Well I can't speak for every college here in America, but yes I do a lot with my major I am studying, but it is difficult and can be time consuming. My best friend (who is an Accounting major) has a lot of tests and quizzes she has to study for. She also has a lot of group projects she needs to work on. It is more difficult than middle/high school because it is not just busy work and tests anymore. College prepares you for the real world, high school does not. Despite what teachers say in high school, it does not prepare you for the real world at all, because it is a lot different than college/real world.YamiHoshi.nl said:Are colleges really that different in America?
College is a lot easier for me than Middle School was, because I only study on stuff I want to study at.
Ah, dorms. I've been to Princeton, and apparently their dorms are "large." This scares me... I'm kind of clausterphobic. I'm going to rent a house first chance I get.NintendoQueen said:THIS!!'3K said:It's a lot of damn work, especially if you're dealing with a job and other personal stuff.
Yes it is a lot more work than high school/middle school. Depending on your major, you will have more projects and reading. Also, there isn't much busy work in the classroom as much as middle/high school. And if you do have a job, it is a lot harder to get things done...
I'm majoring in Early Childhood Education and we do A TON of projects and activities. Like many of you know, I just got done with my flannel board project.
However, the plus side is that it CAN be more fun because you meet SO MANY new people I like the people I met in college so much better than those I met in high school and middle school :P
Also, living in a dorm is a totally new experience within itself. I still live at home and I commute to school ( I go to a community college version of Purdue University). My best friend goes to Loyola University in Chicago and she lives in a dorm. Let's just say that dorm life is for some and not for others.
So does my sister... unfortunately, I fail to see how the devil can be adorable. Seriously, some kids can be very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very annoying.NintendoQueen said:

So you have a ways to go! It really is never too late to start thinking about college. You don't have to necessarily have EVERYTHING planned out, but it's nice to see you asking about college at such a young ageNew Super Mario said:
Yeah, there's so many of choices to choose. I want to do something with Video Games or Technology, but I don't know what my options would be for that. I remember back in second and third grade I wanted to be an Author and I kept little journals called "Jacob's Storys" - with a ys. I sometimes look back at those and laugh at what I wrote about and how I wroteNintendoQueen said:So you have a ways to go! It really is never too late to start thinking about college.

I remember some of them. My sister always wrote about our dogs going on adventures and I remember on of our dogs (she's not alive anymore, and she was a dachshund mix) lost her dorito bag in Antarctica and she went after it and fell in the ice for it.

I have books and such I made when I was young, and I laugh now, but they were things I was proud of
