Job satisfaction, higher salary, and employment security are the main incentives. The most popular college major is business administration, split evenly between men and women. On the other hand, men make up the vast majority of computer science and engineering majors. For women, the fields of education, English and liberal arts dominate the list.

College Admissions

Depending on the schools that you're applying to, the admissions process can vary from a simple formula that weighs grades and test scores, to a subjective review of your entire application. Public universities are more likely to evaluate applicants based on grades and test scores alone, while private universities tend to be more holistic. About half of colleges use a waiting list, particularly those which are more selective, and it's important to remember that almost 30% of wait-listed students are eventually accepted. On average, over half of juniors retaking the SAT as a senior saw improvements in their scores, so test yourself with practice exams online.

Financial Aid

Peterson's Scholarship Search Award Database is drawn from Peterson's college guidebooks. While federal student loans can be discharged for total and permanent disability, private student loans cannot be discharged outside of bankruptcy. Please note that financial aid application deadlines are strictly enforced by the financial aid office. The official FAFSA website is and is free. Student loans typically have variable interest rates while federal student loans have fixed rates. Consumers should be aware that some private loans require substantial up-front origination fees as well.

Federal Direct Student Loans are funded by Treasury bonds. Private student loans, however, are not guaranteed, and are offered directly to students by a commercial bank, employee credit union, or finance company. Student loans saddle graduating students with substantial debt, and can't be dismissed easily. Student credit cards may seem like a good short-term solution, but the interest rates are prohibitively high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. If you do end up using credit cards to meet some expenses, pay off the outstanding balance in full every month, or else you may be subject to sudden interest rate changes.
