    Re: How to Choose the Right Journalism School

    Yes, choosing the right school is not easy. Thank you for the article. In addition to the courses, there is necessary to write and practice a lot. For example, I often choose something from compare and contrast essay topics in order to take the already prepared topic and write about it. It's easier when you are a bit versed in a certain field.
