With thousands of universities and colleges around the United States, it is easy to get overwhelmed.
Here are some things you might want to consider:
Do you want to commute to campus from home or do you want to move out of your city, even state for school?
What schools have strong programs in your potential major or area of study?
What does the cultural diversity look like at the school? Do you want to attend a HSI (Hispanic serving institution where at least 25% of students are Hispanic), a HBCU (historically Black College & University) or would you be comfortable at a PWI (predominately white institution) ?
What does financial aid look like at that school?
Below are some resources to begin exploring different universities !
You might have heard of Khan Academy from the free tutoring services they provide in specific subjects like math. Many people don't know that they also have a section for preparing for college.
