Narrow Down Your College List

There are hundreds and hundreds of colleges and universities. Finding the right ones to apply to can be overwhelming. Before you start your college search, you need to determine a few things to help narrow your search.

  • Location: Do you want to be close to home or far away?
  • Would you rather attend a private or public school?
  • Cost of education. How much are you willing to pay for school? How many loans are you willing to take out?
  • Majors and Minors. Is your major and/ or minor offered at the school?
  • Size of school. Do you want a small, medium, or large campus?
  • The size of a classroom & ratio of professor to student. 1 to 250 or 1 to 30?
  • Do you want to dorm or commute?
  • Campus life. What are the extra activities offer? Greek Life?
  • Religious affairs.
  • Setting: City, Urban, Rural, or Suburban
  • Test Score: Where does your test score falls in terms of the school?

Good luck with your search.
