Visit multiple times, attend classes, stay overnight, meet studentJun 21 2012Economics
Visit multiple times, attend classes, stay overnight, meet student athletes if you want to play a sport, or dancers if you want to dance. Talk to faculty. Look at the size of the school and decide if small, medium or large is right for you. Don't disregard a small school; more connections, lower student faculty ratios and a sense of belonging. I made the perfect choice, I love my college!
