Know the TYPE of school you want to attend: ● Do you want to attend a 2 or 4-year school, college, university, or technical school? ● Do some reading about each type of college, university or technical school.

Seek colleges that offer a broad curriculum so that you have the flexibility to change majors as your interests change. Of course, if you are anxious to pursue a certain specialty, such as engineering or architecture, be sure you look for schools with strong programs in those areas. PRICE RANGE: WITH YOUR PARENTS, decide what you can afford to pay. Total expenses vary greatly among schools. Don’t rule out a college simply because of cost.

FRATERNITIES, SORORITIES AND SPORTS: Do you want to be a part of a Greek system, or would you prefer a social climate where most students are independent? MAKE-UP OF STUDENT POPULATION: ● Does this matter to you? ● Do you want co-ed, state school (where most student are from within the state), private school (where a deliberate attempt is made to admit students from a variety of cultures, countries, and socio-economic backgrounds)? SPECIALTY PROGRAMS: ● Do you want to study abroad? ● Are you interested in a co-op or internship experience where you can combine practical work experience with education?
