    SUF, what's the route you're taking?

    Have you plotted out where each CFA is along the way?

    I don't really think post secondary ed was for me so I was just dropped in to the party, which also might be why a lot of people go

    but if you google worst colleges in the USA and look at the hits they tell you how much 4 yrs will cost , what people who go will make in the job market after school for a return on investment on that tuition money and how many people actualy finish the program, the completion figures are almost all really low, so where did these people go and a lot of why questions for me ?

    I got that advice in juco. Had a young, fired up Geography prof say very emphatically, "The key to success in college is NEVER arbitrarily miss a class!" So true. I had many classes where you didn't even need the textbooks. Just go to every class and take copious notes. If you think about it, if you were a prof, wouldn't you make sure and lecture on the stuff you thought was important? And then would you test on that same shit? It's the key, man.

    I've counseled my kids that there is an additional important step - PAY ATTENTION. Don't sit in the back of class and fuck about on your phone. Go to every class and pay attention.

    So far... so good...

    David Chang just opened up Fuku here in town, maybe I'll give that a go.

    I rarely took notes in college. Listened to the instructor, and if I needed notes I would borrow them from the kids who were too busy taking notes to listen to what the instructor was saying.

    This seems to be a question journalists are taking up, now that people are headed back to school and schools are realigning themselves after taking advantage of some early retirements and so on to revamp their programs--

    The two articles come at the question from different angles, but embedded in each is the idea that you can't prescribe your college experience the way some here would have it (take only classes that will translate into money later, forget majoring in worthless things, seek out engineering and IT), and emphasizing that people figure things out through serendipity, failure, and maturation.

    Yes, go to class, pay attention, ski a lot, and ignore anyone who tells you there should be a guaranteed return on your investment.

    One other thing - biggest thing you can do to keep your grades up? Simple. Attend every class.

    Sounds stupid and obvious. It's not.

    College

    Prepare for comments about your accent. You have one, even if you think you don’t. Skip the drinking, sure, but don’t skip the parties. Focus all that sober energy on getting laid, a lot.

    College was pretty hard the first time out of high school. High school was easy, which meant I didn’t really understand how to manage my time and be a self directed worker.

    Second time was easy. Work, but easy.

    If you really want to succeed and be super efficient with your time, consider reading some Cal Newport and treating college like a job. You can realistically “work” 8-5 and never pull an all nighter and rarely work a Saturday if you do it right.

    As others have said, attend class and do the homework, the professor is telegraphing what they are going to test on. Figure out how you learn best, for me it was reading the text book and using the lecture to get clarity.

    Figure out how to disconnect from social media.

    I confess, I have only gone to a Bojangles once, and it was definitely at a ‘did not have their shit together’ establishment. The chicken was soggy, and the biscuits were hockey pucks.
    I will try again when I can.
    And I am honored by the ‘lettuce burrito’ reference,

    Freshman year in college (on EC) one of my friends lived in a quad with 3 other dudes. One of the guys was dating this girl from Billings, MT. Not sure how she ended up on EC, but anyway every time they had sex, she would scream like a banshee. We nicknamed her the Montana screamer. One night someone adjacent to their quad called campus security and reported a girl was screaming. Paul Blart the mall cop showed up and some confusion and hilarity ensued while things got straightened out.

    My only impression of MT girls is based on this.

    1. Get and stay organized. Get help with that if needed. It is hard to recover once you get behind. Someone made a comment about their daughter making a calendar of scheduling and due dates. If you can get those in advance that is a great idea.
    2. Look at lecture material ahead of time even if it's just a glance.
    3. The message in the below video is a strong argument for attending lecture. Surround yourself with what you are learning.

    yeah i thot the ROI figures on all those low end colleges were kind of brutal, so should they bring up the standards or should people go elswhere after reading those articals, so at what point should post sec education should pay off somehow ? ?

    and we do need artists/ poets creativity even tho I don't really have any myself,

    I often ask mouth breathing crayon eating types how much art goes into getting that bottle of macro swill to costco so you can buy it ?

    ... graphic artists/ add writers/ people to make the commercials ect etc

    College

    Bojangles is more miss than hit these days. Popeyes is at least consistently mediocre. The time required to find the good Bojangles would be better spent finding the local fried chicken place that’s in every southern town, likely in the back of a little country gas station.

    How did they write down what the instructor said if they weren't listening?
