My return to school has me in a turmoil- can you help guide me to help?
I returned to school last June/ 2009 and I was told it would be a breeze. I had 44 old credits transferred in my favor. The problem was in new uses of Grammatical Terminology, i.e.- "Assessment", which I understood as the Teacher's Role. The next problem was getting use to the Blackboard at the same time learning how to use the Microsoft Word. I felt overwhelmed and frustrated, especially after my laptop was discovered to have a shadow-windows operating system as a result of my downloading the suggested 49 updates. Three days later and my laptop doesn't work anymore(?). Is it bad luck, or am I being railroaded by technology? Anyway- where can I find a compassionate college prep course? My grades do not reflect my I.Q. or real hard work! My day job has 6hrs./300+ miles a day plus 8+ hours of construction work. I want to become a "conflict resolution attorney" in order to help out our Country/America better understand culture- then weed the bad guys out. Thanks

Hi there my friend, while your story appears to be quite the extreme case, it is not uncommon for adult learners to experience some degree of "back to school shock" especially when enrolling into an online degree program. Whomever told you it would be a "breeze" did you a disservice as college-level coursework is challenging whether online or at a ground campus. I am not aware of any "compassionate college prep courses" and I'd say the only prep you require is getting familiar with the basic applications of using a computer, i.e. word processing, web browsing and perhaps optimization of your laptop. Don't get discouraged you can do it!
