Considering the College Rankings: Forbes vs. US News

usnews-vs-forbes-college-rankingsCollege ranking is controversial, and not just because school pride dictates we consider our college or alma mater the best.

The two reports have fairly different conclusions, so it’s best to consider the different criteria used by each report.

The two reports obviously have different criteria. Forbes specializes in ranking colleges with a high level of student input. The first question in their published criteria asks if students enjoy their classes and overall academic experience. Next they consider how well graduates do in their post-college careers and how many students graduate in four years or less. They do not reveal how they weight the rest of their criteria, but they do say that each counts for less than 20 percent. Read the rest of this entry »

What are the Best Schools in the U.S?

madison square garden college of hoopsNow, this might be a little biased, but I have to say that The University of Oklahoma is the best school in the country.

Okay, it might be a lot biased, but I do have my reasons for thinking this. I also don’t think I’m alone in my belief that my school is the best thing to ever happen to higher education. I’m betting that most college students think their school tops all others. Maybe Harvard has the best swimming team and maybe Rutgers has the best football team.

Every school has its own claim to fame, and now Madison Square Gardens is recognizing that. has created a website for college students to determine which of the 16 Big East schools is the best.

Because Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde” went there, duh.

The 10 Best Fine Arts Schools

artWhat exactly can you do with a Masters degree in Fine Arts? Well, you have three main options:

1. Have you always been gifted with a pencil? Maybe sculpting breathtaking works of art form a mound of clay is more your style. Do you want to be a professional artist? Sure, it might be rough going, financially, but the emotional appeal of doing art for art’s sake is too strong for some creative geniuses.
2. Or perhaps you want to share your gift with others and teach students how to express themselves through art. Imagine helping a kindergarten student trace his fingers and create a turkey for Thanksgiving. Or do you see yourself critiquing the final projects of a senior high school art class and helping them prepare for entrance exams to top art schools?
3. Your final main option is to go into graphic arts. Once you master Photoshop, Paint, Illustrator, or another similar program, you could find yourself creating video games, advertisements, newsletters, pamphlets, and so much more.

So, all of these sounds appealing to you? Then check out US News’ list of the top 10 schools to earn a Masters in Fine Arts degree.
