Going to college is a unique academic experience. That's why many students find choosing a college so intimidating. To make the selection process easier for you, follow the tips below.

How to Choose the Perfect College for You

  1. To begin this process, know what your interests and abilities are. This will give you a direction to go in since you'll know to look for schools that cater to them.
  2. One thing is what you can do, and another thing is what you prefer and need to do. For instance, if you love acting, search for a college with a great theater program.
  3. Of course, you should also consider the financial side of things: how much money can you spend on college and where will you get that money.
  4. After you've taken the three points above into account, create a shortlist of colleges that fit those parameters. This will narrow down your options.
  5. The next step is researching every single school on your shortlist. Getting to know more about them will help you make an informed decision.
  6. An important part of the selection process is visiting the campuses of your top schools. Notice their installations and if you click with them and the town they're in.
  7. If you're an ambitious student looking to meet like-minded people, note what kind of networking you could do at those colleges. For instance, notice who they have on staff.
  8. You can read and research all you want, but listening to someone's experience will give you a new perspective. To that end, interview teachers and past and current students.
  9. By now, you should have two or three contenders. To narrow it down further, make a pros and cons list for each one. This will help you organize your thoughts and compare the colleges.
  10. Lastly, consider how you feel about the colleges you're interested in. If you don't think one will suit you, it should be enough for you to disregard it.
