Tuesday, your lucky, I started school 2 weeks ago and have already wrote 2 papers for my English class.:thumbup:

Not bad, what is your major?

68Impala 08-27-2004 10:58 PM

Holy crap on a stick!
I got off way easy then...

-"the Power Game" - Political Science class dedicated to giving students control over a Global government. From law to natural resources, etc...we must build (in theory) a central government that rules Earth.

-"Business Models for Technology" BUS 254 - Dry, boring, methodical business plans for development of Tech co's.

-Jazz Combo - a return favorite, trumpet player for the PSU jazz band. not the best group, but hey...

-"Politics in the World Arena" - Focuses on UN and how it maintains control over group nations. A strong emphasis on the U.S. decision to go to war will be argued.

-"Golf" - self explanatory

Oh yeah - Law I come...
BTW GhettoJet - Penn State Dickinson School of Law is one of my top choices for an east coast Law program...

Good to see you take PolySci class - you'll love it.

Ghetto Jet 08-27-2004 11:24 PM

I'm a psychology major at the moment wersh.

I might try to switch that math to a Sociology or something law related.

68Impala 08-27-2004 11:45 PM

Sociology is a great program anywhere...
If you enjoy psychology, you would like sociology.

Are you a freshman this year or sophomore? If you're a freshman - the best advice I can give would be to try a bunch of different classes before even beginning to choose a major.

Ghetto Jet 08-27-2004 11:53 PM

I'm a freshmen. My major is not a definite, they just have me down as a Psychology major. I took a year of Psychology and Sociology in high school and loved it, hopefully I'll like it just as much in college. 68, don't you go to PSU?

68Impala 08-28-2004 12:34 AM

yeah, I go to PSU, but PSU as in P ortland State Univeristy

It's one of those sub-par state commuter schools built into the downtown of urban metro areas... I like it for the city life and the ability to access people in the career field I plan on following...

At the end of the year I hope to be either applying to California Polytechnic (CalPoly), Willamette University (in Salem, OR), or University of Nevada - Las Vegas (UNLV) as a transfer student.

Penn State has one hell of a law school! If I go to the East Coast for my J.D., it will be at Penn.

Wednesday, I am headed to L.A. to visit my friend and check out CalPoly, UCSB (UC Santa Barbara), UCLA (UC Los Angeles), and SDSU (San Diego State U.)

Good luck with school Jet - I have to wait until Sept. 27th to start...

My little bro is going is starting in psych as a base for physical therapy, and I have a bud who graduated with a sociology degree and is doing ok as well. Either is a decent major. Good luck with classes and college in general. You have a long strange road ahead of you.:thumbup:

killerformula 08-30-2004 02:25 PM

if you're dead set on doing a liberal arts degree, and at that in social science, do yourself a favor and get an Econ degree, or dual major in something that sells...

Speaking from experience here...

BTW I think soc and psych are pretty dissimilar programs...

Thats why I would want to take them.

killerformula 08-30-2004 03:35 PM

? because they're not like one another?

I don't get it...


Ghetto Jet 08-30-2004 03:50 PM

Try a variety of courses, see what I like better.
