US College Rankings:

The US News college ranking methodology has changed many times through the years, and is a trade secret. Best known for their 'Forbes 400' list of the richest people in America, the Forbes rankings have been getting a lot of attention for their list of America's Best Colleges. New college rankings aim to reflect a greater emphasis on student satisfaction, as well as recognizing academics. For critics of the US News & World Report college rankings, the new Forbes College Ratings seem to be more balanced, and include high rankings for many smaller colleges.

Although the cost of tuition has risen for most 4-year colleges and universities, community college remains an affordable option for those looking to earn an associates degree. The average community college student graduates with only a few thousand dollars in debt, compared to bachelors degree graduates. Further, if you're planning on transferring to a four-year program, you can save money for the first two years of your education by studying at a local community college, but still receive your bachelors degree from a well-known, four-year university.

College Admissions Guide

Admissions officers want to know how a given applicant thinks, what kind of person they are, and their level of intellectual promise. High school grades are the single most important factor in winning admission to college. Therefore, maintaining high grades throughout the year is especially important. Many colleges are paying greater attention to a student's grades during their senior year, not only in core courses, but in AP or honors courses as well. In fact, an ideal academic record is one of progressively better grades in courses of increasing difficulty.

As the admission's office handles thousands of applications at some colleges, your goal is to stand out in a good way. Your task is to show the schools exactly where you will fit into their freshman pool. Search Google for professional resume samples, like you were applying for a job interview, and write your college application in the same way. Recent developments in college admissions include higher numbers of applicants, more foreign students, and the increased use of the common application form online. Regarding test scores, over half of juniors retaking the SAT as a senior saw improvements, so try these free practice exams online. About half of colleges use a waiting list, particularly those which are more selective. It's important to realize that almost 30% of wait-listed students are eventually accepted.

Financial Aid Applications

Please note that financial aid application deadlines are strictly enforced by college financial aid offices. The official FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov and is free. The ScholarshipExperts.com website is a subscriber scholarship search service. Student loans typically have variable interest rates while federal student loans have fixed rates. Students should be aware that some private loans require large, up-front origination fees as well.

Federal Direct Student Loans, also known as Direct Loans, are funded by the US Treasury Department. Student loans in general should be seen as 'the measure of last resort,' as this entails graduating with substantial debt. Even worse, student credit cards may seem like a short-term solution, but the interest rates are high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. If you do end up using credit cards to meet some expenses, pay off the outstanding balance in full every month, and do not miss any payments. The interest rate can be increased suddenly if you're late on even a single payment. While federal student loans can be discharged for total and permanent disability, private student loans cannot be discharged outside of bankruptcy.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Most business jobs which pay high starting salaries require an associates degree at a minimum, and keep in mind that hiring in technical fields is based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Candidates with prior business experience in a related industry are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on hard results and personal achievement. The business vacancies listed below are updated hourly, so you may wish to save this page for future reference.

In the medical field, there are many fast-growing areas, including medical assisting, imaging, dental, and nursing, just to name a few. Becoming a certified nursing assistant (CNA), for example, may lead to a good salary. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to start working. The next step in a nursing career is to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), or licensed vocational nurse (LVN). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care. Browse the following medical areas below.

Apply to several tiers of selective universities simultaneously, and if you have the grades and test scores, give yourself a fighting chance to get into a top-rated program by doing something outstanding in high school or community college. It isn't as hard as you might think to get an article written in your local newspaper. An advanced degree will stick with you for a long time, so apply yourself and work hard for a few years, graduating from the best school you can. The difference between a first-tier and a third-tier college will have an impact on both job promotions and your networking ability.
