    Which Of The Four #16 Teams Do You Think Will Put Up The Best Fight And Give Us A Somewhat Close Game? Albany (vs. Florida)
    Coastal Carolina (vs. Virginia)
    Weber State (vs. Arizona)
    Cal Poly (vs. Wichita State)

    The #16 teams never win. But It would be awesome to see one do the impossible one day.

      CCU’s average SAT score is 1507. You’re well below average. Sorry if I sound mean, but I highly suggest you retake the SAT and get at least 1500. Talk to some people who have taken it. Buy a study guide (Kaplan, Princeton Review and Barron’s are most popular) or do practice questions on college board. Get a tutor if you must. With 1240, you don’t really have a “good” chance anywhere. You might also want to look into community college.

    • Curator says:

      No. Sorry to be so blunt, but a 1240 is a pretty bad score. Even though CCU isn’t terribly hard to get into, you do want to score at least 1500, even if you’re in-state. Their average is 1507. You might want to take the SAT again and make sure you’re at least average or thereabouts.

    SAT/ College Advice And Help? I have anxiety about college. It’s being addressed, but the thought of not getting into a good school and doing what I love scares me to the point where I shut down and cry. Ridiculous, I know.

    Well, I’m a junior in a well respected high school. My current GPA is an 83, and I have yet to even take my SATs because my anxiety. I want to major in marine sciences, however my chemistry grade isn’t very good, which basically shuts that dream down. I’ve thought of applying to Coastal Carolina, High Point University, and Coast Guard Academy.

    What would my SAT score have to be? And does my lack of great grades in chem really prevent me from following my ideal career path?

    • Curator says:

      Your low chemistry grades are not going to affect your career path. Put that out of your mind. There are plenty of people that struggle with an aspect of the sciences, but flourish in other parts of them. If you really love marine science, then one low grade in high school is nothing. You should be able to get into all of those schools with 1700-1800 (I think, not very familiar with Carolina schools, but that would be my guess). What a lot of high schoolers don’t understand is that they will get into college and that they will be able to follow or discover their passion(s). Stay positive, work hard, and you can do whatever you want. (just out of my own experience, I had weakish grades in Math B’s and A-‘s but I still was able to get into a good school and go premed). Don’t let one bad subject bother you.

    College Of Charleston Or Coastal Carolina University? Should I continue education at Coastal Carolina University or should I transfer to College of Charleston. I’ve been wanting to for awhile now, the only thing that I am worried about is paying for housing in Charleston (way more expensive). Which degree is worth more in the long run? FYI at CCU I’m a marine science major if I transfer I will change into general biology and I plan on going into graduate school. However, Im worried if I don’t get in to grad school my marine science degree will be useless? Any info will help.

    • Curator says:

      Hi James

      Both your current major and your proposed are not great credentials for employment these days. Marine Science is too vague and Bio is totally over-crowded.

      Consider a major in Bio-chemistry and you can treat your MS studies as a lower-division minor when you get your BS degree. Then you would have the qualifications to work in an environmental field – regulatory for government, regulatory compliance for industry, and “green” non-profits.

      Take as many economics courses as you can get and still comply with your major requirements.
      Also, if you can take one course in managerial accounting definitely take that.

      As for the two schools – I can’t address your financial concerns but can tell you that College of Charleston is recognized nationwide as an excellent school – like an upscale private liberal arts school with state tuition.

    • Curator says:

      I have a good friend who lives there and this how she puts it: in the upland region (like Greenville, Spartanburg, etc.) they will ask you what church you attend, in Columbia (center and the capitol) they ask you what you go for a living and in the Charleston–Coastal area, they ask you what will you have to drink?

    Help With Questions About Andrew Jackson!!? 1. Explain how Andrew Jackson’s background influenced his attitudes towards the growing concerns of the country while he was president. Use examples to back up your explanations

    2. How would you evaluate President Jackson’s policies towards Native Americans? Examine both the positives and negatives of Jackson’s policies and then write an evaluation supporting your point of view with evidence.

    3. Why was the doctrine of nullification a danger to the US? Explain the issues involved and support your answer with evidence.

    4. How did president Jackson’s war on the national bank illustrate his strong belief in democracy and the common man?

    Do NOT say to google it because I will spam you.

      1. He had bad associations with the British during the Revolutionary War. He bore a permanent scar on his face from a sword slash given to him by a British officer whose boots he refused to clean, and he knew that his mother had taken sick and died after having to evacuate her home on account of the British during the Revolution. And years later, he knew that the British were instigating trouble with escaped slaves and Native American tribe in the border lands of the nation, such as in Florida and the coastal southern states and Canada. That’s one of the reasons he was so relentlessly in favor of removing Native Americans to the west of the Mississippi River, so that there could be no enemies to promote trouble on the borders.
      2. See #1. Jackson did not hate the Indians, contrary to popular belief. He actually had an adoptive Native American son, Lyncoya. He was no more racist that anyone else of his time, and in some ways probably a little bit less so. But he was implacably opposed to anyone who didn’t do what he thought they should do, and this sure as heck included tribal Native Americans who were living east of the Mississippi.
      3. Nullification was a clear danger to the US, because it basically had the power to cut the legs right out from under the federal government. If a state could unilaterally decide it wasn’t going to go along with a federal law or requirement, it guts the Constitution. In the case of the Nullification Crisis, the south (and particularly South Carolina) objected to a federal tariff that affected cotton exports. Because federal revenues were obtained by tariffs and by selling federal land, if a state or states can decide they aren’t going to provide for the tariff to be collected, it takes money out of the federal budget, as well as establishing a principle that states can overrule the federal government any time they’re unhappy. Not the way to run a country, and not in line with what was established under the Constitution.
      4. Jackson objected to the land speculation that was being done by the large northern banks. He also felt they were an elite that was not answerable to the common people. To a certain extent he was right – but he also did not understand that because the banks were not sufficiently capitalized, his refusal to recharter the 2nd Bank of the US simply led to economic disaster. Combined with his Specie Circular, requiring payment in specie (hard cash, not bank notes) for federal land, the Panic of 1837 and several years of economic depression resulted, because there was insufficient specie to provide for the needs of the economy, and the smaller banks that Jackson thought could duplicate the functions of the 2nd Bank of the US simply weren’t up to the task. Shows the danger of neophytes messing with the banking system.
