Question

Well now that I am out of jail and at large or at least free it is time for me to get a place of my own. I have worked out a deal and will have all expenses paid for me while I am going to college. The only catch is I have to have at least a B average while I am attending college. It is going to be my first year to college and I am only going to be taking basic courses. Would this be hard to maintain. Not having gone to college before I would not know the answer to this question. Any feedback is appreciated.

you solid bro, my gpa never fell that close to the 3.0 level, i've even taken a few C's...just make sure that if you do bad in a class that you are kicking another class's ass all over the campus or it will fall

ie. if you have 2 hard classes and 2 easy classes make sure you get A's in the easy ones and at least C's in the hard ones 2 A's 2 C's = 3.0

Don't go to Boston University and you'll be fine.

no trouble passing intro classes till you get to Rhetoric and have to write a research paper. That kills most people.

bah, classes aren't bad, what fucks most people up is having freedom and what you do with it

i'd say most people fuck up when they party too much and don't go to class at all, i had a roommate that was done after his freshman year because all he did was smoke out and drink...as long as you do everything in moderation you'll be fine

Trimming your eyebrows should help you with college. LAWL JK!

Anyway, even though i'm not in college, FMAN's right; the freedom can really affect you. I have a few family members that told me the same thing. Just don't party too much and keep your eye on the prize...

Yep, the biggest thing I could say is: Study and don't fall behind.

If you're good, you can just learn the tests and get by, but if you don't slack off, don't get too lazy, you'll do fine.
