I'm on the verge of transferring from mission community college to a State College but I don't really know what to do. I still don't know what I want to major in and I don't want to waste time. What do you guys recommend I should start doing? I want to major in business, but the "term" business relates to a lot of things. I want to have some type of bank job in the future. I'm also interested in majoring optometry, but I don't know if I could handle all the science and math courses. I can handle math and science, but I'm still skeptical about my ability. Can you guys give me a break down on how I should transfer or go about to choosing my major. For opometry, I'm kinda scared to get into that because I think I have to transfer to San Francisco College and that area is completely different from the San Jose, way different. I was wondering if there were anybody that has a degree in business or optometry.

im currently trying to apply at San Jose State and im confused on some of the terms and the deadline for applying is nearing to an end soon.

What do they mean by "MBA" on and off campus? is it asking if I'm living on the campus or off the campus?

For degree objective: Do I put "BA" if I want a 4 yr degree?

What does this mean "Education credential objective (may be in addition to major/program objective). Teacher, specialist or other service credential program:" they have applying for a credential and not interested and planning to apply for credential what are those?

im assuming u have already applied to the SJSU. if you did u better hurry up and send in your transcripts. they are due on the 15th. you will need to go to your admissions office and request a transcript to be sent. since its about 2 weeks before the deadline, i would recommend you do rush delivery.

if you are applying for spring 06, then thats something else. if you want to get into banking, i would recommend business admin/ finance or accounting for sjsu. for business majors, i would only recommend you go to sjsu or sdsu for state colleges. BA, BS, is basiclly the same degree, one is for science and the other one i think is for administrative. as for the questions that you posted in bold, i have never ran into those on the online application. go to www.assist.org and they have links to apply online. of course you will need to set up new accounts if you dont have one.

you will also need to make sure that you have completed the IGETC for transferable units, and also check out www.assist.org for classes that are required for your major. if you do not complete the classes on assist, then you will need to complete them when you transfter to the new college.

BA = Bachelor of Arts
BS = Bachelor of Science
MBA = Masters (Degree) Business Administration
Education credential objective = Certification to be a teacher in the State of California

Q: For degree objective: Do I put "BA" if I want a 4 yr degree?
A: BA or BS, depending on the type of degree given in your elected "Major"

only apply if you will meet the minimum units required before the term for transfer, otherwise you will not be accepted. on and off campus just means if your going to take courses on the campus (in class) or off campus (internet based classes or video classes) like distant learning. i think for some off campus classes, you still have to go to school to take exams.

if you are still uncertain in what you want to major in, check out the assist website, it will give you an idea of what your getting yourself into with all the classes that you will need to take and for what college.

like if you hate math, then engineering is not for you since the math requirement is really high. for state business all you need to get up to is business calc, which is pretty easy. as with UC business, most require calculus.

play around w/ the website, i think there is more to the site then i have discussed.

good luck and i hope i cleared some things up for you.

Off and on campus basically means where you will be learning. On campus is obviously in a classroom, but off campus can be various things such as an internship, off site class, online class, mail in, etc.

And bah, calculus isn't hard, just make sure you do your homework. Physics and Chemistry is where hell is at.

I believe SJSU is a 4th tier school. There is nothing wrong with that but there is more out there. As for your major, rest assured lots of us in the working world work in fields unrelated to our degree.

Have you considered Santa Clara University? I love it here. I'm majoring in mechanical engineering, but a lot of my friends are doing the business thing.

That is a great alternative to SJSU and tuition is only nonuple.

i must say, my teachers for my business classes are very very good at chabot college and some of the business teachers are millionaires(so they say) with very good experiance, ive had two. im surprised at how many teachers at this community college actually cares about the students education. im hoping when i transfer to CSUH that the teachers are just as good or better.

oh, to answer your question, go see a counseler.
