As far as your academic life goes, choosing a college is probably one of the most important decisions you'll make. To learn how you can go through the selection process successfully, continue reading.

How to Choose the Perfect College for You

  1. The first thing to think about is what your interests and abilities are. Even if you don't know what you'll major in, this will give you an idea of what direction to go in and what colleges can help you.
  2. After that, consider your preferences and needs. For example, are you an athlete looking for a college with a good sports team?
  3. Going to college costs money, so take your finances into account. Figure out how much money you have for college and where you'll get that money to know what you can afford.
  4. Once you've gone through the steps above, make a shortlist with schools that fit those parameters. Limit yourself to about 5 colleges.
  5. When the shortlist is done, start researching the schools in it. Gather as much information as you can about them so you can make a better decision.
  6. If you can, schedule a visit to the campuses. While you're there, notice their installations and the vibe they give off. Also, get a sense of the towns they're in.
  7. If you want to make the most out of the college you go to, find out if they have a strong network. To that end, look up their teachers and alumni.
  8. Speaking of teachers and alumni, interview a few of them (and even some current students) to get how they perceive the college you're interested in.
  9. A great way to figure out your what top school is to make a pro and cons list, where you organize the information and compare your top choices.
  10. Finally, don't forget to consider your feelings. At the end of the day, you should pick a place that suits you and where you'll feel comfortable.
