Martina P Mason's insight:

One of my biggest concerns when applying to colleges was and still is trying figure what is a good place for me to play sports and get the education I need to further my career. A huge part of me wants to leave the state for college but I don’t know if that is a good option for me so that is something I’m trying to figure out also. I want a career in Physical Therapy when I graduate from college so I need to find a school that is going to be helpful to me in that sense. I learned that according to this article of the top 10 colleges for health and physical therapy none of those ten schools are in state. So then I think that it may be more beneficial to go out of state like my first instinct. Then again I don’t intend on attending a big university so is this article helpful to me making the decision to leave the state or stay in state.

Martina P Mason's insight:

Is playing a sport in college going to be beneficial to your learning?  I’m concerned with the coaches and athletics priorities in the student athletes because most athletes will not go pro so the purpose, at least in my opinion, of playing a collegiate sport is to get your education paid for and to further a career outside of athletics. But does your education matter and will those priorities change if you are attending a smaller school?

Martina P Mason's insight:

Would applying and attending an all black school be helpful to me getting the best education possible? Being half black gives me a little bit of help when applying to schools since I am usually a minority but if we aren’t getting equal treatment in both the student category and the professor category then maybe attending a school that is all black or mainly black will help me get the best education possible. Also sport wise would I get better treatment attending an all black program?
