I am very con*sed on what colleges to choose from. There are lots of them! What factors should be considered when selecting colleges?

This can vary tremendously based on individual preferences. Some students only want to consider colleges that are in particular states while others prefer urban or rural settings or schools that have very specific programs that interest them.  Here are some general guidelines to follow: (1) Try to find colleges that have majors that interest you; (2) Think about whether you may be happier at a large university that offers a wide variety of majors and minors or whether you should consider the advantages of a smaller college/university with more limited course offerings but one that offers more discussion-based cl*es for the first two years and more chances to get to know faculty; (3) Consider the differences among urban, suburban, small town, and rural settings; (4) You should consider a broad definition of diversity including geographic, racial, and ethnic characteristics; and (5) In living,  on-campus options may include theme dorms, suites, and apartments.
