I heard that the colleges you hear in TV are horrible- both from my parents and my friends. I believe ITT Tech was on TV?
Being from the Boston area and the colleges what they are here most of them advertise on T.V (not an obscene amount ) and if you think Harvard or Boston College or BU are something to scoff at cause you saw it on T.V you will be in for an interesting ride,
My son is headed off to college in Sept. and I have a nephew who will be attending his second year, The competition to get in a school is harder then its ever been mostly due to the fact that applicants can now apply online what used to take a few hours now takes just a few minutes and the typical a few years back was most seniors in high school applying to maybe 4 or 5 schools has now turned into the teens some as many close to 20,
So with that comes the natural competition amongst the schools themselves. In today's media age you wanna be a big dog no matter how good your name is you still have to get it in front of people,
Don't rule out something because of something someone said to you look into it yourself do some home work on the school visit it, a lot of colleges have online chat rooms see if you can find them,
A lot of beer companies advertise on T.V and the beer I have is never horrible
all of their instructors (except for the non technical ones) actually work in the fields that they teach (usually)
I would rather have someone that got their hands dirty doing it teaching me rather then someone who read about it in a book,
Nothing like real life experience to learn from
and to end
What are your thoughts on the options I have for my perfect college?
It has to be something or someplace you really love or it doesn't matter
