5 Tips to Choose the Right College

Choosing a college for undergraduate studies is a very big decision and one that you want to make correctly the first time. Here are five tips to help you or your child choose the right college:

1. Do your research

Use resources like the Best Colleges 2014 guidebook, college websites, alumni websites, and more to get a complete picture of each college you’re considering.

2. Visit the Campus

Don’t rely on pictures and hearsay. You should visit any college you’re seriously considering to see what life is really like on campus.

3. Talk to Students

Take the time to seek out and speak with current students or very recent graduates. The campus life experience can change significantly from one year to the next, and you need current information to make the right choice.

4. Aim High

Yes, you should apply to a safety school, but you should also apply to schools that are a stretch. You never know what a school is looking for in its future student body. Your grades might be a bit low but your experience in another area might be just what they’re looking for. In other words, don’t take yourself out of the running without at least giving yourself a chance.

Where you want to live. If you said UCLA has a great X&Y program or such, then that would work, but not because, I don't like New York anymore.
I'm starting b-school in a month (a top part-time program). I'm not going to say which one, as associating an assmunch like myself to that program will bring it's ratings down.
I must say, B-school admissions are nearly random. Don't expect to get into UCLA no matter what scores you got. Keep your options open. Look at Northwestern's admissions stuff. You'll notice that the distribution of GMAT scores for those rejected and admitted are relatively the same
