Selecting your University

College Students

Which schools should you apply to? What factors should you consider? This is a complex decision - a lot of factors go into making this decision. And there may not be a 'right' vs. 'wrong' answer - it depends on what your preferences and goals are. Taking a tour of the campus, or talking to faculty / current students can help make your decision easier. 

 

Here are a few factors to consider ...

Location

How fare are you willing to go? What are your constraints?

Cost

Higher education is expensive, especially if you are paying out-of-state or private college tuition.

Urban / Rural

A small town University vs. one in a major city center - your experience will be very different. 

Academics

Pick a University that offers the specialization your are looking to pursue

Size

Different Universities have different enrollment size. You may feel comfortable with certain type of school.

Fit

Sometimes you might just develop rapport with the school. And you may not be able to explain why!

Picking your school will be one of the most important decisions of your life. After all, you will spend 4 of the most critical years of your career. So, make sure you do your research!
