Choosing The Right College

Choosing the right college is something that a lot of high school seniors procrastinate on because they think it's just too hard and can't seem to make up their mind. After all, there are a lot of factors to consider. However, it doesn't have to be so difficult if you do your research correctly. We've put together a few things that you should look for and ask yourself. Here goes?Size of the College

So you've grown up in small-town USA? Then perhaps you might want to consider a smaller college than a large, state university. Teens who grow up in small, rural towns often have a hard time adjusting to city life. So the size of the college should be something you definitely consider.Both large schools and small ones have their advantages and disadvantages. Small schools allow a more personal feel because you can get to know the professors more. You won't have to worry about having a class with 500 other people. However, there will likely be less courses offered so your educational opportunities won't be as wide. Large colleges offer a lot of courses but you sacrifice the "personal" feel of a smaller college.

CostsThe costs of a certain college is a very important factor in deciding whether or not to go somewhere. If you're trying to decide between two equally-good colleges, the one with a lower price tag would probably be the better bet.But if your mind is definitely set on a college but you're deterred by the high price, don't sacrifice a great college education solely based on the cost. There are always opportunities to pay for your education through grants, scholarships, and work-study programs.RankingsA lot of times, people base their decisions entirely on college rankings. They see a college is ranked highly for a specific field (business, engineering, etc..) and instantly decide to go there. The problem this builds is that the student might not like other aspects of the college such as the campus, location, etc? Avoid this problem by researching everything about the college before you make your decision.LocationSo you're tired of living in New England and want to get away to somewhere warm? Four years in California might sound great but give the location some serious thought first. Remember that your first year in college might leave you feeling homesick so being that far away from home might prove to be too much for you. Be realistic with the location of the college.Visit the campusThis is very important...visit the campus before you decide to go there. Throughout the year, colleges offer campus tours so you can get a feel of the college. I suggest you go to one of the guided tours and then make arrangements to spend a weekend at the college with a college student to see what it is really like.Use a college-screenerSome college websites such as Embark.com allow you to enter in all of the qualities of a college that you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a small college in Wisconsin costing under $15,000/year with a student-run newspaper, it'll give you a list of matching colleges. This is a great way to narrow down your list.So when it comes time to making your college decision, remember to give it a lot of consideration.  After all, this is the place you'll spend the next four years of your life (or five...or six?).
