How do you like NE? I was super impressed by their co-op program when I visited. Looks like you'll have your hands / head full with that course load too

I'm starting to regret never applying there. It never really interested me until after the deadline. Stanford didn't appeal to me because of its distance from home either. Considering I got the maximum merit awards from all colleges I applied to, I guess I would have had a shot.

 

My wallet would have hurt a lot for it though. IIRC they don't hand out merit scholarships and I can't get need-based.

Its pretty fun so far. The next few years are going to be brutal though. Co-op was a major reason for my choice. I was stuck between Wentworth and here, but the final decider was the fact that Wentworth was FAR too ghetto for me. I felt like I was going to get stabbed just walking around the campus. Odd how different it is here a couple hundred feet down the street.

I am in my second year here, living in the good 'ol Colony Apartments...  They are actually pretty nice (surprisingly).

Indeed. RIT is tough as hell, but you do come out well prepared, it seems. What year are you in?

Despite the endowment, the financial aid is not nearly as good as it should be here. And you're right that there's no merit-based aid. Arg.

I know a bunch of people who have done super well for themselves with the co-op program, it's a pretty sweet opportunity. Good luck with that on top of your 1000 majors/minors/concentrations/etc :D

Freshman at American University in DC here...I've actually seen an AD700, SR60, HD25 SP, and some Wesc of which I don't know. But that is far outweighed by the countless number of skullcandy here.

 

And unlike most of you, I intend to be a political science major

The co-op is also the reason I chose RIT. That and they offered the highest of all the scholarships offered by schools I applied to. But it's still a measly $13,500 a year (They have since raised the maximum to $15,000 )

I'm a senior at Morehead State University majoring in English Education. We're sort of outcast from both the Education department and the English department, haha. We're a strange breed; we're too rigid and academic for the Creative Writing majors but too "deep" for the Special Education majors and K-5 ed. majors.

 

The program gets tough quick, especially once you hit your sophomore year; at that point you're taking the developmental psychology/pedagogy courses as well as upper-division literature. But then again, our university is supposed to have a very good Ed. department, so maybe that's why it's so rigorous. After this semester I have a classroom management course to take and some literature electives to finish up before I do my student teaching next fall. Kinda scary to think about, haha.

 

The classes I'm taking this semester are about to do me in: I have Sociolinguistics (bleh) and Educational Technology (barf) online, as well as two pedagogy classes and my senior Capstone course. But if I can make it past this semester, things next semester will be smooth sailing (hopefully).

When you guys give an oral speech presentation, how do you do it? I keep losing my train of thought or my mind goes blank all of a sudden. Any advice?

Rehearse it a lot is a very good idea. Also have an outline of the major ideas in a card in your pocket just in case (and try to memorize it perfectly also), and also think that you are telling it to your best buddies while drinking beers, just talk about it like you normally do.

 

Also I can't stress enough knowing the subject as good as you possibly can, so no matter what happens you can adapt or improvise if there is the need like questions and answers. Besides being really are sure about your knowledge of what you are presenting boosts your confidence quite a bit.

I've decided to major in entrepreneurship. However, what companies would offer internships for entrepreneurship majors? Most importantly, are there even companies who would want to hire entrepreneurs? Even though I'm not planning on applying for any jobs after graduating (starting my own business rather), I must do internship in order to graduate (plus the experience will help me become more knowledgeable in the work force). I don't know what the demand is for entrepreneurs, but I'm guessing little?

I get very nervous in situations like those and can't articulate my thoughts as I speak. My doctor told me of a drug and it works ok.

How does one major in entrepreneurship...? Isn't that something that someone usually just does?
