If I were to design the next CUNY School, I would try to get funding from other sources. Every student would not have to pay tuition. It would be similar to Coopers Union. SAT scores would not be a factor in getting accepted. It would be a first come first serve acceptance. The first 1500 applications would be accepted. Once accepted in the school the students would take an assessment test to figure out in what class they would go: only because it would be easier to pair them with other classmates in the same range. That would give them a better learning experience. The campus would have elite standards.
My main focus at the college would be getting the students on the right track with support and knowledge. Giving them every opportunity to achieve their full potential. Teachers would be there to guide them in anyway possible. I would help get the students internships in various companies to get a feel of the work place.This will give them a better understanding of their career path. Every student will get hired after graduation.
