College - January 25th 2011, 01:52 AM

I know I'm still pretty young to be thinking about college already, but I watched as high school flew by for my brother (Heck, I can't even believe that my freshman year is almost over, it feels like I just started school about a month ago and now we're choosing classes for next year O.o) and I want to make sure that I'm prepared for when I graduate and go off to college. So my question here is; does anyone know any good colleges for majoring in English?

Firstly, I want to applaud you for thinking about this so early. It gives you a lot more time to relax come the time when you actually do need to decide.

As for the colleges majoring in English, it depends a lot on where you want to go. Like, are their certain states that you are interested in? Do you want it public or private? (If private, do you want it religion orientated or not?)

There are a lot of different factors in choosing a college.
Also, depending on which state you live in, they have special websites to help with that sort of thing.

Like, I went to High School in Oregon. And in Oregon, we used http://oregoncis.uoregon.edu/home/ and it had a quiz type thing where you decide what area you want to go to college in, what size school, what type, what majors, stuff like that and then it gives you a list of colleges.

You may actually be able to use that site even if you aren't in Oregon. I don't know, but it's worth a shot.

I hope I helped at least a little. You can PM me anytime dear.

Thanks
I would probably stay in Illinois for the state because I know the if you go out of state the tuition is a lot higher. As for public or private, I really have no preference.
My school gave us a website, but I forgot the address. Maybe I'll find it on the school website.

Sadly, I don't think that you can get onto that site. I tried to see if I could make a new account but I think that it is only able to be done if you go to high school in Oregon.

However, I did a quick search for you.

There are plenty of excellent English departments in schools across the country. The list you've been given above is a great starting point. And actually, if you have the grades and standardized test scores, you could even think about Ivy League colleges. All the Ivies provide need-based financial aid to the students they accept these days, so you could get a significant financial aid award and end up paying a LOT less than the ~$50,000 sticker price. Of the Ivies, I know Yale and Brown have particularly strong English programs.

Are you willing to travel abroad to Canada? As a Canadian myself, I'd recommend UBC or University of McGill; probably two of the more prestigious universities in Canada. Getting into them would certainly be considered an accomplishment! To answer you question, their English departments are strong too.

Man, highschool flew past for me.

Just study what you can do, what you're good at. Not what you WANT to be good at, cause if you do something you enjoy and that you're good at, you'll enjoy it more. Goodluck!


Don't judge others, if you can't judge yourself.

I don't want to live To waste another day Underneath the shadow of mistakes I made Cause I feel like I'm breaking inside I don't want to fall and say I lost it all Cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall Leaving pieces of me behind And I feel like I'm breaking inside

Freakshow: I've never heard about Ivies, I'll have to keep an eye out for some. I'll consider Yale or Brown, the only thing I would have a problem with though is being so far away from my family.
Carpe Diem: I've always wanted to travel abroad, so I'll think of possibly going to Canada too. Though like I said before, I would miss my family too much.

Some of Northwestern and University of Chicago's college progams rivals the highly respected Ivy league schools.

Also english degree is too popular your gunna have to compete with so any people. Its not a useful degree.
