Professor SIR Lloyd’s Answer
What aspect of college is the most challenging?
As a student in 11th grade, I am currently thinking about my future and what path to take (Colleges). I have a very high GPA, and impressive leadership resume. I take education very seriously and often stress about college and what it will be like. Financially, socially, academically etc… what is one of the greatest challenges an individual may face in that special transition period in life/towards finding a career (College).
What advice do you wish you would have been given at a younger age?
The advice I wish someone had shared with me was the following unfortunately I did not travel this positive course in academia during the 1987 I thought I was gonna become another Russell Simmons but that didnt happen and I had a rough hard negative road to trod to get to where I am now and I do not have my PHD Degree at all from and elite Ivy League Institution which is my fault. But please really read my answer to you it will change your life positively.
Yes I always advise that any one moving to higher education academia that it is good to be very versatile in your Academia Institutions - If you are in High School enroll in a neighborhood community college now while in High School to begin to receive college credits while in high school. Most community colleges will allow you to take courses online 1 at a time.Once you graduated high school then continue and receive your AA degree graduate you will be at age 20 yrs. old with your 1st degree then transfer out of state to a HBCU for your last 2 yrs. receive your Bachelors Degree graduate you will be 23-24 yrs. old with 2 degrees and then apply to a main stream triple AAA seed university and transfer such as Cal tech, New York Univ,University of NC Chapel Hill to receive your Masters Degree and after graduating you will be around age 28 yrs. old then you want to apply for your Doctoral Studies at and Ivy League University such as Brown Univ., Univ. of Penn., Cornell U., Dartmouth U., Yale or Harvard this allows for you to have a diverse academic curricula vitae' at 29 years old with your PHD. and your last phase of academia is your Post Doctoral you would like to be a principle Investigator for such Institutions of research such as world renown Johns Hopkins University or Albert Einstein University and you want to complete 1 community service project overseas for 6 months or 1 year after your Post Doctoral at your leisure. 31 yrs old and ready for any PHD career with a salary of 100K to 150K a yr at 31 yrs old
