Wise words from Jay Mathews in his post, "Stressed by choosing a college? Read these 5 tips."
Your future success doesn’t depend on whether your grandmother has heard of your college…Those prestigious colleges were good at recruiting students who had the character traits, such as persistence, humor and charm, that produced success in life. But students with those qualities who went to colleges rarely mentioned in the rankings did just as well. It is your character that makes the difference. Work hard, and all will be well."
