All of the top 20 “Real” colleges are great. You will be hired based on your skills, connections, personality, experience etc…
I only take issue with the schools that take anyone as long as you can pay. that is why people sometimes think Gaming or animation or Broadcasting and Media are kind of blue collar. It is because of the non-traditonal schools.
The other thing I take aim at is that my two girls worked themselves to deat to get 95+ averages and go to Binghmapton in NYS. they were both wait listed and got in because of their high SAT Scores. My friends kid goofed off in High school and went to a community college for just a year. He received a GPA of and was then accepted in to binghampton. Why the %^&* did my girls bust their heads and these kids get in. It should be required that you finish your . and then have to have a GPA equivalent to the High School grades, and RETAKE the SAT or ACT.
My advice except if you are shooting for IVY league is to shoot for a B in HS don’t stress out, enjoy your teenage years. then go to CC and then transfer. the system is really flawed.
