Great Video from Nas Daily on the uniqueness of a higher education in the US. Sometimes it's not about what you want to study, but about finding out what you want to learn!
This is Part 2 of 2 of the Nas Daily College Tour.
Explaining why I chose U.S universities over cheaper ones at home or in Europe was hard to do in a minute. B...ut I gave it a try.
I never understood how the college system works back home. You're supposed to know what field you want to study before you enter college? How does that make sense?
At most schools, you're nothing more than a number. Your grade score and your ID number. But in my U.S application process, I felt like I was more than a number. They asked about dreams, ambitions, teacher recommendation, essays, questions, etc. Oh, and I also had bad grades, but these numbers didn't matter to them.
And once you're in, it doesn't matter what you want to study. You study EVERYTHING. You get a full year to decide what you want to major in. And even after you do that....you can still switch professions after graduation!
Studying in the US was never for the education itself. 1+1 = 2 is true in every country. I...and my sister...prefer U.S education simply because of the freedom it allows you to THINK about what you will be doing for...the rest of your life. That's big.
Remember, this is about my personal experiences in trying to decide where I should personally study 7 years ago. If colleges in Uganda or Canada have the same US system, then that's great. I would have applied too. I just didn't know about that when I was about to head to college and I was only exposed to Israeli and European systems.
OK. See you tomorrow from Los Angeles -- making my way to Mexico!
