    Cool Dr. T's Big Thread of College Wisdom

    College is about to begin!

    Need critical information? Need advice on "What the hell your professor really wants!"? Need survival skills in a brand new environment?

    No need to worry, just pose your question to Dr. T.


    Editor's Note: While I hope to add humor to this thread, and I will encourage alternate advice, I will answer serious questions with serious answers.

    Hmm. I'll sticky this and see where it goes. If it takes off, it may take up long-term residence.

    Picking up Chicks is easy. Find one about your size and use a standard fireman's carry.

    Honestly, Listen to Polonius's advice to Horatio. "To your own self be true." (Shakespeare is full of good advice). Worthwhile relationships -- even the short ones -- are based in respect for a person's individuality. Stay true to yourself and "Be You". In a brand new environment, you will be suprised how well it works.

    I was going to tell you that you should probably ask VA, but then I read twscholl's answer. Sounds pretty good to me.

    Bring lots and lots of glue. What you don't use yourself, you can always trade with others for needed supplies. There are always many glue sniffers around college campuses and you will be their man.

    I cannot get you into Med School. Study for the MCAT and make sure you have all your pre-requisites. I did have a very good friend in college (a theater major, no less) who took all the science electives and got into IU Med School. The moral: Med School's look a thte kind of person you are in addition to the MCAT scores and your science pre-requisites.

    Unntil Med school: "Neither a borrower nor a lender be." Polonius to Horatio.

    While I applaud McClintic Sphere's business accumen (and his knowledge of philosophy from an earlier post), I cannot condone selling glue to addicts. I DO however condone and encourage the selling of quarters. Go to the Bank and get $250.00 worth of quarters. Hang out in the laundry room and sell them 3 for a dollar.

    Suaveness, It can also get you the $$ for Med School.

    Sell quarters at a buck for three"

    I am not sure I am the one to ask about dating advice.

    I have had a good summer with young lady, but we have not become anything serious. I was blessed with us really bonding well, but now she is going back to school at the end of this week and I start a new semester.

    I have never been one to really get attached to people, but her and I really clicked, even if she was a little crazy.

    Anyways, just be yourself and have fun, thats all the advice I can give. It seems like you find people when you are trying the least, and when you try hard and press the issue you just seem to strike out.

    Ahh! Mr. Nash The Wolf Meister.

    Do you find your drunk friends amusing? There are of course many games of chance to play when friends our drunk. Our favorite was a game called "The first to pass out gets humiliated." It usually involved being tied to a tree naked. Without drinking, you always win that one. Then again, you can challenge drinking friends to games of skill -- or mess with their heads by talking in incomplete sentences and incoherent words.

    I also found that once the stigma of alcohol was gone, so was the peer preasure. You can drink legally, but you choose not to. That makes you a person of choice, not a loser. Honestly, if you're friends think you need to drink to have fun with them, then they are the ones with an issue. Hang out with friends and others for their company and it matters not if you drink. Even if they do, it is about the relationship and not the drink.

    Good Luck. Bloomington is a good place. I remember it fondly.

    No advice from Dr. T can help you with that.
    Choose she that striketh your fancy and may she also be stricken by thee.

    Ron-Who:
    College is a very individual choice. You should look look first at schools where you want to study and schools that offer your degree choice. Also be honest with yourself about the type of student you are. Do you need individual attention or prefer large classes? Do you like a campus with a small population or a major campus? Do you want a private school or a public school.

    Your grades are good and many private schools are likely to offer you good financial aid packages. So, if cost is an issue, apply early and let the colleges make you their best offer for admission.

    (I also worked in college admission for several years, so if you have specific questions about particular schools or admission requirements, PM me.)

    Good Luck!

    Pig, if you're looking to fit in and not drink, you'll have A LOT of friends.(If you don't mind driving around all night.)

    Drinking is big, because it's an excuse to socialize and act like an idiot, mostly to pick up girls. You'll be able to socialize, without drinking with no problems.

    People that you meet for the first time, might heckle you, but just say you're the DD, and they'll most likely back off.

    All I know is, everyone likes a DD. It gets rid of a lot of problems. You'll probably be held in high regard.

    Very true. More often than not, I was the DD while I was in college. Believe me, I enjoy beer, but I often find that I have a better time while not blitzed.

    I get around that problem by not even going to parties with alcohol. Most of my friends don't drink a lot, and they won't drink in my apt either. I like that much better really.
