What time and financial constraints have you faced since starting college? How did you deal with them?
I am done with college. They are asking about YOUR constraints and coping methods.
1. You now have to manage your own time. Are you getting to all your classes on time? Are you getting all your assignments done? If not, what will you have to do to change things? I had to make a daily and hourly schedule for myself -- including time spent in classes, time spent studying, time for meals, etc.
2. You also need to manage your own money? I was on scholarship for most of the tuition, room and board, and other fees, but I had to earn the money needed for books, and my parents sent me money for other things not covered by any of the above (toothpaste, laundry, shampoo, pencils, paper, etc.). If I ran out of money well before the end of a month, I was in serious trouble!
What are YOUR experiences?
