College Tips from a recent Ivy League Graduate!
Hey guys! I know most people are on break right now, so I thought it would be a good idea to get this video up in between semesters! These are some of the most important tips that I personally believe really make a difference in your overall performance in college. They range from academic to personal, and when applied together, these tricks help maintain the best overall balance between the two! As you may already know from My Story, education is so incredibly important to me. As women, I know a lot of us like to look pretty and make sure the makeup and hair are on point, but I think it is even more important to make sure that we push ourselves to the limit when it comes to excellence and achievement and school is one of the best places to do that! It took a lot of thought and decision making to choose the right school for me. There are so many Public Ivy League schools and colleges, but finding the right school will make you excel in ways you could only dream of. I know education has opened doors for me that I never could have imagined gaining access to, so I hope that you will find this information helpful as you pursue your own academic goals. As my parents always told me, “Education is your golden ticket. It’s one of the few things you can acquire in life that can never be taken away.
Here is my academic profile: I have been to private schools all my life. I attended two Quaker schools, also known as “Friends School,” between Kindergarten and 12th grade. I absolutely loved it and I truly believe that the Friends school system is one of the best, if not the absolute best when it comes to providing an excellent holistic education. From high school, I went to Dartmouth College, and to say I loved it there would be an understatement! It is a small Ivy League college in Hanover, New Hampshire that has ranked #1 in Undergraduate Teaching by the US News for the 4th year in a row (since the inception of this ranking criteria). I am currently taking time off after college to work and pursue a few dreams of mine before I go to college. After I eventually go to college, I could decide to later go to graduate school. A lot of my friends have done that, so it’s something I’m keeping in mind. The only off-putting thing is that a lot of my friends have said that graduate school is expensive. Whilst this is a little worrying, my friends have sent me a blog post from GoFundMe explaining how to pay for grad school. That’s handy and I’m probably going to read that after I finish my college course. People shouldn’t be put off continuing their education because of finances, there are always going to be ways to pay for things.
However, before worrying about grad school, you have to do well at college. Ultimately, it is no secret that to do well in college, you will need to write a large number of essays. With this in mind, if you are a college student in need of essay writing and editing support, you might be interested to learn more about the services of collegepaperworld.
