When I started at N.C. State, my anticipated graduation date was May 2019. After a series of changes with my major and minor, and even which school I was taking classes at, I am now going to graduate in December 2018.

If you heard the number of changes I made to my degree, you would definitely think that I would need to stay behind a year rather than graduate a semester early. I started at the business school to do accounting, but I dabbled in some engineering classes when I wanted to switch to industrial engineering. I finally decided to major in statistics but at that point, I already had enough business and science classes (because of engineering) that I could have filled a minor.

All the while, I decided I wanted to study abroad the fall semester of my sophomore year, which only allowed me to take 4 GEP classes, one of which didn’t count toward my degree.

With all the changes, I was certain I would not make my original graduation date. To combat that, I started taking summer classes – a total of six in the summers of my freshman and sophomore year. Without realizing, these courses helped me stay on track to graduate.

Another thing that helped me graduate early was talking to my adviser about which classes can count for which credits. Since I did so much bouncing around, I took a lot of classes that didn’t really fit in with the typical four-year program for a statistics major at N.C. State. However, there were a lot of classes that were close to other classes that statistics majors need. After some bargaining, I showed my adviser that the courses were similar to one another and that they should be counted as the same. This really helped me get the credits that I needed to finish my degree without falling behind.

My advice to anyone who wants to do a lot in college and still graduate early is to make sure that you ask questions. There is no harm in asking if certain classes will count toward your degree and in the end, it may just help you out.

    Hey everyone
    I’m so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again…
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
