So, I'm about to finish my first semester at community college and I've got d's and f's. I really hate the place and I hate taking classes like world civ and psychology instead of just the classes I need for electrical engineering.

Should I give up on the college and look elsewhere? Like ECPI or a company that trains electrical engineers to work for them?
>>
Youre in a fucking loser college and yet out of all the fucking losers there you are an even bigger fucking loser faggot.

So I guess you are the Loser of all the losers.

If you cant pass gen. eds. like psyc and world civ then good luck becoming a goddamn engineer,
you piss fuck
>>
This aint Hogwarts bitch
>>
If you are struggling to get d's in a fucking psychology 101 class at community college, then you sure as hell will not be able to pass a single electrical engineering course. You should just give up college and look at getting a job in fast food.
>>
Yeah OP. You must be full retard. I'm at a university getting my BS, decent GPA. Barely tried, got a business degree waiting for me in 3 months. I'm retarded.. so you must be like.. full retard. You must be.
>>
>>584032042
> d's and f's

you need to switch to a liberal arts major asap
>>
Well, for one all the shit for psychology was on an online program that I couldn't access on my computer. I not really interested in it or world civ. I'm doing fine in math. Besides Eng. Comp.1 it's the only one I'm doing good in.

Why the fuck would I need history for electrical engineering? I can understand taking public speaking but still.
I could've done better but I wasn't organized and I wasn't very interested in anything besides what I need for EE.
>>
If your failing community college classes you must be either a) skipping class and not doing your assignments, or b) just a plain fucking retard.

This is why intro classes are challenging. To weed out shitty students like you.

The best way to put it, OP, is that one day your young mind will understand. Some catch on faster some don't. There's a point to the pointless shit. Straight up. Think about it. Just do it. Trust me. If you need it for your degree, why would you have such a piss attitude about classes you need? You think your so smart that you can de idea what classes people take? Didn't think so.
>>
>>584033432
This is good advice OP. Just don't be a fuckboy.
>>
It doesn't matter if you are interested in them or not. These gen ed classes are on much more simple material, and designed to be more simple in order for you to get used to the college environment. A history and psychology class is just memorizing basic information. An electrical engineering course will have you memorizing complex formulas and sequences and then have you apply them. If you can't memorize simple information, no program from any school would ever take you in.
>>
>>584033306
I'd rather learn about electronics and leave the history to the people who are interested.
>>
Haha those are not even the weed out classes. Physics, Chem and multivariable calc are usually. Also even if you skip you should do fine in those, you must be full retard get out and save yourself money you are not smart enough to make it.

you fucking pleb. you are too stupid to become an ee and you can't just be trained to become an engineer you need the rigorous undergrad program to think like an engineer.

what you are thinking is becoming a tech which you can with a hs degree, making a lot less, more hands on, less math intensive, which you might like.

you might also have the IQ needed for those jobs.

>>584032042
Go try a for-profit diploma mill if you want to overpay for a certificate of complete employers don't want. That mess isn't worth much when there's a glut of recent grads with degrees already that can't even break into their field of choice.

If you can't hack the bullshit on the distribution list, don't go to college. Psych and World Civ are gimmes -- show up to lectures and you're golden. But don't take those, take easier humanities like sociology or anthropology.

Want to play with live wires? Apprentice with an electrician. You'll always be in demand and make a decent living.

You're legit just a lazy fuck and if your motivation can't carry you through these easy B.S courses then your fucked.

Soon enough you will be an adult and realize you can't stomp your feet and cry because you can't get your way. I'm sorry if your uneducated worthless self believes gen eds are stupid but real EE professors with doctorate degrees see the value. Grow up or learn to say "Do you want Fries with that?"

>>584032042
OP I go to one of the top 10 schools in the nation for EE and I can confidently tell you that EE is not for you. I suggest you switch your major to another variation of electronics that's a bit more hands on. You don't seem to do well in lecture settings and there are a lot of lecture classes in EE.

A friend of mine is taking a version of an electronics course but it's mainly hands on and less lecture classes. So you'll be a step below an EE but I think it's better for you.

Also considering getting a certification as an electrician, I really really don't want to work alongside a dumb fuck like you who fails CC.
No offense bro.
>>
Well I'll probably just save up my money. Retake all my classes and see how it goes then. I'm pretty sure that I could be an EE. My dad is a mechanical engineer and after him drilling math into my head I've become good at it. Although I'm more hands on I can sit at a fucking desk and do math all day. I still think that going somewhere like ecip would be better.

OP,

I too hate college and have always hated school with a passion. I don't really think I'm that good at it. I usually get B's and C's and don't put much effort into it.

Unfortunately, if you don't get a degree, your options are extremely limited. Getting a degree in ANYTHING opens up so many jobs.

If you don't like school for the people aspect (like me), then I would really recommend an online college. Though most colleges would give you an "e-degree" (not recognized by some employers), some give you a legitimate college degree. Plus, with online schooling, you can spend more time getting a job, playing vidya, whatever and never have to leave you house. I'm taking classes through Oregon State and it's awesome

>Failing classes out community college.

You're either really fucking lazy or actually retarded in some shape or form.
You're probably one of those kids who doesn't do their work just to seem rebellious and then come to class acting all fucking obnoxious.
FYI, the kids that I knew were like that in high school are still in my hometown doing the same fucking shit they did as teenagers - drive around and smoke weed all fucking day until they had to go to their job at Taco Bell. Even after 4 years out of highschool.
Do your two years at community, get good grades (when you really think about it, cc is easy straight out of hs cause the workload isn't as tedious), then transfer to a UC far away, live out there doing college lyf (you wont regret it and since you're only there to finish up two years, it wont be as expensive) and then you can have a degree instead of working at Taco Bell or at a trade school telling yourself that you'll be better off this way.
>>
>>584036208
Please OP at least try to get into a real university before you lower your standards this far.
>>
>>584033504

Well there's your fucking problem. 12 credit hours is considered full time plus you were working. If you have a job, go down to 8 or 7 CH. That kind of schedule is retarded and you should feel bad for not knowing better in the first place.
>>
>>584036520
So you don't know how to read or know what an engineer is.

Hi OP, I'm not sure why everyone has to be so mean for the sake of being mean. I did poorly in my first semester of classes too, but I still managed to finish and land a really nice job. You just have to try harder to be quite honest. Try forming a study group with people, make friends with multiple people in all your classes, it really helps. Just remember there's always next semester!
>>
>>584037174
Well my counselor signed me up for that many hours and my hardass dad agreed with him.
>>
>>584037032
looks legit. I don't know anything about engineering or anything, but it looks like that's what you'd want. I would call a counselor and ask about the degree thing, like I said. Since it's really hard to get a legitimate degree from online courses.

you can usually find textbooks online pretty easily unless it's a really specific class or if it requires one of those stupid $100 passcode things just to open the book. Take the least amount of hours you can to start out (depending on financial aid) if you plan on having a job. If you'll be jobless, load up the courses.

Are you thinking of working while doing school if it's online?
>>
>>584036520
Have you actually looked at a legitimate engineering curriculum before? It's far from just labs and tinkering projects. There is a substantial, if not overwhelming, amount of theory behind it all.

Taking a history class is not for being an engineer, by doing well in the class you are proving you can learn and apply yourself to something you are unfamiliar with, that's what jobs really care about, not history! If you cant prove your usefulness in college how would a professional situation expect you to do well when they hand you shit work for an entry level position that you probably wont like.

Know that not everyone was intended for college. It doesn't mean you're dumb, schools are little more than obedience courses... Not hard, just gotta do what they want when they want it.

If you're a *very* hard worker, you can learn a trade and be semisuccessful without college. If you aren't a hard worker, than somethings gotta change if you ever want more than 20k a year.

But if you ever want a comfortable life, hot women to be interested, Any house, you gotta finish college and do well. Don't fuck it up. These are the years that determine your adult earning potential. You do that poorly again and they'll kick you out.

I'm really close with my mom and told her every detail about my classes, but I'm realizing that you kind of have to stop with college since it's important and they're paying. So they don't want to hear about you failing. You have to kind of find the motivation to push yourself.

So stick up for yourself and tell him what I've told you. He's probably only agreeing with a fucking nightmare schedule because the advisor said so, which implies that he's never gone to college.

Now allow me to let you in on a little secret:
