In college and unemployed?

If you take an average of 17 mainly science/chemistry credits per semester, and you don’t really need the money, does it matter if you have a job or not in college? Even during the summer I spend an average of 8 hours in class. Also, why do girls I try to date ask if I have a job or not and then don’t speak to me anymore? Is it because they never when to college or they did go to college taking nothing but easy classes and forgot about what it took to graduate? Sorry, complex question. Thanks.

Do not work if you don’t need the money or job experience. College is a full time job.

Perhaps the young ladies are afraid of dating someone with no “date money.” Just tell them you area full-time student and independently wealthy.

😉 They’ll be plenty interested once you graduate!!!

I’d imagine that the women you date are checking to see whether or not you’ll be able to earn your own money or are being supported by Mom and Dad.

Sorry to rain on your parade but when I got my associate’s degree I went to school full time (5 or 6 classes per semester) and worked full time(35-40 hrs. per week). I also had a 3.8 GPA and was on the Dean’s List. Now I am married and a full time Mom and college student and have a 4.0 GPA. It is possible to work and get good grades and not just in easy classes. I will agree with you that Science and Math are harder subjects than most, though.

If you’re lucky enough to be able to go to college without having to work, thank your parents, or whatever fantastic financial aid package you’ve got. You’re really lucky to be able to concentrate on college.

Well, if you don’t need the money then you don’t have to work. Personally I worked two jobs while in college (resident assistant and daycare) and when I wasn’t working, my gpa went down. As for the girls, I can only assume that they think that since you don’t have a job, then they would have to pay for the dates. Just a guess.
