It seems college is just like high school, just teaching unnecessary things. I mean could you imagine how easy high school would have been if we just took core classes like math and science and english with no useless classes like PE or electives?
Of course college is all about that little piece of paper just like high school. Except now you get to focus on what you want, while wading through the BS.
Me I'm taking a different route by getting my IT certifications and then getting into the industry, that way if they want me to go to college they'll send me and pay for it (yes they do that :D) just for those classes and none of the crud on the side.
All I can say is good luck to you in college, don't lose who you are in trying to accomplish! :)
Yea, Ohio is a little ridiculous on what they force you to take. You have to take a Science refresher and a Basic Math refresher to qualify for most of your undergrad degrees. The Math was bogus too until we got to the actual business math. We had to "relearn" basic math (multiplication, division...). and we even had to do lessons on decimals, as in; ones, tens, hundreds.
My husband is going to do what you are doing though. He is going to start with certifications but his work will pay for him to go to college after he gets them. It's a smart route. Sometimes I wish I was more technical and not so interested in Business but it's what I love *sigh*. The most technology you get in an undergrad degree is a decent computer course and learning about the Microsoft products like Word and PowerPoint. I am hoping that my BA will not be so Elementry as in grade school.
Ohio's college rules are making us look like idiots. I guess our state ranks pretty low in Math and Science to force it on grown people.
My new rant-My mother got me all worked up about this wind system that is supposed to hit tomorrow. I look on the weather channel and it says sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles an hour with possible gusts to 50. After that bad wind storm that had 80 mile an hour winds that isn't so bad. And my husband wonders why I hate storms. My mother, but I love her anyways.
