US College Rankings:

The US News college rankings rely upon data which US News collects directly from colleges and universities, either from an annual survey, or from the school's website. 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

The admissions office wants to know how a given applicant may perform in college, so just be yourself, and work on improving your grades. 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 and is free. Peterson's scholarship search is good to check not only for college scholarships, but also for the extensive resources on the college application process. Most private loan programs are tied to one or more financial indexes, such as the BBA LIBOR Rate, plus an overhead charge. Because private loans are based on the credit score of the applicant, this overhead charge may vary.

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. When Federal student loans enter repayment, they are automatically enrolled in standard repayment. Under it, a borrower has 10 years to repay the total amount of his or her student loan debt.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.
