Q. I’m heading back to college to start my senior year. Any advice on what electives I should take? -EM
A. Please do as I say, not as I did. Avoid the temptation of easy courses or those closely related to your major. If you are majoring in PR or journalism, consider taking classes in business, marketing, psychology, philosophy, history and English (with an intense focus on writing). In the end, it’s what you know that counts most towards initial success in your career, not your GPA.
