured out my weak underbelly. Please feel free to use it however you see fit!

Come to Mohawk for Radio Broadcasting, it's incredibly fun, and costs only ~1.6k a semester.

I was looking back through my old posts and I found this thread I started...

Ah the memories...

:lol:

Just wanted to say, I'm all good... 2 years later (almost 3).


I think maybe this thread was pretty influential.
