pandemia Posted June 11, 2010 Report Share Posted June 11, 2010 Hey guys! I have a bit of an issue which I hope some of you can help me with. So here it goes: I have completed my first year at Carleton university. Right now I have 5.0 credits. I always saw myself living in Canada but until last week my future has taken for the better and for worse (temporarily at least) . I recently got my green card for the United States and right now I have the option to extend my stay here in Canada for another two years and thats it. This means that I have to somehow finish a 20.0 credit bachelors program within 2 more years. I am enrolled in an honors program but from what I gather I don't think I can finish an honors program within 3 years since the honors seminar courses are usually not offered during summer (Could be wrong about this). But an honors degree does have its own advantages such as preparing you for graduate schools and I have yet to research but from what I hear some medical schools actually give you extra points for having an honors degree. So I have two choices right now. a) Either I talk to my school counselor in helping me pick courses that will enable me to still pursue and finish an honors program within two more years. I end up taking higher level courses and eventually having 20.0 worth of credits and end up not having an honors designation which will comprise my other alternative career or graduate school choices. I apologize in advance for my lengthy post but I would really appreciate if pm101 members can give me some input before I talk to a counselor.
