Picking The Right Marketing School
Picking a school or college is just as important as picking your degree. You should try to pick somewhere that is perfectly suited to you; geographically, academically, socially, financially and vocationally.
For most independent, socially confident people, the location of their college does not matter as they’ll be able to get on and fit in with most people. However some people prefer to be closer to their family and friends.
If you plan on travelling back and forth between your college and home then don’t pick a college that is on the West coast when you’re on the East coast. If you do, prepare for the eventual high travel costs.
Don’t Underestimate Yourself
When applying to colleges, most people will only apply for places where they are 99% sure they will be accepted. Don’t narrow your horizons by only submitting ‘safe’ applications.
Apply to a few schools that are big names and have big reputations, the worst that can happen is you get rejected but you might also get accepted. There is no harm in trying but regrets will annoy you forever.
Never forget that the ultimate reason behind getting a degree is to better your job prospects, so take a look at the previous few years post-graduation employment rates, this will give you a clear indication of how highly valued their graduates are.
Whilst it varies from individual to individual, if a school has a really poor post-graduation employment rate then there must be a reason behind that, you don’t want to go to a marketing school that has poor job prospects.
This is the most important factor for most students, as you’re not going to attend a school or college that you cannot afford. Take a thorough look at what financial aid a school can offer you and if that will present a viable schooling option.
The worst thing you can do is set your heart on one place without even considering the financial implications, because if you find out before hand you don’t have enough money, at least you can try to make provisions instead of being stuck.
The student community is something that people rarely take into consideration, even though these are the people that you’ll be spending most of your time with, during however many years your degree will take.
Find out whether the student body will suit your personality, whilst it’s great to mix with people you wouldn’t normally mix with, if you’re very liberal then studying on an extremely conservative campus may present issues.
The student-to-faculty ratio is the amount of student compared to the amount of lecturers and professors. Usually smaller classes means for a better experience over all, not just in terms of learning.
However some people are more suited to medium to large classes and will thrive with larger numbers. This is another pivotal factor when choosing a college or school, as class sizes massively affects your experience.
Extra-curricular activities are one of the best ways to socialize and take your mind off of studies, and no, I’m not just talking about partying. If you’re very sporty or really social, find out what’s on offer.
Whilst most people only consider the academic and career advantages of school, it can be the extra-curricular activities that are people’s fondest memories. It’s not the most important aspect when picking a school but it’s something to consider.
