I live in Texas, I wonder how long it will take me if I become a bestselling author and what type of education I can get. #education #college #college-major

Neala’s Answer

If you want to stay close to home the best school is UT- Austin. Undergraduate is more about finding yourself and if you do not know what field you want to go into there's no need to be too hard on yourself on what university you pick!

Aastha’s Answer

Hey! I agree with the other posts as well, don’t be too hard on yourself for finding a perfect fit college. Undergrad is about finding yourself and if you’re unsure which school to choose, go based off program and if you like the environment there.

Priya’s Answer

Hi Blanca,
I am not sure which schools would be best for your specific interests but I think doing a search into who offers good programs related to your dreams could help! Some schools may be top overall but not great in what you are looking for, and some may seem average but have a great individual program! Texas has many great schools so I would do a search through their catalogs for programs and classes that sound good for your dreams!

Ross’s Answer

Hello Blanca, I agree with the answers above! I recommend keeping an open mind, and really analyzing the pros and cons of each school. I am biased in my school recommendations and loved my experience at Texas A&M University (both professionally and socially). Texas also has a great academic rigor that will prepare you for many different fields. Texas Tech and University of Houston are also large schools that have the ability to change with you as your career goals change. If you are confident that you know what you want to do, then smaller schools may be more taylored to that career route and also will be more affordable.

Lauren’s Answer

Hi Blanca! Texas has some phenomenal schools however I agree with previous advice that there is no need to box yourself in to apply to stereotypical "good" colleges. All colleges can afford you growth via education. In my opinion, take into account what connections you want to make to become a best selling author (ie you can google some authors to discover which colleges they went to and network with them to. better understand what path and degree they took). Connecting with these individuals will improve your chance of success rather than limiting yourself to the rankings of specific schools.
