Picking a college is a very tough decision, and there are a lot of factors to weigh. I recommend going to a college that:
a) You can afford
b) Offers the right courses for your major
c) Offers a student/teacher ratio that makes it an effective learning environment for you
d) Has proven career placement results
e) Gets you excited when you go for a campus visit
Speak to some of the students there, go on a tour, and make the decision that is in your best interest. Don’t go somewhere just because a friend or boyfriend/girlfriend is going there. Choose a school where you will be happy spending a good chunk of your life.
