Whats better- getting more sleep before your test or staying up all night studying?

After college, should I look for a job, or should I go to graduate school?

I am currently a second year student in college, and I am trying to plan out my future for the next few years (or have a brief outline of what I might want to do). Many of my upperclassmen friends told me that they decided to find a job after college, rather than go to graduate school, and I'm...

Is the college I go really so important?

I know that some colleges are better than others but at the end of the day is it just about the degree? Lots of people tell me it doesn’t matter where you go as long as you get the information. But there’s a reason some schools costs so much more- is the quality of education worth it? I don’t...
