First from entrance Angle for the school choice: the choice of schools generally choose according to their scores some corresponding more appropriate, and of course within the designated score file, choose the school is famous with professional characteristics better! (note: also take into account your preferences, such as professional direction, geographical distribution, climate environment, etc.).
Secondly: from the choice of entrance Angle to talk about professional entrance for most of the students, the most headache is professional choice, from parents, teachers or senior can draw lessons from the experience of many, here we from their own perspective: 1) interest: want to consider their own interests and hobbies, only you are interested in a professional you will spend more time and energy; 2) professional connotation: professional connotation is also nots allow to ignore the one hand, maybe you are interested in a professional, but less than a single professional subjects but comprehensive arrangement, must be detailed look at before choosing a major professional connotation; 3) employment direction: the direction of employment is straightforward, which is the direction of the professional development. It is the prospect of going to the society to find a professional job after your major graduation in the next three to four years.

Matthew’s Answer

Annalyse, thanks for posting this question. It's definitely something to contemplate as you move forward in the next season of your life. You've probably heard a multitude of things to consider as you attempt to choose a college: tuition, student-faculty ratio, resource programs available on campus, etc. Based on the experiences I've had counseling both high school and college students, the most important thing to consider as you determine which college is best for you is simply this: What school will help me become who I want to be and what I want to do?


I'll share a personal story to illustrate the point. When I applied for admission to three different colleges, I also had the chance to visit all three of them. (On a side note, this provides you with a much better idea of how the campus "feels" and whether it's the best place for you to grow.) One campus proved to be too demanding for me academically; another campus proved to be too rigid socially. The third campus I visited turned out to be the best one for me in every way: academically, socially, and professionally. It was five hours away from home, which meant not returning home on the weekends to do laundry and procrastinate because it's comfortable. The school offered a wonderful financial aid package - it was a good mix of scholarships and loans, which I paid off 5 years after graduating. And, it helped me become a better student and a stronger person.


That's the kind of school you want to pursue. No, it's not always found easily, but it's definitely worth the efforts you take along the way, and it'll pay off dividends later in many ways for you.


Best of luck!
Matt
