I am going to be a senior in high school and am having a hard time deciding what colleges to apply to. I really want a big, urban setting school with an intense journalism program and a good city to practice/intern. I am mostly looking at school in the Northeast.
university of md
Does my list look ok? Is there anything I should reconsider or add?
My gpa is a 3.8 and i have SATS in the 1800s
Thanks! Hey there. I know exactly how you feel about choosing the right school. I will be attending DePaul University in the fall as a freshman. I too applied to Northwestern. I had above a 4.0 GPA because of AP classes, almost a 2000 on SATs, and a great extra-curricular record. I was not accepted to NU and I was very upset. But after that, I looked more into DePaul which is right in the city of Chicago and I fell in love with all it has to offer. Journalism and Communications is on of the big popular study areas here. And of course it is a GREAT place for internships being the 3rd largest city in the nation.
Not to totally throw DePaul on you, but it's a great school. With a GPA and SATs that you have, you will get into good schools. And no matter what school you end up choosing, you will be given a great education. Good luck! Hey,
I too am a senior interested in the journalism world for college. I just recently returned from a summer journalism program at Northwestern University. It was amazing and I really feel I got a lot out of it. The Medill School of Journalism is intense and it definetely will be a challenge to get in, but it's always worth a shot.
I'm actually applying to Pratt as well, for the writing program. Although Medill is a great school, you can't avoid the fact that NY is the center of journalism. Definetely consider location.
