How to Choose the Right College for You

Weigh In Your Interests and Abilities

If you truly want to find the perfect college for you, then you first need to think about what you want to do. If you don't have enough clarity of what career path you'd like to go down just yet, you can at least get some direction. Weigh in your interests and abilities and search for a school that has programs catered to them.

Consider Your Preferences and Needs

Of course, you need to think about the direction you want your career to go in. However, they may also be other factors that could sway your college selection process. For instance, you need to think about what you want and need your school to have. For avid readers, you may need your college to have an extensive library you can access.

Look Into Your Financial Situation

College education is not the cheapest, which means money is a determining factor during your college selection process. For that reason, before you make a decision, you need to look into your financial situation. Will you be able to afford the school you like? If needed, could you get a scholarship or a student loan to fund your education? Answer these questions so you can make the right financial decision.

Begin the Elimination Process

Since you've already taken your financial situation, your interests, your abilities, your needs, and your preferences into account, you can start the elimination process. You could even create a shortlist with the colleges that meet the criteria you've established so far.

Research the Schools on Your Shortlist

Once you have your shortlist, you should begin searching the internet for more information on the contenders that made it in there. Seek as much information as you can, so you can make an informed decision. Be sure to organize it nicely, so you can compare it against each other later on.

Visit the Campuses

An imperative step in your college selection process should be to actually pay a visit to the campuses of the top schools you're interested in (the ones you can, at least). Take time to visit the campus, get the vibe of the school, check out the installation, and understand what it would be like to study/live in the town it's located in.

Consider the Networking Aspect

When you're in school, you're supposed to focus on learning. However, networking, meeting people, and being social is also a big part of it. After all, it is in college where you'll meet like-minded people that can help your career later on. For that reason, you should consider the quality of the community around the college (for instance, does it have renowned professors and alumni?).

Turn to Teachers, Alumni, and Students for Guidance

If you want to get true insight of what the school is like, what better than to ask teachers, alumni, and students for guidance? There's something that you won't be able to find during your research on the internet, and that is what it truly feels like to be in that school. For that reason, you should turn to them so you can get a better sense of it.

Make 'Pros' and 'Cons' Lists

By this point, you've gathered enough information on each school to make your decision. If you still need help deciding, however, you can create 'pros' and 'cons' lists for each of the school. At the end, compare the results that each school got and declare a winner.

Choose a Place that Suits You

Last but not least, you will need to take your gut into account. How do you feel about the winner school? Is there another school that you think could have been a better one for you from your top choices? You will go to this school for a number of years, so you need to be comfortable and feel like that place suits you, your personality, and your goals.
