Choosing the Right College for You
The criteria are endless when it comes to drafting a list of colleges to apply to. For example, are you looking for a small liberal arts college in a rural area? Or would you prefer a sprawling, urban campus? Are you applying exclusively to public or state schools? Or are you also considering private universities? Which colleges are realistic reaches for you? And which are long shots? Are you applying to a safety school? An international program?
