Tips & Info

Here are some things to consider when choosing a school:

  • Public or Private?
    Public schools are mostly paid for by the government and they provide outstanding education at a lower price than private institutions.
    Private colleges are costly but can also offer liberal financial aids.
  • Academic Goals
    Pursue a major or a course that interests you, not just one that will pay good money.
    Evaluate the institution’s facilities and offerings and make sure the school has sufficient resources.
  • Big or Small?
    Schools range from populations of under 5,000 students up to over 50,000 students.
    Consider the following based on your individual personality: class environment, variety of course offerings, campus life, athletics, housing.
