    Just stick with it. You'll be done before you know it. If you need help with math I can teach the Sh*t out of some math to you. Any class, any day. Here's what we'll do. We get a bottle of wine, drink it from the bottle (because we're classy like that) stumble into a bar somewhere we'll be excepted, and than we crank out all your math problems, you make an A... and in return you can give me a piece of paper that says I own your soul. But I'll help you with math without taking your soul too, I just love making math easy for people because it is. All those professors drone on and on about God knows what because they want to make it hard. I know all the tricks.

    Stick with it. In the end it will be worth it. I hate taking the core classes as well. I wish I could only take the art classes I enjoy. But oh well so be it. In the end it will make you more well rounded and hey that never hurts.

    I say take the core classes, do really well. And never have to do them again. Because if you suffer through the courses, get bad grades, there's a high chance they'll come back to haunt you (e.g. my precalculus grade. I didn't get accepted to a program because of it... and guess what I'm taking in the summer.) I'm guessing it's been a couple of years. I hope you did well!

    i failed to read everyones response prior to mine so maybe this has been covered, but the reason you have to take courses that don't coincide with what you're interested in is because there is a hierarchy of achievements that you have to complete in order to get the bachelors degree. think of college as a factory building little renaissance people who aren't completely ignorant to the world. did i want to know about things like parallax or habitable zones? fuck no i didn't, but now i do. anyway, if you're an art major there are specific establishments for art training. art institutes and such...

    There are lots of colleges that don't require core coursework, but you won't get a degree from them.

    Stick it out. It seems pointless pretty frequently, but you'll find the proverbial gem every now and then.

    Yeah school does make me feel stupid when it comes to classes that don't interest me... and when the majority of your classes mean nothing to you you're in for a pretty blue time...
