Graduate school applications are expected to surge higher than usual in the next year.
Some people, like President William Perry, believe the current economy and unemployment of the state could be partially to blame for the rush of applications.
"People take the opportunity to enhance their resume, and one way to do that is through graduate study," Perry said.
Barry Hudek , an English instructor is one person who is working on his graduate school application to get a doctorate degree in American literature and concentrate on modernism.
Hudek's specific interest in literature and modernism is focused around the era of 1900-1930. He would like to focus a lot of his work on the writer William Faulkner and his novels.
Hudek said his attraction to this era is based on the cultural, economical, and title changes of the era. He also said he likes the literary approaches and experimental nature of the people in that time period.
"Faulkner is also all about history and still speaks to the degree that I still have, and I think that's part of my interest in that era as well," Hudek said.
Most graduate programs require future students to take an exam called the GRE.
In 2009, the ETS, administrator of the GRE, said the number of people taking the GRE increased by over 9 percent to 675,000 people, according to Russell Schaffer, senior communication manager of Kaplan, Inc.
Even if some liberals would remain skeptical, getting Clinton’s backing on the agreement would be helpful to the administration. So few Democrats, particularly in Washington, are backing the tax deal that at the White House has taken to e-mailing reporters when any Democrat expresses support it, even noting the endorsement Thursday of the mayor of Kokomo, Ind.
The former president is very popular among Democrats, and his support could help Obama persuade other Democrats to back it as well.”
Comment: Wow! I have to word my feelings very carefully to meet the requirements of Marxist-Democrat Party rules of political correctness. (If Mr. Obama were Barry Obama rather than Barack Hussein, I would be free me to write more freely, I would describe Barry as America’s first “Boy” president. I am not allowed to do that because the Democrat Left owns the definition of the word when it is used to describe anyone of darker skin. I have been told by those who determine political correct rules that this is a fighting word.
Blondie Bill Clinton could have been called a boy president somewhat accurately, for his uncontrolled escapades escaping Hillary. Many Americans wished him luck…..I admit, I was one.
“Graduate student president” is a better description of Obama as president anyway. It is simply more accurate more often. This graduate student was never prepared to become President of the United States. He is not growing rapidly on the job, either.
Perhaps Americans have forgotten Barry Obama has never been much more than a college student, even when he was supposed to be a lawyer. NEVER! He has belonged to the pampered.
Yet, this college graduate student is trying…..His narcissism overwhelmed him the other day when he dictated “HIS” package to his fellow Democrats and the American public. He had won many concessions…..and the debt was increased to his satisfaction as well as the satisfaction of those who want to see America bankrupted.
Now this college graduate student president is being sassed by professional politicians, some wily and jealous of his position, within his own Party.
He is foreign to compromise, so he doesn’t know what to do, so he calls in “DAD”……actually, if he weren’t president, one might say, it is rather cute……… I am a father and I love it when I can become helpful to others, especially those in my own family.
