It feels good to be appreciated. A simple ‘thank you’ goes a long way. Just like you feel great when someone appreciates something that you do, others feel the same way, especially when it’s in the form of a note. Never underestimate the power of a thank you note.
So, the time has come to begin applying for school. You have a few colleges on your list (see From High School to College) but you just can’t seem to make a decision. You’ve visited them all (which I highly suggest doing), they all seem great, but which one is best for you? How can you possibly decide? I’ll tell you one simple way that students often overlook.
usnews.com has come up with the 2012 list of the top universities. What’s so special about this list? It’s not just limited to U.S universities, but the top universities of the world. This list consists of the top 400 schools, with 13 of the first 20 being American schools, 1 Swiss school, 1 Canadian school, and the remaining 5 of the first 20 being in the UK. I believe this list is well worth your while to check out. You never know, you just may be surprised!
