The Top Universities of the World – Updated 2017

updated 10/8/2017

top unis


For over 20+ years, I’ve analyzed the many lists and surveys* about the Top Universities in the United States (and quite possibly the “World”).

The U.S. rankings have become almost the default list of schools for “the world”, but we should never forget that we live in a very connected society these days where not just one country dominates the rankings (interestingly though, you’ll notice some interesting names in the following information.  Have you heard of “Visvesvaraya Technological University”?)

However, what do we seriously mean by the “Top Universities?” Continue reading

2017 Father’s Day Brunch at Chambers Bay Golf in Tacoma

*Skip to the bottom, if you’re looking for the link to the page on where to reserve for your fathers day brunch.  

If you’re like me, I had a heck of a time trying to find where to reserve for Father’s Day Brunch at Chambers Bay Grill this year (2017).  When I searched for phrases like “fathers day chambers bay 2017” or “fathers day brunch chambers bay,” I would get links to the Grill or how to reserve tee times for the infamous local golf course.  I even found a link to their facebook page for fathers day brunch in 2014.

College Admissions & Boarding School Admissions Results 2017

This past year, I hung up my hat with helping kids with college and boarding school admissions.  While I can’t say I’m completely done in helping future students get into the schools of their dreams, I migrated back to the field which I feel comfortable with while taking care of the boys.

However, while focusing on SEO & SEM for the past 3 months, I’ve been hearing from past students receiving word of their acceptances.  Honestly, it just feels good to hear them have great options to take here this fall.

College Admissions Results

Some of them include:

My most recent news from a student who tried to call me multiple times in the wee hours of the morning because he got into the #2 Psychology program in the U.S.  John will be attending UCLA in the fall and joining their department of Psychology.

The Perfect Bio for Brandon Na

 Over the years, I’ve been asked to present myself in the best way possible for my companies to leverage my experience and expertise in the various areas I’ve excelled at.  Sometimes it’s hard “wording” (or articulating) how you want to present yourselves.  So, I decided to share some of the examples I’ve written for any modeling you might want to use in your budding careers.  

My first draft: 

Digital Marketing Bio v1:


Always focusing on “marketing efficacy,” Brandon has helped companies sell from $50 million USD to as high as $500 million USD through search marketing and other digital solutions.  He has helped simplify what Sergei Brin and Larry Page original designed in the late ’90s to now what has become the most ubiquitous tool in connecting consumers and businesses.  Prior to Zuckerberg’s social network dominating the world, Brandon had envisioned and mapped out the social sphere and like the many technologies he’s been keeping up with since ’93, he stays on top of every potential lever possible to drive businesses forward.

Brandon’s expertise spans across multiple digital disciplines inclusive of: Search Engine Optimization, Content Marketing, Website Analytics, Facebook Marketing, LinkedIn Marketing, Continue reading

What do you call someone who’s a waste of time?

Another great question from my student: “What do you call someone who’s a waste of time?”  He was asking in reference to understanding what students are called when they are lazy or basically the opposite of what most parents want.


Here are a few…

Reverse Dictionary for “Someone Who’s a Waste of Time”

“Deadbeat” comes to mind and feels the best. Continue reading

SAT vs ACT – The Keywords Story

This past year, we saw a huge shift in interest for the college entrance exam, the SAT.  The once default test most juniors in high school would take no longer was popular – at least jot as popular as the ACT.

In 2011, the ACT for the first time had more test takers than the SAT and it has only grown since.  The numbers for this past school year will be released after the last exams are taken in June. However, I expect the Gao to be the largest ever.

Well, the search numbers also reflect this change:
