My second annoyance with the pack, too easy to get into the distinguished degrees. This mod aims to make low level skills (under 7) count a lot less in the acceptance. So to get into a distinguished fine art degree, for example, you need to actually be a damn good painter.
Updated - made it a bit easier, and:
Made high school level A count more for some courses like Physics
Made Herbalism skill give a bonus for Biology (wtf Maxis...)
Made Bartending give a bonus for Culinary Arts (WTF MAXIS!!?)
Made Physics give bonus for Doctor
Made History, Art History and Language and Literature give a bonus for Professor
Made Biology give a bonus for Scientist
Made Psychology give a bonus for Lawyer and Doctor
Made some traits give bonuses for getting into distinguished degrees:
Genius - will affect all degrees,
Art History - bonus for Creative and Art lover.
Communications - bonus for Outgoing and Insider.
History - bonus for Bookworkm.
Economics - bonus for Materialistic.
Computer Science - bonus for Geeks.
Fine Arts - bonus for Creative.
Language and Literature - bonus for Creative and Bookworm.
Biology - bonus for Loves Outdoors.
Villainy - bonus for Evil and Mean.
Drama - bonus for Goofball, Self Assured, Outgoing.
Culinary - bonus for Foodie and Creative
Psychology - bonus for Insider.
I get they wanted it based on merit, but that's going to make sims even more all alike, 'cause honestly... skills are so easy.
The bonus are small in most cases.
