Choosing the right college can be a daunting task. For many, this decision is made harder because it is their first time living away from home for an extended period of time. Some people can't wait to get away, and others may be nervous about venturing too far away.
To find the right school, there are many things to consider like the size of the school, whether you want to be in an urban or rural environment, sports teams available and whether it is a good fit academically.
As you use the tool, remember that economics is an important part of deciding which school to attend. As more and more students are graduating with a significant amount of debt, it pays to take a few moments to look at how much the cost of a particular school will impact you after graduation. It is also important to remember that this is only one measure of the benefit of attending this school. Many schools offer intangible benefits - for example: a powerful and connected alumni network or great job placement services that can help you land a higher paying job. Use the information you obtain to help you evaluate all the factors so that you choose the right school for you.
