Over the years, I’ve attended a significant number of quality institutions of the educational variety. Like most institutions, once you arrive at a school you start working to break yourself out. Some call it graduating, but all I know is I escaped sooner, with less debt, and without that heavy piece of
evidence paper weighing me down!
Still, I must admit that at least some of these schools imbibed some educational material in me, some more than others. I’ll be the first to admit that some of the best learning moments of my life happened outside the classroom, whether it was walking around the City of Boston while (rarely) skipping class at the Boston Latin School or just hanging out in my dorm at the U. of Southern California and meeting all kinds of random and diverse people from all over the world, to driving through little country towns in North Carolina during my time at Chapel Hill, I realized life is too hectic to spend in a classroom. If you don’t get out there and start living it doesn’t matter how many degrees you stack up!
So, without further ramblings and justifications from this well traversed mind, here are the top five best schools I’ve attended, judged from an educational standpoint.
- Northeastern University
- University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- University of Massachusetts at Amherst
- University of Southern California
- Boston Latin School
Now, I can see how that list might be surprising to some, but I assure you 80-90% of the BLS alumni reading this list are nodding their heads, going yup.
