My College Advisor Partners with YouScience to Help Students Choose their Major.

New upgrade to College Planning introduces We have partnered with YouScience. for popular College Planning.

Wexford, United States - January 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

My College Advisor, a Pittsburgh area College Planning firm, has announced a new upgrade to their popular College Planning program.

Their college planning curriculum includes everything from choosing a college major, SAT/ACT test prep, building the college list, applications and essay workshops, and of course Financial aid.

We have partnered with YouScience. Their patent pending algorithm uses “brain games” to determine the student’s aptitudes and interest. The results are used to make the highest quality career and educational recommendations. The assessment takes about ninety minutes for the student to complete and results and recommendations are usually completed in a day or two. The counselor at My College Advisor then talks through the recommendations with the student to help them make decisions on career and college major.

Proper college planning is essential in today’s competitive admissions process. An often overlooked but important part of the plan is choosing a college major. Nearly 80% of college students change majors, on average three times. One of the main reasons for this is that there is never any serious thought put into the decision.

Aptitudes are the most important consideration to making career and educational decisions. – Everyone is made up of a combination of innate qualities, or aptitudes. Think of it as your hard-wired potential. Some people call these “talents” or “strengths”. It is important to understand that these abilities are distinct from interests, personality and skills, all of which can change over time. Because aptitudes are stable in nature, they can serve as a reliable navigational tool throughout a lifetime of decisions. Understanding your aptitudes arms you with special knowledge to better confront an ever-changing set of circumstances and challenges.

For instance, do you often see relationships between seemingly unrelated information? Do you make plans in your head or do you need pen and paper to see things clearly? Do you think literally, or translate information into images to conceptualize problems? In a team environment, will you add the most value as a specialist with specific skills or as a generalist who can manage the big picture? All of these questions and many more can be answered when you are offered a real evaluation of your innate abilities. While pursuits for which you do not possess a strong set of aptitudes are still achievable (motivation and effort can often overcome misalignments), understanding your natural abilities is a blueprint for maximizing your opportunities for satisfaction and success.

These are different than the assessments given by schools or available for free online. – Most other assessments are based on self-reported personality or interest surveys. YouScience’s aptitude assessments use real ability exercises that can not be studied or gamed. The results provide reliable information about your areas of high potential

Bill Porti, Independent Educational Consultant, had this to say:

This is a very valuable tool for students that are undecided on their major. It’s also great for those students who have already picked an area of study, to confirm that they are making a good decision.

Trump's shutdown solution hangs in limbo

Jan 22, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's proposal to break through the budget deadlock appeared to be gaining little traction Monday, as another missed paycheck loomed for hundreds of thousands of workers and the partial federal shutdown stretched into its fifth week. Despite the fanfare of the president's announcement and the rush to release the legislative package late Monday, voting in Congress was not expected to unfold until later in the week. Even then it seemed doubtful that the 1,300-page "End The Shutdown And Secure The Border Act" released by Senate Republicans had any chance of passing swiftly. Republicans hold a 53-47...

PHOENIX — Two doctors who cared for an incapacitated woman who gave birth as a result of a sexual assault are no longer providing medical services at the long-term care center in Phoenix. Hacienda HealthCare says Sunday that one has resigned. The other has been suspended. The victim in her 20s had been in Hacienda's care since she became incapacitated at age 3 after suffering a near-drowning. She gave birth Dec. 29. The sexual assault triggered a police investigation and reviews by regulators. Hacienda CEO Bill Timmons resigned after news surfaced of the assault. Investigators gathered DNA from men who...

MLK holiday offers stage for Democratic hopefuls

Jan 22, 2019

COLUMBIA, S.C. — As Americans commemorated Martin Luther King Jr., Democratic presidential hopefuls fanned out across the country to honor the civil rights leader and make themselves heard on the national stage. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., used the holiday to launch a presidential campaign that, if successful, would make her the first woman and the second black candidate to become president. Former Vice President Joe Biden accepted responsibility for his part in the passage of 1980s legislation that toughened sentences for crack cocaine possession, "a big mistake" because of its damage to the black community. In a fiery speech in...

2-for-1: Total lunar eclipse comes with supermoon bonus

Jan 22, 2019

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The only total lunar eclipse this year and next came with a supermoon bonus. On Sunday night, the moon, Earth and sun lined up to create the eclipse, which was visible throughout North and South America, where skies were clear. There won't be another until the year 2021. It was also the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position. The entire eclipse took more than three hours. Totality — when the moon's completely bathed in Earth's shadow — lasted an hour. During a total...

AP FACT CHECK: Trump's murky claims on weather, shutdown

Jan 22, 2019

WASHINGTON — There's nothing like a cold snap to bring out the global-warming skepticism of President Donald Trump. The fact that periods of extreme cold happen in a warming climate is well known by his government but Trump's crack Sunday — "Wouldn't be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!" — suggests that hasn't sunk in for the president. Over the past week and through the weekend, Trump and his team misstated the reality on myriad issues, many connected with the partial government shutdown, Trump's proposed wall and the Russia investigation. Here's a...
