Find The Best College For You
The trick to college selection is finding the best college for you. It is helpful to compare the college selection process to a funnel. When you first start the process, you are at the large end of the funnel. You are not quite sure what career you want to pursue or what college you want to attend. This is not unusual; most first-year students are undecided. So relax and let's look at some ways to help you get to the narrow end of the funnel. Ideally, you should start the process in the winter of your junior year of high school. Starting early gives you more time to explore your options and helps minimize the stress.
When deciding what colleges to apply to, you should try listing qualities that are important to you. You may be surprised about what you learn when you examine yourself closely. The following are topics students and families often consider when developing a college plan.
