Well put SS. That's very good advise quake, time to grow up, see things for yourself. Never pick a school because of friends or family might happen to be there, wrong reasons!

Re: College

Seriously. I went to school and made all new friends. You have no idea how much fun college can be but if you go somewhere because of friends or family then you risk not stepping out and getting the total experience.

Re: College

Especially considering that Tenn is the weakest academically of the three. Why not Florida? Comparable price but better reputation. Also, I am a PSU guy and I can assure you you can't go wrong there.

Re: College

I have decided to go to Florida. Mainly because of what Smootsmack said. It is time for me to grow up and meet new people and all that stuff.

But, if LSU sends me a letter I am going there but Florida for now

Re: College

Yes. I dug up a 5 year old thread, because I didn't want to create a new one.

Next fall will start my last year of graduate school and right now I'm trying to figure out what classes to take. I'm a human sciences/psychology/counseling major and I've got to take a basic human science course. After registering for another class and working around my work schedule and class schedule, I'm left deciding between statistics (I'm horrible, emphasis on HORRIBLE at math. Took it in undergrad because it was required, got a C and never wanna take it again) and intro economics, something I have no idea about. I'm a little scared because I don't know what economics is going to entail, so someone with some business savvy educate me on how difficult it may be for someone who's never even fathomed the idea of having to take econ... Ever.

Here's the course description:

2012 Fall Main Session
ECON 551/Lecture/01 - Foundations of Economics | Credits 3.00
(First semester/3 credits) Introduction to the basic tools of economic analysis that are employed to examine the environment of a firm at both the microeconomic and macroeconomic levels. The micro portion focuses upon the behavior of consumers and firms in the product and resource markets. The macro portion examines the domestic and international factors that influence the aggregate level of economic activity, and the role of monetary and fiscal policies in promoting full employment, price stability and economic growth. A basic human science course.

I would think as a counselor/psych major you'd be far more interested int he econ class. It shouldn't be too terrible but econ is notoriously hated for some reason. Econ has math but it isn't on the level of a stats class. Go econ...you'll learn something more useful probably.

If I had seen this 5 years ago, my reply would have been:

I'd remove Penn State from the list if you're serious about a quality education.

Re: College

DR -- Go with Economics. Statistics is so open and shut. Right vs wrong answers. Econ will give you a little more flexibility. I've taken both, at a very basic level. Not sure about your school, but mine is pretty conservative. As long as every answer focused on the free market being the best way, it was correct! (not quite that easy, but my basic strategy!)

Both of them will suck a certain amount, but I think econ is the lesser of two evils.

I did the samething SS. Academics is only half of the college experience and Im not making a joke there. I ended up chosing Mason over Va Tech just based on the diversity of the student pop.

Normal they make two course on a 101 level of economics; one MICRO one MACRO. So if they are are squeezing both into 3 credits I think this course should be fairly easy to understand and master. Has to be given at a very high level basically a overview.

Of the two, you'll dig econ more. Only basic math functions will be used in this econ course, it's largely a study of human behavior, but done so graphically and with basic mathematics and logical thought processes. Very useful class in daily life, you'll gain an understanding of the way interest rates work, which can apply to mortgages to investments to loans to whatever.

Statistics is probably the single most useful class in all of undergrad, though. If you can grasp it well, the applications are endless. The most useful for your line of work would be understanding the statistical range within which the human mind would react to counseling or medical treatment for psychiatric conditions. ie with 95% confidence you could expect x kind of behavior.
