    Uh. OK. So serious time here:

    That little caveat of "You have to make sure you can transfer the credits" is kind of a huge fucking caveat.

    I don't know when the last time you were in school, but that has become harder than your dick at a toddler's birthday party. These days, if you don't want to spend hours and hours on the phone pleading and offering blow jobs to acceptance offices, you choose a community college that works in conjunction with a certain university that you eventually plan on going to. This is a lot harder than it sounds though because if you don't live near a college that works with the place you want to eventually go to then your chances of getting into that school are severely diminished. No longer are the days of getting a 2 year from city college and then applying everywhere.

    Then there's the problem of, whoops, the university your city college works with didn't accept you and the other universities won't accept half your credits and your options are to wait until the next round of sign ups or taking more classes for another university all together.

    This is true, I was going to take a few classes in a different community college district when I moved to find out that even though both districts where part of the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program, and accredited through the same people wouldn't transfer to each other with out a major hassle.

    For those of you unaware of TAG its a program is here.

    I just plus repped you and I hate myself for it.

    But the fact is Sirc is giving real advice here.

    Don't give advice to people that's severely outdated or unsubstantiated. You made a notion that was based on an anecdote rather than what the current regulations and facts are. Imagine if he just took your word for it.

    That's fucked up dude.

    One thing to do, which I did, is go to the university and sit down with their Academic Counselor. Not for career advice, but degree progress advising. You find the areas you want to study and get them to show you which community college credits they will accept. I did it for free because they are bored in the middle of the semester.

    Even when this is done, expect the goal posts to be moved and requirements to suddenly change. If you want the degree, the colleges will make you work for it.

    The advice I gave was niether. Back up your accusation or STFU Cris.

    Actually **** bird, I made a reccomendation from personal experience (some of it quite recent) and included the caveat so itwasntme would at least be aware of a potential pitfall. Which basically blows your "argument" apart.

    Yeah, he'd be having this same conversation with a college counselor who would tell him which credits are transferable and where. They would even counsel him (crazy, I know!) on the best strategy to meet his goals. Can you imagine that?!?!!?

    itwasntme's potential success and fulfillment is fucked up? Only to a hatefull **** bird like you Sirc.

    You know, it says a lot about your own reasoning abilities when you think others incapable of simple deduction, I.E. "This guy said I need to look into transfering credits (if I can), I should probably ask the admissions office about that."

    If this simple conclusion is beyond your comprehension you are nowhere near a normal persons level of thinking. It's proably good that you've found a niche messing up computers for a living. You'd fall appart having to keep up with real humans.

    We will disagree. Just stay on top of things.
