Creighton University

Hi, any discussions about Creighton Uni?

Hi umkhaled! (And anyone else interested). Are you applying to Creighton? My son attends Creighton and will be graduating from the Heider College of Business in May 2019. It’s an excellent school where he thrives and is doing incredibly well. Over the 3 (now going on 4) years, he was able to secure internships on campus and internships back home in CA over the summer. I attribute that to the confidence he gained from Creighton. The professors want you to do well and he never seems to have an issue speaking to any of them. Just some background: He applied to 14 colleges and got into almost all of them. He decided to attend an out-of-state school because he didn’t want a helicopter mom (me!) hovering around. I fully supported him on that decision. (Gotta cut those apron strings!) Also, he wanted to experience life outside of CA. We visited his top choices and he immediately knew Creighton was the right fit for him. (I knew it, too.) I can’t tell you enough how friendly people are in Omaha! We felt so welcome from the start.

My advice is limit your reach schools. Apply to a “for sure” school since it’s nice to get that acceptance letter! And focus on the middle schools. Attend college fairs because they tend to send you ways to apply for free. We didn’t pay for any applications! (Except for the state schools). After acceptance, make sure to visit your top selections because what looks good on paper or the internet might not be the right fit for you.

Sorry for the long message but I hope you or someone else finds it helpful. Go Jays!
