Why is it important to consider smaller colleges that are not commonly mentioned or are less popular than, say, Ivy League institutions?

Many prospective college students aim to apply to colleges with a name that is popular and more known. However, experts mention that smaller colleges can provide the same, or better, environment for students to learn. May someone clarify how this can be? #college #education #learning-environment

If I plan to go to law school a few years after graduation and I am a rising senior now, what should I be doing now to prepare for applying?

I want to take a break and get work experience before I apply. I am a little worried about recommendations and whether waiting a couple years is fine. #attorney

While in college, is it possible to balance a social life, extra-curricular activities (such as student government), a part-time job AND maintain a 4.0 GPA? Or is a 4.0 even a realistic goal?

In high school, I am pretty involved my various activities (NHS, sports, job, youth group, music, etc.), but still manage to keep a 4.0 GPA. A few of my friends who are currently in college, who had a 4.0 in high school, talk about how difficult to keep even a 3.8, much less 4.0. #college...

I feel like the hardest part if being a vet will be putting an animal down because I feel that I am not worthy of taking their life. Does that feeling get easier along the way or am I just going to deal with it?

I feel like I will do anything that I'm able to do to rescue a life. #veterinarian
