Hi there, I am currently working full time and going to school full time as well.I want more than anything to go far in finish school but I always seem to put work first and I always procrastanate when it comes to school work. And when I do finally sit down and try to work on it, I get to frustrated and stop after about 30 minutes. I'm on medicince but it doesnt seem to work all that well.. Any ideas to get my self motivated and not put off everything until the last minute?
I'm Addy. I attend ASU; BS Criminology/Criminal Justice and applying to law school. I'm on summer break for the next two weeks. I love ASU, my advisors, and professors. ASU is challenging and worth it.
When I attended University of Phoenix, I drove the instructors and students crazy. My instructors said that I was bored and needed a challenge. They encouraged me to transfer to ASU.
In grammar school, I was diagnosed with a learning disability, immature, and always in trouble. In high school, I skipped school my first year. My last three, I worked for credit, attended every class with the option of attending LD classes, or tutoring. I chose tutoring, and found myself tutoring others.
I tend to become a perfectionist and overachiever with academics. When I run into difficulty, I become frustrated and more determined. I guess it's because I could not make As and Bs in grammar and high school.
Can you write your paper in bullet points at first? That might help you organize thoughts and see what extra information can be taken out. Then condense into paragraph form. - hope this helps.
Hey everyone, can any of you help me figure out how to write a quality paper without rambling on. My style got me through my 1st year or so as a doc student, and switched majors, and schools, my style is not longer appreciated. Concise and straight forward is where I struggle. Anyone who can help?
Based on my past educational stages where I declared "disabled" for accommodations, Annabeth, re-testing for adhd and having someone their to advise you of your educational decisions sounds very strange. I have never had that in schooling. They were their if I chose to talk to them or discuss my schedule for the next semester. Your situation is odd to me, based on what I experienced of course. Now I am at the doctoral level and thinking about asking for support. This is my second time in a doctoral program, and since starting this year the tasks are hard to get done and focus. So help may be needed for me. As for you, I would investigate more. Good luck.
Great idea for a group! I did very well in undergraduate school on medication. Soon I'm going to start grad school and give it a try off the meds since I've been off them for a few years. I'll be sharing my own college experiences and tips for other college students on my blog soon!
Went to admissions and testing yesterday and I stupidly mentioned that I had been diagnosed with ADHD....Now I have to not only do the usual testing for testing out on subjects, I have to talk with an adviser to make sure I'm making the right decisions. What's up that? Is that normal?
