That sounds rather fake. 3,500$ for Bowling? Why would you even need a class on Bowling for college? Now that the serious part is out of the way... With only one class I guess you'll have a lot of SPARES. :P Maybe you should protest it and start a student STRIKE. :P Well, looks like that's another 3, 500$ in the GUTTER! :D

First off OP might have to live in the dorms if he isn't living by his parents. Dorm, cost of medical insurance for the college, the cost of other services, would be the large cost. I took an exercise/one credit class and it was 500. He isn't paying for that, he is fucked because he has to pay for a whole semester for one credit. You are an idiot for not thinking things through.

@42...this very well could be true, I had a similar situation happen to me recently, except that I had been approved for graduation, walked across the stage, and then 2 months later got an email saying I hadn't actually graduated because I was 1 unit short. I had gone to my counselor and had a 4 year plan just like I was supposed to, but she never checked or mentioned one of the requirements which made me 1 unit short. Lucky for me I had a lab unit that I was able to get added on and didn't have to take another quarter of classes. But the reason they would have to pay so much could be because of a unit requirement like someone else stated. At my school we were required to have at least 13 units each quarter or we would automatically be put on academic probation no matter what grades we received.

Bowling is an important skill in life. it should be a requirement along with table tennis. the $3500 you spend on it now will pay off big dividends in the future

Wow, its extremely obvious you are a widdle high schooler who knows nothing about college. Go update your Myspace or watch Twilight or something. You don't figure out your college schedule with a calculator, moron.

There are many ways an advisor could've screwed him over. I got screwed at college too, the only difference is that I go to college for free. But then I'll have to leave my job if I want to graduate :(

OP's own damn fault. They teach you to go to college to think for yourself, not be told what to do. By the time you graduate college you should be so knowledgeable about graduation requirements and courses for your degree, you could lecture an incoming freshman. Adviser time really was worthless probably 90% of the time.

I am in a similar situation as the OP. I was told my AP statistics credit was good but apparently its not so I have to take biometry or environmental statistics in a new quarter. Now tell me how I have any control or knowledge of what courses I can get credit for and which I can't? In short, #3 and #80 are idiots.

oh yeah, because one typo undermines 4 years of undergraduate studies. you are just SO badass and SO smart for calling him out on that. we should all be WORSHIPPING you because of your godly grammar skills. pretentious high schoolers really shouldn't be allowed on the internet.

It's not always pretentious high schoolers who like to point out people's spelling/grammar mistakes on the internet. (Oh my God did you see that? I did not capitalize internet!) Sometimes I wonder if it's not just people who spend a lot of time reading comments (nothing wrong with that) and thinking they would like to get in the game by nitpicking every single mistype or error because they think, "ooooh everyone will think I am so god damn funny and SMART because I am confident in my language skills." They fail to realize that nobody gives a fuck.

I've done my own research about what I need and don't need to graduate, which classes fulfill which requirements, and what I've received credit for through test scores. As a result, I have a spread sheet that keeps track of my GPA and has laid out several possible options for me to fulfill graduation requirements in several different majors. I've added a major, and also switched entirely from one to another, and am considering a minor or two because of the extra time available to me as a result. All my advisors have done for me so far is clear holds so that I can register for courses. In other words, you deserve it for relying on someone else (even if it's their job) to tell you what classes you needed to take to graduate.

i'm doing a double major in human biology and biochemistry, and can only have 2 credits overlapping between the 2 majors. the requirements to fulfill both have 3.5 credits overlapping, and it doesn't say anywhere in the handbook which courses i can and cannot use to make up for the 1.5 credits i need. i arbitrarily chose 1.5 biology credits, and cannot graduate because i chose the wrong ones. so even if you don't rely on someone else you can get fucked.
