Someone once told me a joke. Never get a bachelor’s university degree, he said. Why? Because once you get a good basic degree, you will remain a bachelor forever. Well, you may start laughing out loud but I can assure you that this is no laughing matter. First of all, getting a bachelors basic degree is a good thing and secondly there are so many people with bachelor’s university degrees these days and there is no link between those who have such a degree and those who have stayed single. I have many friends who have bachelors degrees and most of them are married, some with their own families and kids too!
So what is a good bachelor’s degree? There are many types of such degree out there in the market and they are all based on different disciplines. I guess the most important point that I would like to make is that you should always choose a discipline which you are interested in. I have some people who chose the wrong discipline and for the wrong reasons and they greatly regretted it, first of all because they ended up in a course which they did not like and secondly sometimes they had to apply for a job related to their discipline of study and they later found out that they did not like their job either. So one must always be careful to choose the right degree. It is only with the right degree that you can carve a good career for yourself lam bang dai hoc chinh quy.
I guess many of you might be wondering where to actually get a good bachelor’s degree. After you have figured out that type or course which you want to take up, you got to figure out which university to apply to. If you are good and academically inclined, of course you should try for one of the ivy league universities. If you are interested to do business, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is one of the best places to go to. Then if you plan to do technology, two schools I would recommend are Caltech (The California Institute of Technology) or MIT (The Massachusetts Institute of Technology). If it is something computer related, then it would be Carnegie Mellon University. So if you are good, really you have nothing to worry about because there are so many good universities out there and plenty of great options.
