How many hours of classes should I take per semester?

I am working on enrolling, and I will be a full-time student. I want to take as many gen-ed classes as I can to get them out of the way, but how many hours would you recommend I take? I won't be living on campus, so I don't want to overload on classes, but I would like to get classes done. #student-counseling #college-admission #college-admissions #college-advice

How much does the parental contribution increase for the colleges I'll mention if I try to pay it all off by scholarships?

I heard from the Standford admission office that if you try to pay off all the parental contribution through scholarships, they reduce your need based financial aid and increase your parental contribution. How much do they increase it by? Do they also do this for MIT, UCSD, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Caltech, University of Chicago, and University of Nevada? #financial-planning #admissions-counseling #college-admission

Can someone with Social Anxiety be discriminated against when applying for college or a job; and what can I do to limit this?

I am a high school junior with good grades, an above average ACT score, and am an overall well rounded student. However, I have Social Anxiety and am currently considering a career in veterinary medicine as a vet or something similar. I don't talk well with people but am an actress, and am sure the next few years of higher education will get me ready to communicate better with people. I realize LEGALLY they can't drop you for the illness alone, but I'm scared I would be judged by label and not what I can do nor who I am. #career #college-admissions #job-market #college-admission #mental-illness
