Choosing A College Or University Does Not Only Mean Choose Where You Want To Go!

High school seniors have to apply to colleges or universities. Most high school seniors choose colleges or universities based on how they look or what they have for fun. However, choosing a college or university is not all about where they want to go. They also have to consider the opportunities that the college or university provides for their major, minor, or career.

Some colleges or universities are Ivy League. Some high school seniors apply for those colleges because they are good to go to, they will increase their academic reputation, and they will increase their chances of landing a job. However, they have to make sure if the college or university is good for their major, minor, or career. Some colleges or universities that are not Ivy League are well-known for that certain major, minor, or career. These colleges or universities can help them land a job for that certain major, minor, or career.

Some colleges or universities have master’s programs. Some majors, minors, or careers require college students to pursue a master’s degree. Imagine a scenario where a high school senior gets into his or her dream college. Sadly, his or her dream college or university does not have a master’s program or does not require a master’s degree for his or her major, minor, or career. However, another student went to a college or university that has a master’s program or requires a master’s degree for his or her major, minor, or career. Master’s degrees help students increase their chances of getting hired and earning more money. The high school senior will not get this opportunity because of his or her dream college. This will be unfair to him or her.

If you are a high school senior, then make sure that you research the opportunities that your college provides for your major, minor, or career first. Then, you can decide which one to go to.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
