Default So angry!

Ok, I've been really p***ed lately at my college that I am attending for a mistake they did last semester that they just informed me on when I registered for this semester.

I was taking this math course that was alright just the teacher was horrible. He had the attitude and belief that if you don't do it his EXACT way its wrong and he'll mark you off, even though there is a easier way it doesn't matter. Well he kept getting p***ed with me and me that same to him, I ended up not making the class to be able to transfer the credit. Well I registered this semester the same class, different teacher this time, and the counselor goes "who signed you up for this class last semester? " and I go "one of the cousnelors here" he then replyed saying "you weren't suppose to take this course last semester" I was instantly p***ed! He told me exactly why the couselor did it. So now I have to take a different math this semester that now won't transfer cause its a lower class, and they wasted my money and time from last semester!!! I am so angry at them. This is why I HATE community colleges the people there just don't give a [email protected]$%!

I totally feel your pain!!!!!! I graduated out of the honors math program from a nationally recognized gold awarded school and had a 26 in math on the ACT, and they placed me in remedial math because I didn't take a stupid placement test. To top it off, I was told by my advisor that I didn't have to take it and I would be placed based on my ACT scores and high school math classes and grades. Since i dropped it last semester, I have to take it over

when i did the community college thing i got my advising from the university i attend now. i went to them to check that courses transfered. forget 99% of the the community college advisor'* tell you, they don't know first hand what the university will accept. they may have "equivalence sheets" but they are most likely a few years old.

I have had several scheduling errors with this community college as well...this semester i had to drop chemistry, non of my other courses would move around because we are limited in teachers in the engineering dept. and so now i have to take up chem over the summer, or take chem next year and do English over the summer or something...aggravating as hell...

01bonne wow I so understand with you too! I placed so high on my ACT that I was like 3 of my class level to beat 85% college students in the test, and cause they made us do our placement test in like July my mind wasn't really set on school so I didn't do oh so great. I am going to be writing a letter to the administrators and asking to speak to the Dean, I've talked to him before in a class and he seems cool, so I will be asking him that they should repay me back for there mistake or at least a discount..

Also I will be HOPEFULLY deteriming were I want to go after here so I can email/vist the university and ask in person what classes should I take to be able to transfer.

Just gets me so [email protected]#$# that I suffer cause of THEIR mistake!

it should be noted that what you get on the placement test is in your court, not theirs. i got a 34 on the math portion of the act, and i still had to take the placement test in my first year of college. i didnt mind (it was just another test), so i clepped out of remedial math, and since i had taken the A.P. Calc exam and got a 4, i was able to skip calc 1 too. point is, you can skip most classes (esp remedial) if you take the clep and take it seriously.

as for the situation with placement in math, dont you think their slightly justified in wanting to place you in remedial classes? i mean, apparently you were never supposed to be enrolled in the math you took, and you didnt do so well in it (bad enough you have to retake it). whether you agreed with the teacher and his methods or not, part of being an adult is getting beyond those disagreements and succeeding in spite of them -- the college assumes that if you fail a class it was through lack of ability rather than instructional differences.

so now you have to prove to them that you deserve to be in that level again.

on another note, i feel your pain. ive wasted countless hours and thousands of dollars on mistakes that were made -- they could have been avoided if i had paid attention and checked into things that i needed to, or if theyd have made me aware of things that i felt they should have. point is, theres almost always something YOU could have done to fix a problem before it became a problem.
