Programming Is Not Math « Sarah Mei | The Five Year Plan | Scoop.it
When I learned to program, back when dinosaurs walked the earth and the internet had no cats, there was an idea: if you were good at math, you'd be good at programming. I was great at math as a kid, but perhaps because I ...
Rachel Ann Atijera's insight:

After reading this, I learned that programming is more than just math, it's a language. Even though I'm not an expert in math, I still contain the ability to be an excellent programmer if I'm able to learn several programming languages (such as JAVA and C++).

Information about education scholarships

Information about education scholarships | The Five Year Plan | Scoop.it
Want to apply for scholarships? Scholarship search results are just a click away…

Via SchoolandUniversity
Rachel Ann Atijera's insight:

The possible scholarships I can receive are the merit-based, student-specific, and the career-specific (or major specific) ones. I can receive the merit-based ones because I have a high GPA (3.71) and do well in school. I can receive the student-specific ones because I'm minority and have a shot at a Minority Scholarship. In addition, it's possible for me to receive a career-specific one if I can find one that awards those who plan to become a computer programmer.

This article explains the different kind of scholarships that are provided by schools, businesses, institutions, and charitable organizations.  This article will help my specify the kind of scholarships i qualify for and what scholarships i should apply for.  I can use this article as a guideline as a i find scholarships and organize them into categories before starting the application.  I like to be very organized and having this article will help me keep my scholarships organized by what they offer and what kind of scholarship it is.

This article broke down the different type of scholarships that are out there and how to catagorize them. There are 5 types of scholarships that this article explains. I scooped it because it opened my eyes to the multitude of scholarships out there and reassures me that there are many options when it comes to paying for college.

I really liked using this site while looking to win money to finance my college education. I never really understood that there were so many various types of scholarships and opportunities to earn money for college. This really helped in figuring out how to apply to each one and understand what each type of scholarship is looking for and how to make myself stand out,

Have nothing for your resume?
Rachel Ann Atijera's insight:

You don't necessarily need to be in an intern (or a former intern) in order to have an advantage over another applicant, when you apply for job and create a resume. Having skills (especially if they're transferable to the job) can be just as good. I've used Processing and Game Maker (both are programming software) and learned their respective coding languages. This means that I have skill in programming and can apply it to a computer science job.

Younger, wealthier students pick community college, bringing expectations @insidehighered

Younger, wealthier students pick community college, bringing expectations @insidehighered | The Five Year Plan | Scoop.it

Paul Fain notes in Inside Higher Ed that as more "weathier" students choose to begin at community colleges, they are bringing with them expectations about student services, amenities, and eventual transfer.

Rachel Ann Atijera's insight:

I can relate to these students since my parents make over $100,000, but I plan to go to a community college (then transfer to a four-year university). I plan to do this because since my family won't be getting a lot of finical aid due to their high overall salary. So going to a community college would be cheaper and I would have less student debt.
