Find info about WPI subject tests, registering in a technical degree program, and taking free practice tests online. Which college degrees give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Some students select a major because it may be valuable in the workplace. Other students choose their major simply because they enjoy the subject. As the WPI admissions office has to analyze many applications, your goal is to stand out in a good way. Keep your admission's application brief, and stick to the point when answering questions. Subject test dates are posted on the educational testing service website, if you need to take AP subject tests or other equivalency exams.

Admissions officers seek to learn how a given applicant thinks, and what kind of person they are. The most popular college major is business administration, split evenly between men and women. On the other hand, men make up the majority of computer science and engineering majors. For women, the fields of education, English and liberal arts dominate the list. If you choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Online courses foster faculty innovation in teaching, by requiring professors to develop new course materials. Distance education reduces the need for high-priced course textbooks, as many books are now available on Kindle, Google Books, or as shareware.

Online Courses - MOOCs

WPI subject tests
College degree majors with high starting-salaries after graduation include physical sciences, business administration, and engineering. If you remain true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers later on.

Technical training programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year college, and still you may earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. By taking some of your required degree courses online, you may be able to graduate earlier, thus saving money on tuition. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your spare time to advance your career. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

An online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree that was earned on campus. Udemy online learning is a new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon. Similarly, Khan Academy now offers over 4,000 micro-lectures served through YouTube. Coursera, a competing software platform, has millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, MIT announced that it's open courseware platform will be available to students and instructors at no cost.

This section offers practice tests in a variety of academic subject areas. Each of the following multiple-choice tests has 10 questions to work on. No sign-up required, just straight to the test.
 

Admissions Process

Most colleges accept either the SAT or ACT, and have formulas for converting raw test scores. Colleges use these standardized tests because there are substantial differences in curricula, grading, and difficulty among US high schools. One benefit of the ACT test is that it allows the test-taker to select scores to send to specific colleges. ACT test questions are geared towards higher levels of high school mathematics, while the SAT test is a better choice for students with an excellent vocabulary. On average, over half of students retaking the SAT saw improvements in their scores. Further, Advanced Placement exams are offered in a variety of physical sciences, offering you college credit for honors-level classes that you have taken while still in high school. Test yourself with practice exams online, before visiting the College Board website to register to take your actual AP Tests.

Public universities are more likely to evaluate applicants based on grades and test scores alone, while private universities tend to be more holistic. High school grades are the most important factor in gaining admission to the college of your choice. Therefore, maintaining high grades is particularly important for the fall semester of senior year. An ideal academic record is one of increasingly better grades, in courses of progressive difficulty. About half of colleges use a waiting list, and many community colleges have agreements with four-year universities, so that the transfer of credits is ensured.

Financial Aid Information

Government scholarships and grants, combined with private scholarships, only account for a third of total college aid. Loans, earnings, and savings make up the remaining two-thirds. Please note that financial aid deadlines are strictly enforced, so submit your application early. Millions of students that would have qualified for some financial aid didn't even apply for it, or were late in submitting required forms. The official FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov and is free. The earliest that the FAFSA form can be filled out is January of a student's senior year. In contrast, the CSS Profile can be filled out during the preceding fall.

The IRS suggests that parents maintain accurate financial statements, including tax forms and business records, for use when applying for student financial aid. Most private loan programs are tied to one or more financial indexes, such as the BBA LIBOR Rate, plus an overhead charge. Because private loans are based on the credit history of the applicant, the overhead charge may vary. Federal Direct Student Loans, also known as Direct Loans, are funded by the US Treasury. Alternatively, student credit cards may seem like a good short-term solution, but the interest rates are high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. You can get a credit report online by submitting a credit card application, whether you are approved or not. Peterson's scholarship search is good to check not only for college scholarships, but also for the extensive resources on the college application process. While local churches or temples may not have the funding to provide scholarships for all of their congregation, the organization's headquarters may have student scholarships available.





Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, other technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an extensive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as an intern for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

Qualifications for nursing programs vary; learn about the various medical specializations available within technical training programs. Whether in construction, aerospace or electronics, picking the right material for the job involves choosing the best fit among a limited number of options, which often leads to compromises between material strength and weight. Rather than creating entirely new materials, Professor Rashid Abu Al-Rub and his team at the Masdar Institute in the United Arab Emirates, focused on changing the internal geometric structure of familiar plastics, metals, ceramics and composites. Tweaking materials from the ground up allowed the scientists to control their mechanical, thermal and electrical properties in unique ways.
