Article by Nicole on 11 Nov 2012

If this is your junior or senior year of high school, chances are you're getting ready to start the application process for an on campus college or university or for an online school. If you've decided to attend an on campus university, how will you narrow down your list of the schools you will apply to? What factors are most important to you? In our research we've found that many students consider factors such as:

  • Yearly tuition rates
  • Location of the campus
  • Size of the student body
  • Access to social organizations
  • Greek life
  • Financial aid options available
  • Family attendance at the same school
  • Majors available
  • Career placement of the graduates
  • College rankings
  • High school friends attending the same school
  • Reputation of the college or university
  • Quality of campus life
  • Satisfaction of current students

 

So, we're curious: which of these factors is most important to you as you narrow down your list of schools to apply to? Or, are there other factors that play an important role in your decision? Leave a comment below to join the conversation.
