I will be starting college in the fall of 2017. Do you have any do's and don'ts to help calm my anxiety?

I've never been away from my family and my college will be 1 1/2 hours away. I don't think any of my friends will be attending the same college I am. It's always scary getting out there and trying new things and now really knowing what to expect. Any kind of advice from someone that's been...

Is graduate school a lot harder than regular college?

What are the benefits and detriments of going to a college/university in your state in comparison to attending one out-of-state?

I am in my junior year of high school and am on the search of the college of my dreams. I am planning to attend a university in Pennsylvania because it is not too close and not too far from my home state of New Jersey. I am getting a bit tired of my current city location and think it will be...

What do colleges and universities look for in applicants?

I've always been told that you should be a "well-rounded" person if you want to get accepted to a good college, but that has never made sense to me. If I was a part of a college board I'd want students that excelled in a field that they are passionate about and would rather them be great in...

University or College?

I'm often pressured by my parents to attend a university and I don't really disagree with the idea, but a college nearby offers a nursing program that I think is more suitable for me than the one at the university. The courses at the university are more textbook based courses while the college...

Would "Special Circumstances" increase my chances of getting into a good college?

I'm applying for Dartmouth through early decision, and I recently found out that I can't include special circumstances. For example, growing up I had 7 siblings, and my moms boyfriend traveled a lot for work so I stepped up a lot to care for them. I had a response ability, and I wouldn't trade...

What to do when you have no idea what career to go into?

Hi, I am currently in grade 10, and many of my classmates seem to already have their whole life planned out. I live in Canada, and I really want to get into an American University, but the chances are slim due to my lack of opinion on what career I really want. In school, I am doing well in...

What langauge courses would be most beneficial to study in university?

Most universities (that I have seen) require a language as a part of your study program. Are there any languages that are preferred by employers or should be considered more (i.e. ASL, Chinese, Spanish..) or can it just be our preference? Thank you! #foreign-languages #university #language...

How do Independent Research Positions or Projects Work at University?

I recently completed and presented a project for a class in which my professor was over the moon about. After class, he suggested that next semester I could turn this project (it was a GIS campus project, in which I worked with Services and various other departments to complete) into an...
