Each year as one of NYC’s summer traditions, the Public Theater produces free Shakespeare plays at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. In the last 50 years, more than 5 million people have enjoyed the shows.
This summer, “The Comedy of Errors” is being performed until June 30th. It is a comical tale about two sets of twins who were separated at birth and now live in neighboring cities. When the twins are mistaken for each other it begins the never ending mayhem of mistaken identity.
”Love’s Labour’s Lost” will be performed from July 23 through August 18th. The new musical adaption of Shakespeare’s comedy is about a King and his 3 friends who take an oath to dedicate themselves to scholarship and swear off women. The oath becomes difficult to keep when they come across 4 clever girls from their past.
Hi I've received a C+ in my pschology class and it has lowered my GPA. Will retaking the course and receiving a higher grade remove the C+ from my transcript and increase my GPA? because I am really beating myself up about it. The class was very hard with no review at all, I don't feel that it was a fair introductory course.
If a C+ is considered passing for that class, unfortunately you cannot retake the class for credit, and if you did the new grade would not be calculated into your GPA. I’d suggest you just concentrate on making sure you succeed in all of your upcoming courses. One C+ over four years won’t have that much of an impact on your overall GPA.
If you feel that you’re struggling in a class, you can check out the Learning Center and hopefully get some help in any class that you’re struggling with. Best of luck!
I'm going to be applying to BC during my senior year and was wondering if theres any point in applying to Macaulay Honors program if I have a 1000 combined score on my SAT's? I have a lot of extracurriculars as well if that would help me.
The average SAT score for the Macaulay Honors College is 1200 to 1600, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to apply. If you’re not accepted into MHC, you will still be considered for regular admission.
How much to college jobs pay (like library assistant or cashier at the dining hall*if you have one*)? And are they somewhat easy to get? Also, is that what work-study? They provide you a job at the college to help you pay?
The minimum pay rate for on-campus jobs is $8.50 per hour for undergraduate students and $9.50 for graduate students for the Federal Work-Study program. If you get a job as a college assistant, the rate of pay is a bit higher.
i want to make my SMART appointment but i heard i have to send my immunization paper and meningitis paper. I read that we are supposed to receive these papers in an admission packet, which me and my friend did not receive. So what should be our next step
What is the English program like? How are the professors? Where did they graduate from? How competitive is it?
The English Department is great! It’s not very big, but that just lends to more attention and focus from professors. The program is split into three parts depending on your career goals: English, English Education (to be a teacher), and creative writing.
The professors are some of the greatest you’ll meet. One of my favorites is Professor Helen Philips. She actually graduated from Brooklyn College, and she has written several books. I had a creative writing seminar with her (even though I am just an English major), and it was one of the best classes I’ve taken since being here. It was fresh and innovative and the workshops were incredibly helpful. But it would be best to come check it out yourself.
Students under the age of 24 must provide their parents’ most recent Federal tax returns, unless the student is married. If the student is claimed as a dependent on their parents’ tax returns and parents’ live out-of-state, the student is not eligible for in-state tuition. To provide proof of independence, students must submit their most recent Federal taxes, NYS taxes and W-2’s, as well as their parents’ Federal tax returns which should indicate that they are not claimed as a dependent.
hey i have a question. my GPA isn't good at college Kingsborough now because i had problems. but i want to start fresh and do much better would it be possible to transfer to you with GPA of 2.2 i am math major. I want to start from zero and do way better than doing now. something like second chance
Sometimes a fresh start is all you need. Unfortunately we have to take your Kingsborough record into account for admission purposes here. You’re really close to our minimum required GPA of 2.3. Maybe you can retake a class and replace the grade? Or take one more class and aim for an A? You are more than welcome to come into the admissions office to talk to a counselor. They can help you make a plan to transfer over here as soon as possible. You can walk in or contact us any time.
Once you do start at Brooklyn College, we don’t calculate your Kingsborough GPA into your Brooklyn College GPA, so you do get a second chance here as far as your GPA is concerned — you just have to meet the admission requirements first.
Is there a minimum credit requirements for students applying as transfers?
Nope. As soon as you’ve taken any college credits, you’d apply as a transfer student. If you have more than 25 college credits, you don’t need to show us your high school transcript for admission purposes.
I have one question: The costs per semester by a person who resides in NY is equal a person who lives in the exterior. But that person moves to NY for his first year.
Not sure I really understand your question. If you live in New York state, you pay the New York state resident rate. If you do not live in New York state or are an international student, you pay the nonresident/international student rate. Here’s the tuition/fee breakdown.
I'm an incoming freshman planning to major in education but I was wondering if I'd still be able to take theatre classes and audition for plays?
Definitely! Most of the intro classes in any department don’t require any prerequisites. College is the time to explore your interests, so you should definitely dabble in the theater department and audition.
