RIght now, I'm putting about 2 hours per week into my graduate class. My last class was about 15 hours per week though.

Actually, it seems like the less a person studied the better their job is.. roomate who never studied is now working at Warner Music for 65k a year. Old roommate who spent 5 to 6 hours a day doing engineering homework is hoping to get a job at Best Buy for 6/hr.


i think ur full of crap

do u think ppl who are successful just made it without hardwork

just coz some dude made it doesnt mean ppl who work hard are less successful then those who do

Well I won't say he is full of crap. He just gave us a snapshot of things, never told us anything more about these people with low grades who got good jobs. Maybe they are very good at interviewing, are smooth talkers, really good looking or had some good connections. Also, luck plays a big part too.

Last year, I was lucky to do an hour to two hours a week of studying. Days before finals/midterms I'd just cram.

I cannot stress enough the need for studying in college, so I won't try. I've got to get back to studying.

J/k, no school for 2 more weeks ;) Seriously though, studying is very important. What's your major going to be?

you must be dumb to have to study that hard in high school

maybe he's aiming for straight As...

i got straight As in high school and i think the only time i studied more then 1 hour was for my AP tests

You obviously didn't take AP English! ;)

I think there is a difference between studying and doing homework. I do about 3 hours of homework every Monday Wednesday and sometimes Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday, I study as in reading the book and taking notes for about an hour and then do more homework.

True

just concluding based on a few cases is crap

if u have ever read harvard business review, in 1 particular issue i remember , they interview a lot of fortune 500 companies CEO's almost 95% of fortune 500 ceo's were focussed right from the beggning and knew wat they wanted to do with their careers
