Have questions about college?

If you’ve narrowed your choices down to a few schools you think might love, how do you pick the right one? The truth is, there isn’t a magic formula or ranking system to determine that for you. Rather, it’s a question of finding the perfect fit.
Time for a Test Drive
One of the first things you should do when thinking about attending a college is visit it. Most colleges offer guided campus tours and information sessions during the school year. You can find out the schedules of these events by checking out the college’s admissions web site. Getting to know the college this way is a good method for getting as much first hand information as possible.
If you have already been admitted, you may want to attend the programs colleges often have for admitted students. These are often weekend-long events with an array of activities to help you get to know the school better. You will also be able to meet students there and talk to them about their experience.
A Thorough Bit of Research
Although seeing the school for yourself is a good way to find out if it is a good fit for you, you should also consider the cold hard facts about the potential college of your choice. With a bit of online searching, both on the college’s web site and outside of it, you should try and gather the information about the school that’s important to you. What is the graduation rate? What majors do they offer? How easily do graduates find employment? With this information in mind, you’ll be sure to make a good decision.
