Major: Social Work (This Major's Salary over time)
I am looking back at my largest educational mistake. Dr. H first sought an impression obedience by yelling his introductory lecture at students with an illusion of intense demand, arguing that the social work field must change and we were the only ones who were able to do so. He tried to present himself as this authority that would bring this change but the study itself repeated introductory theory at the 300 level instead of the pathway to an applied discipline. I made an initial error thinking that I was somehow making an impression, to a commanding authority, by demonstrating excellent grades at the 300 level. Later on, I found out everyone I spoke with got an A, and the faux impression collapsed. The marketing strategy changed in the third year when many professors argued that they had the connection with an applied discipline but this was not the case. My first impression of the internship was useless, sitting at a desk behind an organizational title, doing absolutely nothing. Towards the end of the program, my impression changed when I had experienced more from my volunteer work than the required internship. I left to attend another school.

Living at the school did teach me some tolerance. There was a lake effect snow and wind that made it difficult work in outside activities after October. A bus does go back and forth between Allendale and Downtown Grand Rapids several times a day but this is the only transportation. With limited transmitters, AM and Shortwave Radio could be received out of state because there was no resistance. My experience downtown let me witness some social problems but it was difficult to make connections. I haven't reported three years of study on my resume with a degree achieved elsewhere.
