A wise man once said, “Education is not a preparation for life, education is life itself”. That man was John Dewey. He presented the world with a touch of insight and while some didn’t understand what he meant with his quote, he allowed some to use their imagination and in that same breath, allowed people to imagine all that life could be if you had the knowledge. This indeed made a difference in how some thought of education and everything it could bring to not only your life but the world as a whole too.

Education could change the way society thinks and slowly but surely shape a nation to be better, do more and above all else, create something they never could’ve before.

The possibilities are endless in your persistence to try.

Choosing a university

When it comes to education, choosing the right university and field of study might be one of the biggest decisions you ever make in your life. With that being said, there are countless of universities that are ranked amongst the best. You’ve probably heard of some of the most elite, which includes Stanford, Yale, MIT and Princeton to name a few, but which one is the right fit for you? You have to choose wisely. This might be a three to five, or even longer if you want to study forever, decision.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

If you want to go to the best university in the U.S., you’re looking at MIT which is not only considered the most successful university in the past six years in America, but also the one everyone wants to go to. Followed by its powerful reputation, having this university listed on your resume one day might just help you get that perfect job. Plus, the experience is one you’ll never forget.

Harvard University

Referring to American television, Harvard is a name that often pops up and is also considered both a national and international favourite. Many non-Americans also dream of going to Harvard and make their way across the waters of the world to get their degree at this very elite institute. It was listed as the second-best university in the world two years ago and have now dropped to number three. Nevertheless, it still remains the best in our eyes. It also has one of the best reputations in the world.

Stanford University

Stanford is the one university that is always being competitively compared with Harvard. In fact, many individuals that choose a university, if they get accepted, struggle to choose between these two elite institutions. Based in Silicon Valley, Stanford also comes boarder-line close to competing with its competitor, MIT and ranks as the top for locals to attend. Its only flaw might be that it has a low international student acceptance ratio.

California Institute of Technology

Also referred to as Caltech, this university is considered one of the best in the U.S. alongside its competitors. Being situated in California though, definitely adds to its charm. Fancy a book paired with a sunset? Caltech has also proven continuous growth throughout the years and has reached a strong status of competitiveness when it comes to choosing the best university in the U.S.
