How did you transition from being a part-time college student to attending full-time?

I'm going to be starting college in the spring semester, so in the mean time I'm taking a chemistry class and working. I'm looking forward to starting school, but I'm interested to know how others handled this transition!

What was it like to go into nursing after graduating with a bachelor's degree in a related field?

When I applied for college I wasn't sure what I wanted to do within the medical field, so I applied as a biology major and am currently in a general studies program. I still plan on majoring in biology, but I'm also seriously thinking about going into nursing after. I know there are accelerated...

What are some realistic jobs to look for as a full-time student?

I'm going to school in Boston for the upcoming school year, and even though I didn't qualify for a work study, I'm going to need to work during the school year to be able to make it through college without excessive amounts of debt. I don't want to sacrifice all of my time outside of classes to...

How did you feel about starting college in the spring semester?

I got into and decided on my first choice school, but I got into a program where you start in January and then catch-up to everyone during a summer semester abroad. I'm really excited about all of that, but now that the summer is almost over and most of my friends are gearing up to go away and...

How much does where you went to college help, or potentially hurt, getting a job?

Lately I've been reading a lot of "it doesn't really matter where you went to college after you get your first job" kind of things and "the cheapest school is the best option" answers from around the internet. Granted, these aren't necessarily from reputable sources and everyone's experiences...

How do you decide when you want your job to be your career?

I'm going into college and I know that I want to major in biology, but I'm not too sure beyond that. I want to be able to try out different things through internships and maybe part time jobs in school and during grad school after that, but I don't think that even in five or six years from now...

How does working long hours affect your relationships, hobbies, and interests?

I'd like to direct this question mainly to those in the medical field because that is what I'm looking to go into, but any insights are greatly appreciated! Even as a high school student I've had to put some of hobbies and interests on the back burner because of all of the school work and...

Is joining honor societies (the kind you have to pay for) worth it in college?

I'm not really sure how honor societies work in college to begin with, but I recently received an email about being accepted to one. I looked into it, found it to be real, and logged into the website. After this, though, I found that I would have to pay ($100/year) to be a member and be able to...
