Life changed her plans…

Writer Erin Zammett Ruddy faced an uncertain future, at age 23, when she was diagnosed with cancer. She states in her piece, “Do You Need A Five-Year Plan?”, Self magazine, “For all my planning, suddenly I didn’t know if I’d be alive in five years.” The good news is, Ms. Ruddy survived her ordeal, and through it all she reevaluated her life plans, “I realized that some of the things I thought were most important to me…didn’t quite make the cut anymore.”

March is Women’s History Month

Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment

About This Year’s Theme

Women now outnumber men in American colleges nationwide, but it wasn’t long ago in our American history when women weren’t “allowed” to attend college. The fight for an education was a constant struggle waged by many strong, determined women—across years and across cultures—in our country. We have those women to thank for our own education today.

Only 15 Minutes

It takes only 15 minutes for total strangers to decide your future.

Shocking as it might seem, the process involved in deciding whether you get into a certain college–or not–takes only minutes by a committee.

Not only that, the process is highly subjective. Things you wouldn’t think should matter often do. Besides GPA, the difficulty of classes taken, a well written essay and your extracurricular activities, a candidates gender, state of origin and race, play a large part in the process. And believe it or not, GPA isn’t always at the top of the list as most candidates think. Well-rounded students are usually more desirable than those totally focused on academics.
