August 29, 2012: Graduate Programs is proud to introduce http://www.graduateprograms.com, an online destination for prospective students to explore graduate school programs with information from the most reliable source: their peers.

At Graduate Programs, students will find information about graduate programs across a wide spectrum of fields; test requirements and study tips; how to write the perfect personal statement; how to nail the interview; what to do if a student is denied admission to graduate school, and other crucial advice for potential and current graduate students.

The website will provide a space for current students to share their thoughts about their graduate program through a Rate and Review. Students will choose the number of stars that accurately corresponds with their opinion about aspects of the program—athletics, campus housing, etc.—and then leave a short comment. We’ll compile student comments and starred reviews so students can read them when they’re making their decisions about different graduate programs. Think of it as a forward-thinking marriage between the Princeton Review and Yelp.

“We’re really excited about this launch. There’s no other website like ours to provide students with peer-reviewed graduate programs. And really, no one knows better than other students about whether a program is the right fit,” said Harvey Berkey, chief operating officer of Graduate Programs.

The design of the site is clean and intuitive. It’s made for young people on the go. Students will be able to rate on a scale from one to ten stars their graduate programs in the areas most important to those in graduate school: Academic Rivalry, Athletics, Campus Housing, Campus Safety, Campus Food Services, Career Support, Education Quality, Extracurricular Activities, Faculty Accessibility and Support, School Use of Technology, Social Life, Student Diversity, Surrounding City/Town, and Transportation. Then, students can leave a short comment.

Thus, http://www.graduateprograms.com will provide colleges and universities a place to reach students in a new way. Students can post their photograph along with their comments and schools can post photographs and videos of their institution and shape their image for students.

Domain Name Leasing
by Christopher Menkin
 
Yes, one of the fastest growing niches is leasing of domain names. With "pay per hit" making Google and others very profitable, new sites and their names are now "personal property." They are going for very high prices with companies willing to pay high implied interest rates to acquire their use (remember, it is not who owns it that makes a profit, but who uses it.)
