As a childhood Education major, I am confused on whether to go to Hunter, City, or Queens College. How should I narrow down my choices?

I am about to attend a 4-year soon but not sure which one I want to go to definitely. Queens College is my 1st but Hunter/City are good choices as well. How should I make the best decision? #college #college-admissions #college-selection #college-choice

Kristi’s Answer

I am not familiar with either college, but when choosing a college there are several things you should consider: cost, the major's offered, types of degrees offered (AA, BA, MA, PhD), the setting (city, rural, college town), distance from home, housing, size of classes, gender ratio, Greek life and even parking. The college that checks all the important boxes for you is the one you should choose. Good luck!

To choose the best college/university for yourself I would recommend that you start by building a check list encompassing the most important “Fit factors” for you personally with where you attend and what you’d like to take away from where you attend while there as well as post-graduation. For example, majors offered, student services and employment centers, sports, student to teacher ratio, requirements for admissions, location, cost, experience, student life etc. For each school that you’re considering I would then rate them each across each “Fit factor” (e.g. Best fit, Somewhat a fit, or Not a fit) and compare and contrast at the end to see which will be the best fit for you!

If you need ideas on what “Fit factors” to have on your list which we all did I would consider leveraging others to help you make the list of criteria that is important as it relates to college/where you choose. It's always helpful to get the opinions of others (guidance counselors, family, friends) and considering adding those recommendations in.

John recommends the following next steps:

Furthermore, the more you know about each school through their website, speaking to alumni and by calling them directly to inquire the easier it will be to choose for yourself.
