You have gathered a lot of information from your reading,
conversations and campus visits. Feeling a little
overwhelmed by it all? The college evaluation chart
( link to PDF)
should help you put it in prospective.
For each of the selection factors listed, evaluate each
college on a scale of 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent). You
determine whether a college or university receives a
1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a particular factor, such as location
or academic program. In other words, a college that you
evaluate as a 5 on one factor may receive a 1 on that
same factor from someone else.
Now, for each factor, compare your evaluations of the
colleges. Keep in mind that it's unlikely that all of
the college selection factors will be of equal importance
to you. Pay special attention to those you think are most
important to your interests and needs.
