How much time college takes is highly dependent on your goals there. I'm a double major in physics and mathematics, and I'm trying to finish in four years. I'm not kidding when I say it's not uncommon for me to be in class, studying, or lab for about 80 hours a week (average is more around 60 I'd estimate, but there's a high variance).

Basically, I think it's a good idea to trim back on other responsibilities before you enter college.

I totally forgot about that, but yeah, double majors have it rough. Yet another example...

Apparently my previous post was horrifically rude and awful spamming, so I guess I'm going to have to post here saying exactly what everyone else is saying, since I'm SURE that that will totally be interesting and will make the day of everyone reading the topic. I mean, it's been said by almost every person in the topic, but repeating it the EXACT SAME WAY, is surely the best possible thing I could do right?

You were a good mod! Good luck in College!

I think that you're more likely to end up with more free time when you're in college. I don't know how high school works in other states but I remember that I at least had 6 for 5 days a week (thus at least 30 hours a week) plus whatever time spent on homework which was assigned often, by several teachers and due the next day.

In my previous college, classes were just 16 hours a week and homework was either seldom necessary or completely irrelevant to your grade and just there for your own practice (so doing it was up to you, if you found a better way to get practice/study, homework means nothing in that instance then). The assignments that did matter were due several days or weeks after it was give.

I suppose if you must study a lot, that can eat a lot of time but that's remedied by just going to the lectures and paying attention >_>. Any studying I may do is for like... 20 minutes at most and that's the day before a test.


I agree with this pretty much. Sometimes I have less time in college because I have more friends there than I did in high school, but past that I spend a lot less time in classes and HW, while extracurriculars pretty much balanced out.
