Student Website, Hotcourses USA, Reviews Best US Colleges
(Vocus) September 23, 2010
Hotcoursesusa.com, a new website which allows students to rank their university or college experience has been launched in the US. With over 3,000 student reviews, learners are able to rate their study experience, selection process, tuition costs, and student life as well as providing an âoverall ratingâ for their school. The highest ranked school to date is the University of Houston, with an overall rating of 3.8 out of 5.
In addition to college student reviews, the site provides details on 146,000 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The site also provides website links and inquiry options to 2,700 US colleges and universities making it the largest and most detailed source of program data for students searching for what and where to study.
Hotcoursesusa.com allows for prospective students to search the site for the perfect course program and school to fit individual needs and wants. Students can search by major or specific program, qualifications from associateâs degree to masterâs degree, study mode whether it be campus based or online, as well as by state or zip code. The website also features a shortlist and compare function which allows prospective students to compare up to ten programs or schools side by side at one time.
Hotcoursesusa.com is also useful to those who are just starting to prepare for undergraduate or graduate schools and courses. The site includes extensive tips on tests including the SATs and ACTs for undergraduates and GMATs and GREs for graduates.

Question by John: Do most graduate schools usually accept Ph.D. applicants than master’s degree applicants?
Do most prefer the Ph.D. applicants over the master’s degree applicants even though both had the almost the same GPA and GRE scores? Science programs like biology and chemistry, not the MBA or Education.
I’m thinking about big schools like University of Illinois, University of Penn, University of Michigan, Ohio State, etc.
Answer by eri
Yes, they do prefer PhD applicants (unless they don’t offer a PhD in that field) – the ranking of the school in the graduate program depends on how many PhD students they graduate per year, so they don’t want to waste their time and funding on people who will just leave after two years. If you just want to do the masters, either apply to a masters-only program (there are some out there) or apply as a PhD student and leave with the masters (this is pretty common).

Question by guyatwork37: Can I get into a Master’s program for Wildlife Biology without an undergraduate degree in Science?
When I went to college I majored in Government and Psychology. However, my interest have always been science and I would love to get a Master’s in Wildlife Biology, but do I stand a chance without a Science undergrad background?
Answer by reese m
Yes. Generally, it does not significantly affect what major you studied in your undergraduate when you apply for graduate schools and choose a different major. However, I am certain this general guideline can vary between different requirements of school admissions. So, if I were you, I’d keep in mind that I still can choose a different major from my undergraduate major for my master’s, and at the same time, I’d contact the school’s admission department as soon as possible to make sure whether the major I’ll choose for my master’s should be the same as that of my undergraduate degree.

Question by Jeff: How stubborn are graduate schools when accepting applicants?
I’m a third-year college student and I’m considering furthering my education by getting an MBA. Most graduate schools seem to accept most students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Mine is currently slightly lower than that and I still have time to improve it, but if my GPA is below 3.0 when I obtain my bachelor’s degree, should I be concerned about not getting into grad school?
Answer by David W
If it’s a competitive or selective grad school, forget it.
Otherwise it’s basic supply and demand. They want to fill their slots and make a buck off of you, rather than lose a cent.

Question by Cocobrown: Can I get accepted to a masters in accounting program?
I’m interested in getting a masters degree in accounting. I have a very low undergrad GPA of a 2.3. If I get a really high GMAT score, take one or two accounting courses at a community college, and get good recommendations do you think that there is a chance for me to get accepted? I want to go to Pace University in NYC.
Answer by Kitten
You didn’t mention if you had any work experience. Generally, work experience would definitely improve your chances, beyond that. I would skip taking the Community College classes and take classes as an undeclared major at PACE. Make sure that they are graduate Accounting classes. Perhaps you could take classes for a Professional Certificate that would allow the classes to be applied to a graduate degree. This would do two things for you. It would be concrete proof that you are ready for graduate schools and give you a PACE transcript with awesome grades(because you will make awesome grades) and it will give you the inside track on professors and admissions. You will have a MUCH better chance of gaining entrance to the University this way since your GPA is a considerably low. Also, study like no tomorrow to get an awesome GMAT score and you could be as good as admitted!
HTH and blessings on your journey!
