    College is more focused on applied learning, and university is for "higher" learning.

    Or that's the best I can do to explain it lol

    Sorry you are having a tough time but you do have a good average

    I only went to University - I did well enough in most classes but almost failed a couple too. It just depends on the course.

    You'll get used to it

    I think the technical definition (in the US) is that universities offer postgraduate work (PhD and Masters) and College only offers undergrad. I think a good comparison to the US is Canadian "College" is comparable to US Junior College or Community college.

    I'm sorry you're having a tough semester. I'm right there with you. This is my LAST semester, and I just got early acceptance to a masters program in the fall. But am also now 30 weeks with baby #2, and struggling so much to get everything done. I have SO much writing to do before the end of this month. I am so behind on my thesis, and have some work reports that must get done so I can afford to take the summer off with the kids.

    It's so hard to keep motivated- no to mention find enough waking hours to get the work done. Late nights are physically impossible anymore. The unstructured, self-motivated part is tricky, especially when there are many things competing for your attention.

    I wish I had magic words to help us! These days, mine are: "JUST GET THE EFFING THING DONE!!!!" or more often, "THERE'S NO WAY I CAN GET IT ALL DONE!!!!"
