I can't believe I'm paying for this
    #4664342 - 09/15/05 12:17 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

College.

My literature courses are like history courses (cakewalk). The analytical portion of them was completed in high school and I still remember all of it.

In my psych course we get handed the notes for the chapter and the prof makes the tests off the notes he gives us. In sociology, we're allowed a sheet of paper to take into tests. She discusses the reading (about 20 min) then we're dismissed half an hour early.

I know I shouldn't be bitching that they're easy, but I'm hardly learning anything. I'm doing the reading, attending class, yadda yadda. Bottom line, I took harder classes in high school.

I'm a junior and taking all these filler courses is making me sick. They're just sucking up $$$. I would love it if I was being challenged or if I could skip this crap and just take the critical courses for my degree.. I would have been done by now.

I'd say that's plenty to bitch about. Classes should be appropriately challenging and engaging. Sorry to hear about how you're being ripped off.

Are these gen-ed (101) classes? If so, that's probably why they're so easy. Granted, I've never taken a class as easy as you mentioned.

I really should have taken my general education courses early on. I loved taking 300's and 400's. If it was an A, it was a hard earned A, if it was a B, it was "Damn I should have studied harder".

I remember my advisor saying "Save them for last so when you're nearing the end it'll be easy." Well, it's TOO fucking easy; it's making me not want to attend anymore. I'm not giving up this late in the game, but I sure as hell feel that way.

Mantis; the psych and sociology are intros (101 and 110) and the lits are 230 and 241.

I'm in a gen ed with all freshman (I'm a junior).  These fucking kids will not shut up, and have no respect for the teacher.  The other day she completely bugged out and threatened to kick the next person talking out for the year, which shut the bastards up for a while.

The class does suck, but you're fucking paying almost 30 grand a year for this shit!  Just shut up for two hours!  Ahh ok I'm done with this rant  :enraged:

They do, I can't wait till this class is over, it's really bad.

One kid got up to go to the bathroom after she flipped on us, and paused by the blackboard and loudly announced to the teacher that he was "Goin' to take a shit" and slammed the door. Which looking back on it was funny, but I felt bad for the teacher at that point

Welcome to college.  Do you know how many fucking worthless classes I had to take that had absolutely no bearing on my degree program?  I had to take an art history class, a women's studies class ( :crazy: ), and a worthless English class just to name a few.

Be glad that these classes are easy.  It is tolerable taking classes that you don't like if they are easy.  Taking classes that you don't like and that are hard is not fun or tolerable.

I dropped out before finishing my degree.  I do feel like somewhat of a loser in comparison to my parents (my dad was highly skilled and successful in his field and my mom has three degrees), but I don't have the urge to go back.  If I do go back to school I think I would go to a technical school.  You don't have to go through the bullshit like you do in college.  You just get right to what you want to study and you are done relatively quickly.
