You Can Get With This or You Can Get With That...

KANYE WEST LYRICS to "School Spirit Skit 2"

You keep it going man, you keep those books rolling,
You pick up those books your going to read
And not remember and you roll man.
You get that a sociate degree, okay,
Then you get your bachelors, then you get your masters
Then you get your master's masters,
Then you get your doctron,
You go man, then when everybody says quit
You show them those degree man, when
Everybody says hey, your not working,
Your not making in money,
You say look at my degrees and you look at my life,
Yeah i'm 52, so what, hate all you want,
But i'm smart, i'm so smart, and i'm in school,
And these guys are out here making
Money all these ways, and i'm spended mine to be smart.
You know why?
Because when i die, buddy, you know
What going to keep me warm, that right, those degrees

I don't know why I posted those lyrics...There are funny as hell...Anyway, so many decisions to make in such a short time...Today I'm taking the time to look up more information on grad school...I plan on getting my masters in Higher Education Administration/Policies Studies...I want to be that cool ass dude on somebody's university staff that understand the struggle of the average college student because I'm that student...These are the school I am looking at (They are not in any typical order);

College of William & Mary (just been added to the list...solid program)
University of Georgia - Athens (goooooo bulldawgs...SEC schools are the much school spirit...great job placement)
University of Wisconsin - Madison (have a great job placement program too)
University of Pennsylvania (have a very diverse program)
Indiana University – Bloomington (I just love this school)
University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill (enough said)
University of Tennessee- Knoxville (the ONE's favorite...right now it is still in the lead...and it is running a strong race)
Georgia State University (they have an alll around good grad school program)
Vanderbilt University (Top 5 in the nation in my program)
Clemson University (pretty well rounded program)

So what do you think? Give me some feedback...I'll keep you posted

Would you really move to Wisconsin?

Jamille said...

I love UNC because Michael Jordan went there.

Mata Hari said...

If you are considering SEC schools then consider The University of Florida. Great grad programs in general and they are the most prestigious school in the South.

What can I say...I am biased..but I will tell you this...if you are looking for diversity then Gainesville isnt the most diverse place to live.

G. Cornelius Harris said...

Yes Kiesha, I would move to Madison if it was the best thing for me...Its only for 2 years...I'll keep you posted

Stephanie said...

Ruby, I like you, girl, but of course, I disagree because I bleed Volunteer orange!!! I am totally biased. You know my top picks, Cornelius. UTK, UGA and William & Mary.

G. Cornelius Harris said...

How about IU?
I'll keep you posted

Being the budget-conscious-ebony-scrooge that I am,
. . . I say, go for the cheapest school.

Ms. CJ said...

I think whatever you do, DON'T go to UGA. They're hicks and you will accomplish NOTHING with a degree from there. Of course I don't like UGA because I'm a [Ga]Techie. But yes, Ga State has a great program as well. But since it says you're from/in Memphis , I suggest that you get out of the south, because the north is where to money is :)

I'd say come to U of M...but i'm not sure if they offer what you're looking for. interesting master's major. i'm happy that you'll be a major player in getting folks in to college. don't forget the skruggles (yes that's struggles with a 'k' meaning MAD struggles) when you get your paper stack'n higher than your eyes can see.
in your words....I'll keep you posted.
