    Sorry about the stereotype comment, I didn't really mean to say I don't believe in stereotypes. Because I really, actually do.

    I guess I more wanted to say closed minded. Personally, if I went to school with a bunch of pricks, I would form my own group of friends, and have a ton of fun pissing off the assholes and playing pranks on them.

    FTR, I have a friend who goes to a relatively cheap college, and people are STILL assholes. A lot of them, especially the girls.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Kyuuei is right (again). Get an A.A. (Associate in Arts) or A.S. (Associates in Science) degree from a community college ANYWHERE. Why?

    Because the 60 semester hours of credits you get in an AA or AS program apply to ANY 4-YEAR B.A. or B.S. degree (Business, Engineering, Biology, Psychology, etc.) so long as your AA/AS is from an accredited university.

    So, you won't lose any of your first two years of college, no matter what. If you start out as a biology major and then change your major to management information systems (like I did) then you will lose lots of credit hours.

    Also, don't fuck around, take some math courses! Employers value quantitative skills in this job market. The most sought after undergraduates in the job market are S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors. I heard this first hand from a very high ranking sales rep that works for Microsoft, and he is heavy into recruiting stats.

    Fuck private schools.

    You're not a socially incapable elitist prick.

    You're a man of the people, so go to a public university that has good programs in your field of interest, and get a great education for a reasonable price.

    IMPORTANT LOOPHOLE regarding OUT-OF-STATE TUITION!!!
    In Florida, you will NEVER get in-state tuition if you move here and enroll at a state university within one-year of getting your FL driver's license. Why do I know this? It happened to me. The registrars said this is a "protective measure" to protect Florida taxpayers for footing the bill for thousands of out of state college students wanting to come here to "study in the sun."

    BUT - if you move here, get your driver's license, rent an apartment or get your name on a utility statement, etc., and work for a year (>365 days from your FL license issuance date) then you can enroll in ANY state university and pay onlt IN-STATE tuition.

    Here's the difference:

    FROM:

    Undergraduate Costs 2010-2011
    Estimated costs cover two semesters
    (15 hours per semester)

    Florida Residents Non-Florida Residents
    Tuition/Fees
    $ 5,238................$ 19,682

    On-Campus Housing
    5,280.......................5,280

    Food (Meal Plan)
    3,900.....................3,900

    Books/Supplies
    1,000.......................1,000

    SUBTOTAL
    $ 15,418................$ 29,862

    Health Insurance*
    1,415......................1,415

    TOTAL
    $ 16,833.................$ 31,277

    * FSU has a mandatory health insurance policy for new students admitted to the University. Costs of meeting this requirement will be included in financial aid considerations. Students who currently have health insurance may show proof of comparable coverage and may not be required to purchase the University policy. Refer to Welcome to Thagard Student Health Center for additional information.

    Good luck, Bro!

    Fair enough, Antimony.

    LOL. Assholes are unavoidable anywhere you go. But there's a higher percentage of them, the "better" and more private the school is.

    Alright, that makes sense. A lot, actually.

    I really need to figure out a damn school. Maybe I will mark off Boston College.

    bolded= That makes me even more motivated and proud to go to a Public University. I was trying to say that earlier, but it wasn't as clear as you put it. Halla gets it.

    And coincidentally, I am applying to Santa Fe. You should be familiar, halla? Not a CC anymore, but still. I'd probably do what most other students do and transfer to the U. But that's my second plan. My first plan in the U of Minnesota.

    Antimony- It's cool, don't worry about the stereotyping thing. Truth is, you'll find a lot of people you don't like no matter what college you go to. But I think Halla's spot on with what he's saying.

    we're here to give you information, not influence your decisions. don't worry! you do what makes you happy and if you feel like saying "fuck you guys, I'll do what I want" then I respect that.

    Don't get discouraged, get smart, aware, and confident. Take the information you're getting objectively. You're a P!
