Choosing a college for the right or wrong reasons.

    There are ways to determine whether a college is a good fit for you. First, go and see how it’s like living in the dorms, and visit the campus to see whether it’s a good choice for you. Also check out the campus tours, to ensure that this is the number 1 choice for you. Attend college fairs to investigate the different colleges, and even ask one of your teachers to give you more info about it, or even ask a college representative to tell you more. Explore the different options that are available before coming to conclusions. Don’t worry too much about the tuition, as this is a big bias and influence for many students. For now, just focus on your major and determine which college is a best fit for you.
