UGH!! As midterms she swore she was doing extra credit and had talked to the english professor about regrading a couple papers. Chemistry we knew was going to be iffy..but 3!!??!! GEEZ!! So I'm guessing the college will put her on academic suspension. I just don't know what to do with her!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

I know I'm not the only one on the board who thinks the posters on College Confidential are - well I was going to say crazy, but maybe obsessed is more like it.

LOL, have you ever checked out College Confidential? Not at a top 20 college, why bother? And everybody is either going into engineering or on to medical school.

Ok, let's not go there, the whole "cc education is every bit as good as a bachelor's degree." Yes, there are many fine community colleges. And if you're talking about health sciences, especially in direct care, there's no difference in work done by the 2year or 4year grad. But,, the OP's child is failing at a 4 year school, and that's a very different experience. If it didn't reqire more, it wouldn't take twice as long. I'm simply agreeing with the PP who pointed out that sometimes a four year school is just too hard, maybe because of all the requirements outside a student"s area of interest, no matter what that interest is. Killer courses aren't always in the sciences.

I'm with Bunnie on this one. Just like Nursing, Dental Hygiene can be taken at a community college, or a 4 year college. When I decided to go back to school to get my RDH, I already had a BA in Psychology/Human Resources, so I asked many of the dentists I talked to in the course of my previous job, whether they saw any difference in the clinical skills of hygienists with a BS as opposed to an AAS. To a person, they said, "No." They said they saw bad hygienists from both, and good hygienists from both. They all said the CC I was considering, had a program as complex, and demanding, as any 4 year school, and produced excellent hygienists. And since that program had/has a 99% first test pass rate for the 2-hour Oral Path, 4-hour Clinical and 6-hour National Board exams, I guess they were right. The program begins summer term, and continues for 24 straight months. Each class requires a C or better for graduation. Since there is only a 6 point spread per grade, that means any grade less than an 82 is a flunk, and requires RE-ADMISSION to the entire program--there is NO retake the following semester. The required courses during the first 12 months include (but are not limited to) Chemistry, Microbiology, Anatomy (with a human cadaver), Physiology, Histology, Pharmacology, and General & Oral Pathology. And I have found, in conversations over the years, that my education in those subjects was better than that of many BSN's.

I know that is a general statement, but that really depends on the calibre of the community college.

You are right, of course.
