What Now' - College Assesment Every student comes to a point in their academic career when they must ask themselves, what now' For me, the answer to this question was always college, but which one' There are hundreds, and even thousands of colleges to choose from. I always wanted to go to Brandeis University. The school had everything I wanted, but now I realize that it was a very difficult school to get into. Two other schools that sparked my interest were George Washington University and Simmons University. Each of these schools has its? own charm and different surroundings. Brandeis University is a co-ed school in Waltham Massachusetts (Brandeis 1). Tuition is about $25,000 a year plus room and board. The school is a private school that was founded in 1948 by the American Jewish Community (Brandeis 6). I would consider this school a reach due to the high competitively and the high SAT scores needed to be accepted (Baron?s 720).
Brandeis also offers my major, Politics. The school has around 1348 men and 1730 women enrolled as full time students each year. The school is also very diverse with people from different nations, races, and religious backgrounds. This is very important to me because I want to be able to experience life with all different kinds of people. I want to be able to meet new people and learn their ways of life in hopes to improve mine. Brandies also guarantees housing for all four years of school. (Baron?s 720-721) A campus life is very important. The assurance of being able to live on campus helps with not having to worry about where I will live for 4 years. The learning environment at Brandeis is one that has 95% of teachers with Ph.D. and a 10 to 1 student to teacher ratio. 61% of the faculty is male and 39% is female. In addition, the classes at Brandeis are small, about 17 students per class. (Baron?s 720-721) This is very important in a college because many students learn better in colleges with smaller classrooms and more attention. Brandeis also offers many internships and studying abroad that are available to its? students. A further advantage to Brandeis is that ?students may cross register with Boston College, Boston University, Tufts University, Wellesley College, Babson College, and Bently College (Baron?s 722)?. Brandeis offers a very large array of financial aid. Of the students in the class of 2003, 70% received merit or need based financial assistance. The average need based grant was $13,583. The total amount of need based financial aid was $6.8 million. The total amount of merit based grants was $2.6 million. (Brandeis 6) Although the financial aspect of going to college is not one that I will have to worry about, these statistics show that the financial aid from Brandies could help those who really need it. Financial aid can sometimes play a big part in deciding where to go to college. In addition to the great academics at Brandeis, there are also many fun clubs, organizations, and sports to join.
A few of these that I would consider important in my college career that Brandeis offers include, Hillel, a Jewish group, the Pre-law society, the Israeli dance troupe, and the Republicans Club. (Brandeis 4) Each of these organizations would help me stay focused on my beliefs and ambitions. Overall, Brandies University is a school that I would love to attend. Everything from its academics, to its extra curricular activities are great. Brandeis is also my dream college. The only problem is that it is a reach school for me (and most of the nation). Another school that I am interested in attending is George Washington University. George Washington is located in Washington DC. The tuition is about $28,000 per year plus room and board. George Washington has a 49% acceptance rate and is considered a difficult school to get into due to the large number of applicants. George Washington has 8168 students enrolled in its? undergraduate programs. This gives the school a great and diverse student body, in addition to its great academics. George Washington is a private school that was founded in 1821. George Washington?s Columbian School of Arts and Sciences has my preferred major, political science. (George Washington 31) The school also has a pre-law advising program that would help steer me towards my future career and graduate school plans. The learning environment at George Washington is one that has 92% of the professors with Ph.D.s, and a 13 to 1 student to teacher ratio. The average lecture class size is 32 students. The average regular class size is 22 students. The class sizes at George Washington would be very beneficial to me due to my trouble paying attention sometimes. 70% of the faculty at George Washington is male and 30% of the faculty is female. George Washington also has cross registration available with many other colleges in the area. (Barron?s 413-414) In addition, there are also many internships, work-study programs and studying abroad programs for George Washington students to choose from. George Washington has had internships from places like the White House and the Smithsonian Institute. (George Washington 32) An internship in the White House would help me a lot with my further aspirations to be involved in American politics. George Washington has an extensive financial aid program.
In 1998-1999, 48% of freshmen and 39% of continuing students received some form of need based financial aid. The average freshman was awarded $15,064. George Washington also participates in Profile and FAFSA. (Baron?s 414) Again, financial aid is not the most important aspect of going to a college, but it?s good to know that it is available. In addition to the great academics at George Washington, there are a lot of fun clubs, organizations, and other extra curricular activities to join. Like Brandeis, George Washington has a very strong Hillel. Furthermore, there is a pre-law society, many different sororities, and various dance clubs. (George Washington 10-11) All of these organizations merely accompany all of the sport programs offered at George Washington. The third and final interesting school that I am thinking of attending is Simmons. Simmons is different from all of the other schools because it is an all-female school. Also, Simmons would be a lot easier for me to get into due to the fact that 72% of all of the women that applied to Simmons were accepted in the 2000-2001 school year. Simmons is located in Boston Massachusetts. It was founded in 1899 as a private institution. There are approximately 1090 women enrolled as full-time undergraduates. Simmons has my preferred major of political science and many courses that compliment that major. It costs about $19,000 plus room and board to attend Simmons. (Baron?s 750) Simmons location is one that intrigues me most. It is in the heart of Boston. Unfortunately, Simmons is more of a city college and does not really have a campus. The learning environment at Simmons is one that has 80% of teachers with Ph.D.s and a 9 to 1 student to teacher ratio. 30% of the faculty is male and 70% of the faculty is female. All teachers teach and do research.
An average lecture class size is about 50. Regular coarse classes have about 16 women in each class. Unfortunately, I do not like the fact that classes may get up to around 50 students. This is a downside to this school. On the upside, Simmons allows cross registration with many colleges such as the New England Conservatory of Music, and Hebrew, Emmanuel, Wheelock Colleges, Massachusetts College of Art, and the Wentworth Institute of Technology. (Baron?s 720-721) This will allow student s to take classes that might not be offered at Simmons, and still use the credits from that coarse as part of their graduation credits. At Simmons, one of the schools ambitions is to get the student ready for the real world. As part of this philosophy, Simmons has an extensive internship program. Some of the more recent internships that Simmons students have received include AT&T, Fleet Bank, The World Affairs Council and The New England Aquarium. (Simmons 3) Simmons also gives political science majors the option of spending a semester at American College in Washington D.C., so they can experience American politics. Simmons, as have Brandeis and George Washington, offers financial aid as well. More than 70% of Simmons students receive some form of financial aid. Scholarships, loans and grants are widely available, in addition to the FAFSA. Finally, Simmons also offers academic merit grants as well. (Simmons 3) Many of the students that receive financial aid at Simmons, receive it based on merit and financial aid. Along with the great educational aspects of Simmons, there are also over 50 clubs and organizations. Two of these that are of interest to me include the modern dance club and the pre-law organization. (Simmons 6) Unfortunately, Simmons does not have one of the most important aspects that my future college must have, a Hillel.
After learning so much about these three colleges, I would most like to go to Brandeis. Brandeis has everything that I could ever ask for in a school. A small population of students, my major, a Hillel, and most importantly, it is not that far away from my home. As an added bonus, Brandeis has an Israeli dance troupe and a Republicans? Club. All in all, I hope to go to Brandeis. I believe that it will send me on the right path to my future. I. Introduction: What colleges are of interest to me. V.
