Thinking of Dropping Out of College?
If rising tuition costs or personal concerns have made you consider dropping out of college or "taking a break" I'd like to encourage you to reconsider.
The All-Important College Application
H.G. Wells once said, "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe," which emphasized the importance of continued schooling. As the fate and future not only of any great nation ? but the world, is dependent on the education of its youth, a far brighter light is cast upon the college application process.
College Roommates: Threes A Crowd
It's hard enough sharing a dorm room the size of a postage stamp with one person, but what happens when your roommate consistently invites friends and dates to hang out too? Even if you all get along, it can get old fast. Sometimes you just want a little privacy. At the very least, you don't want to feel like an outsider in your own room.
Acing the SAT Exam
Don't cheat. This goes without saying for 999 out of 1000 students (hopefully even more!) but cheating is not the way to score high on the SAT exam. Not only do you sacrifice your integrity and trustworthiness, you do yourself the huge disfavor of taking something you did not earn, and I guarantee that it will catch up with you sooner or later.
Distance Education is Now Training the Next Genertation of Medical Assistants
Some people are calling it distance-free learning for the Medical Assistant. Distance Learning happens wherever the learner is most available, free from the traditional boundaries of geography. It could be in the next room, or in the next state. It uses whatever technology is most available and appropriate to allow effective learning wherever needed. It changes the rules. Now, you and your colleagues, the learners, are more able to adapt and use your newly-gained knowledge for your real world challenges immediately. Laboratory work is done at your own location.

College Roommate Personality Clashes: How to Survive
Are you living with your total opposite? It's amazing how different two people sharing the same (tiny) room can be. Even the littlest things can drive you crazy after awhile! You eat Big Macs and chicken wings while your roommate swears by tofu and beans; you like Coldplay and your roommate cranks up Tim McGraw. You're East Coast; your roommate is West Coast. Whatever your differences (and there are bound to be a few), you need to figure out what you're willing to live with and what's fair to ask your roommate to change.
MRCP and MRCPCH ? Preparation for the Examination
There should have been a time in the human history when there was no need for anyone to prove themselves; it is so delightful to think such a planet earth where human beings were free as birds without examinations. But to entertain such thoughts is almost sinful, a taboo for those in the medical field!!! It is all the more true for those who aspire to gain their MRCP and MRCPCH certifications. MRCP stands for Membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians and MRCPCH stands Member of the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health. There are three Royal Colleges of Physicians in the United Kingdom that awards membership certifications on Diploma of Membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom and Membership of the Royal Colleges of Pediatrics and Child Health.

See which choice will fit you best:
I Hate My Roommate!
So its the beginning of the school year, your first day of class is over, and you just want to sit down and relax for a moment because you know that the rest of the semester won't be as easy as Day 1. You're alone in the room. Quiet. You sit, close your eyes, roll your head to massage your neck.
Federal PLUS Loans
As a student entering college, it is very unlikely that you have a few spare checks lying around that you can cash and magically use to pay for college. Most college-aged students, ranging from late teens through mid-twenties, have no line of credit and cannot receive much money in loans if they need to do so in order to attend college. Therefore, a loan like the federal PLUS loan through the federal government and U.S. Department of Education makes it easy for you, as a potential college student, to use your parents' line of credit in order to gain financing options for your higher education.
Distance Learning, Online Education, Electronic Education, Electronic Learning?Call It What You Want

Online Nursing Degree For Busy Nurses
Many who work in the healthcare or nursing industry know without question that free time (time within which to relax and call your own) is at a premium. In this regard, they work in extremely demanding jobs: both in terms of the jobs they do and the hours on the job they spend.
I always dreamed of going to school and getting a degree in something I'd love to do. I had plenty of dreams, and I wanted to pursue them. With working most of your life, going to school would have to be a very big sacrifice, especially if you have a husband or children to handle. I could have entered school when I was younger, but the demands of working, marriage, and children took precedent over my life. Also, there's no energy left after you deal with the domestic part of your life. You have enough power of energy to get into bed, and hopefully sleep until you get up tomorrow and follow the same tedious pattern all over again. Going to school to educate myself onto a professional level of expertise; to do something more enjoyable for myself, had to be on the back burner of my school dreams; I had other priorities to worry about. Fortunately, school was never far from my mind or brain, and it constantly nagged me like a bad hair day, or a migraine headache waiting to harm me to the end of my rope. If something is truly meant for you to accomplish, then there's no stopping that road to that path. At one point in my life, I was contented. I knew when the right time presented itself, I was going to school. The right time came when I was in my forties, believe it or not. Also, remember that you're never too old to go back to school. School is for anyone and everyone, and age is just a number which doesn't matter at all. Can you handle it mentally and physically is the answer?
After presenting these ideas at the NAREN (National At-Risk Education Network) in Wisconsin last week, I was asked to write an article that would be able to reach more people to spread the exciting word about Dr. William Glasser's work in the area of Quality Schools.
Do Best Friends Make the Best College Roommates?
Do best friends make the best college roommates? Not always! It's amazing how the quirky things you used to like about your best friend can begin to drive you crazy when you're around it 24/7. Just because you've been friends since grade school doesn't mean you should live together.
