What college or university have you attended or are you attending? Also, what was your reason for attending that school?

How prestigious is it?

Right now I go to Weber State University. I am Majoring in Zoology and Minoring in Business.

The reason for my Zoology major is due to my ambition to become an Opthalmologist. At WSU, they don't have a program in which I can declare my major as Optometry, so I must declare it within a medical program. Thus, me having to attend the University of Utah for that, which I will next fall.

The reason for my Business minor is for a fall back, mainly, and potentially create a business based on my opthalmology career.
WSU, the school that I'm attending now, is prestigious in their business and automotive programs. The school that I will later attend (the U of U, most prestigious university in Utah) is based more around the medical field, and many other programs, as well as business.

I expect to finish my schooling and residency in about 7-8 more years.

I've got two. The University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and The University of Chicago. I studied Anthropology at Michigan. They have arguably the #1 ranked Anthro department. Chicago is Michigan's biggest rival for the #1 spot in Anthro. That's why I applied there. I ended up studying a different social science, but it was a good time anyway lol

Michigan is called a "public Ivy," which is the name given to a few highly ranked/prestigious public universities in the US. Chicago is always ranked in the top ten, although less publicly recognized than the others in the top ten. (Although they had a 40% increase in applicants this past year, so that's changing) Both Michigan and Chicago are well respected among academics and high level government officials.

Aside from their academic strength, I applied to these universities because I lived in Michigan at the time and wanted to stay close to family.

Lancaster University Management School (MBA). It's up there in the rankings, hence choosing their programme.

Well, I graduated from the ITESM.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monterrey_Institute_of_Technology_and_Higher_Educa tion

Somehow prestigious institute in Mexico... Very popular among the business community, for its - as usual with private Educ. in Mexico - anticommunist stance.

(Which doesnt prevent that you could learn about it later, as in my case :laughing: )

Right know, I want to enter here...

There are 2 definitions I know of. Basically the school you graduated from, like your hometown school, such as, ambridge high school is my alma mater. It is also a school song.
