post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm going to college part time and I planned on just taking English Comp I for next semester, which is a 4 credit hour course. However, I just learned today that I cannot fall below 6 hours or I will have to start repaying my loans cannot afford that at this point in time, so I am forced to pick another class I picked the lesser of 2 evils (IMO) and went with Principles of Macroeconomics over College Algebra. As some of you know I really struggled with Microeconomics this last semster, but I have been told Macro is easier, I can only hope!!

I'll save the big, bad College Algebra for the Fall along with English Comp II

As a former English Minor I'll be happy to help you if you need me. I never had to take Marco, but I understand that it's not that bad.

I really enjoyed macroeconomics in college, i.e., I found it much more interesting than microeconomics. Good luck with it!

Thanks Heather! I was the proud recipient of a D after the second exam in Micro and had a small panic attack....somehow I ended up with a final grade of a B-! Might have had something to do with the group final I think the teacher was as desperate for everyone to pass as the students were

I only have to take Micro and Macro cause I'm a business major with ulterior motives I really don't like business too much, can't wait til I take Accounting

I always liked English so I am looking forward to that at least! If there's anything I can do it's write

Accounting was a piece of cake for me compared to Economics. I just found economics boring and had a bad professor.

I made it though 3 semesters of Calculus, Differential Equations and 2 semesters of Discrete Mathematics before I ran screaming. I didn't have to take College algebra. I had that one covered.

Oh good Lord, you can tell I've never been to college! Although I took Algebra and Trig/Calculus in highschool, I have no idea what you guys are talking about! GoodLuck Katie!

Accounting might not be bad, I like putting everything in order so Accting might appeal to me in that sense

I had a bad prof for Micro, almost 2/3rds of the class dropped! Econ was really hard for me to grasp the concept for some reason

Thanks Susie! I took those in high school too, but it's more "teacher taught" in HS than college is

Same here //// I saw the economics word and ran for cover .... but I did get a dose of each in Goverment and Macro was so much easier
post #17 of 26
Good luck, Katie!

I loved English comp 1 and 2 and aced them both. I remember writing an essay that my comp 1 professor said was publishable, which made me very happy.

well if it helps, the second one does make more sense.
i would love to help, i am good at idea and such.

errr, but i would not ask me to write your papers ehhee.

I would have signed up for a language course instead of something to do with economics. Languages come in really handy and can give you an edge when it comes to job hunting.

Thanks Bryan! Publishable? Good show! I was on the Power of the Pen team in middle school, so I'm hoping some of that comes back to me!

Unfortunately language is not part of the business program and my company would definitely not pay for that. I used to want to be certified bi-lingual in Spanish, but that was when I wanted to be a teacher I took 3 years in High school

The reason I'm going back to school is not so much to get a job, more to cure the atrophy of the brain I seem to have lately. Nothing like getting those cells firing again This is more to get my degree so that when I reach 30 years with my current company I can go back to work doing something that I actually want to- counseling kids or even teaching. I'll only be 52 when I retire so I figure I got a good 20 years of work left in me

Accounting is kicking my behind.

Of Macro & Micro....Macro was harder because I fell asleep in class more.
post #24 of 26
I was also an English major at one time..lol..than I switched to Computer Science. Then I graduated and never used my degree past my first year as an entry level programmer. If you need help with the English class, I would be glad to help out any way I could.

It's been a long time (I graduated from college in 1979), but I believe at least one economics course was a GER, although I majored in foreign languages. Microeconomics fulfilled the requirement, and macroeconomics was just an elective, but I really enjoyed it, and believe that I read the business section of the newspaper simply because of that course. I hadn't planned on teaching translating German to English business news at that time.
