Despite the fact that my most recent post on course-notes.org discussed reasons  "why the infamous all-nighter is a terrible idea," I would like to share some advice for those of you that will, without a doubt, pull numerous all-nighters in the coming years.  

So you're procrastinator... The good news, so are millions of high school and college students across the country. By all accounts, you're not unique in your inability to get ahead on assignments and more often than not, you'll be "forced" to stay up late either cramming for an exam or attempting to complete a six page paper you were assigned more than a month ago.

While it's been years since I graduated high school back in 2007, my first-hand experience with the college application process remains vivid in my mind. Between the AP courses/tests, taking the SAT/ACT and the pressures to maintain a competitive GPA, the life of an ambitious high schooler is no doubt, stressful.

My name is Daniel Black and I graduated from Claremont McKenna College in May of 2011 as a dual-major in Economics and Government. I was fortunate enough to spend time working as a "Senior Interviewer" for the Admissions Office which provided me with the opportunity to interview a large number of prospective students.

Obtaining a job as a student is a difficult task, and it is made to be an even greater challenge when you consider that most students don’t have extensive experience or qualifications.  Your typical high school student might have some related classes or volunteering experience, but that’s generally about it- not exactly the stellar resume that one hopes to be able to submit with an applicatio

It doesn’t take a poorly-acted high school movie to point out the academic pressure that high school and university students are under.
