College crossroads

— What is your idea of what the perfect college for you might be? Why?
My idea of a perfect college would be one that you can go to and just do classes on the things that you are majoring in, instead of have tons of classes that have no benefit to for your career and more potential to make you fail as a result of your disinterest.
— How much pressure do you feel, whether from parents, teachers, the media or your friends, to get into a selective college? How do you handle that pressure?
There is basically no pressure form any of my friends because basically all of them are going to UMaine or places comparable to it. My family just told me to do what I want and what would make me happy, and up until last year I wasn't going to go to college. 
— In the end, how much do you think it matters where you go to college? Why?
I think for different professions some colleges just have better classes and better prepare you for that career. However things like business,  journalism, and stuff like that you can probably get the same education wherever you go.
