Choosing the Best College for Now and Later

So, you’re about to make one of the biggest decisions of your life and it is all a little overwhelming! You want to pick the best school that will propel you toward your goals and provide a great social experience while doing it.

Here are some tips and tricks to choose the school that best matches your future goals and have some fun while doing it!

•You will end up exactly where you aim: To start with, the only way to end up where you want to be is to begin with the end in mind! Weed through your list of post-secondary choices and eliminate the ones that will not produce the most effective career goals.

•Job Worthy: Consider the practical job connection opportunities available at each school. Search for details such as the student to career counselor ratio, how often do they have job fairs and whether they conduct on-campus interviews. All these factors will show you how aggressive the institution is about your future employment after graduation.

•List your favorites: Once you’ve considered the major details make a list that ranks your choice of schools that still fit within the above criteria. Once you have a list of those that meet your criteria, start filtering through with your less significant but still super important requirements. How big or small is the school, for example, or how significant is their athletic program. You can tweak these questions based on your own interests.

Following these steps will ensure you get the strength of education you need to complete your long-term goals. The secondary priorities will make sure you have a great experience doing it!
