“I want to be the President of the United States!” is no longer an acceptable answer to the dinner table question: “What are you going to be when you grow up?” Increasingly as I grew older, the question turned from who I was going to be to what I was going to do. As a political science major, I am constantly asked which party I belong to, what I think of Obama’s healthcare policy, and whether or not I’ll be pursuing law school. The frequency of the limited range of these questions reflect the common misunderstandings related to my major. I first heard of the term “political science” during my senior year of high school.
Testimonials:from the BetterGrads network:
"The diverse nature of the panel, their enthusiasm and use of personal examples kept every student in the audience engaged. Students at GHS received more than the traditional counselors' messages: they got personal examples, and heard of opportunities at the collegiate level that counselors just haven't had the time to address."– Roxann Engel, Academic Guidance Counselor, Granada High School
