Should I transfer back to my old school?

Should I transfer back to my old school? Topic: Strategies on taking notes for a research
May 23, 2019 / By Grier
Question: As a transfer student at michigan I find that I am working really hard but just not cutting it. I have average scores in my chem and physics classes. My old school was an excellent 2nd teir university with a great biochemistry program which was very strong and yet my gpa was a 3.7. I dont like the way university of michigan do things. They make o. chem, chemistry and physics class really tough so that people can change their major to something else. Alot of people who end up changing their majors would have succeeded as a science major elsewhere because the curriculum would have been enough to prepare them and they do well and not give them too much burden. Their questions and tests are so hard that most of this material dont even show up on the mcat or the gre? As a transfer student I only came to michigan for one purpose and to was to get a 3.5 or over as a biochemistry major I dont plan on changing my major. If anything should I transfer back to my old school?

That's a tough question. If you transfer back you will probably be putting yourself behind. It is possible that some of the classes you took at Michigan will not transfer. Why did you decide to transfer to Michigan in the first place? Do you have opportunities that you wouldn't have at your old university? If you can get through the gateway courses, the other courses will probably be easier. Many Research I institutions use the intro science courses to weed out the students who aren't as serious. Instead of working hard, how about improving your learning strategies? Are you attending TA or SI sessions? Do you have a tutor? Have you joined a study group? Regular (weekly)involvement in any of these activties has been shown to have a significant impact on student's grades. Do you use learning strategies such as SQ4R, Cornell Note Taking method, and Concept maps? Go to www.howtostudy.org for instructions. These techniques take a little more time than just reading, but if you do them regularly, they will save you lots of time when you have to review for quizzes and exams. Also, be certain to take advantage of your best resource -- your professor. Most profs keep regular office hours and are happy to answer your questions. When I was teaching, if a student came to me for help because they were doing poorly on quizzes, I would tell them how I wrote them. Afterwards they would do much better.

Dusty Originally Answered: Is it legal to do a title transfer behind the someone back? And how do I get a copy of the title transfer?
Posession is NOT 9/10 of the law with auto ownership. You cannot "transfer a title behind someone's back". Whoever's name is on the title, owns the car, period. If HER name is on the title, it's her car! And her son, exercising his POW, has full rights to have it towed. If the title had YOUR name on it, AT ALL, then he must have FORGED your name to get the title transferred. If your name was not on the title, it's NOT YOUR CAR!! That Promissory note means NOTHING - except maybe you can sue her to get your payments money back. If your name isn't on the title, you have no RIGHT to any information from the wrecker. A notarized bill of sale means NOTHING. It's all about the title. And you don't mention, if your name was on the front of the title at all. You can pay huge bucks and supoena anyone you want - at your cost. That doesn't MEAN anything - they have no duty to ANYONE except the person named, on the front of the title, as the owner of the car. I'd guess, that title was never transferred to you. That means, you don't own, and never did own, the car. Your lawyer is telling you, you have no case. Your ONLY case, would be to get a refund on any payments you might have made. OR, if he forged your name, file criminal charges against him.

Why did he have her power of attorney? Who has the original title? Did you have a signed title? Who did the car actually belong to? It's hard to decipher whats going on here.

Find your nearest community college and see if they have a counselor for older adults. They have special programs in many states. They will give you a placement test and recommend the right math class for you. If you don't want to go to college, you could look for ads for tutors, and call them to see if they tutor adults. Search for "online math help for adults" and you will find lots of sites. Some are free and some charge. Good for you that you still want to learn. I went back to college and graduated at age 40. I hadn't had a math class in 20 years, so it was difficult, but not impossible.
