Hi Daniel!

There are several options that you can use regarding school information. You can go to the library because the majority of them have several pieces of literature that describes colleges and what they have to offer. They also have a lot of webinars dealing with colleges, their various majors, application processes, etc. Also, they have a lot of virtual college fairs for students, answering their questions and offering valuable information about the school.

Another valuable resource is is speaking with college alumni regarding their experience at the school. This gives a realistic view about how college life was for students and an overall description of how colleges were rated.

Another way to find out about a college is to go on line and go to the school's official website. Those are usually loaded with information regarding the school. On the website, they have descriptions of the various majors, extracurricular clubs and activities, application forms, etc. They have a lot of valuable information about the school on the website.

There are several ways that you can research a school...just do what is comfortable for you!!!

Lei’s Answer

I recommend the following two websites for your college search:

Niche:

https://www.niche.com

CollegeVine:

https://www.collegevine.com/college-lists-and-rankings

On both websites, click the college name and you'll see info about a college such as acceptance rate, cost and scholarship, majors, etc.

I also recommend a virtual student panel college fair. https://www.collegevine.com/college-fairs/september-2020

This is from last year, but most of the info should still be valid. The sessions will be helpful not only for you to find a fit school but also for supplemental essay inspiration. I've listened to about 20 live student Q&A sessions myself. Compared to the official info sessions offered by the colleges, you get to hear experiences from the students' perspectives.

Finally, check out this video:

Good luck with your college search.

Hi Daniel,

Few ways way to find more information about a college are as follows:
1. visit their website and find what courses they offer, the professors, research opportunities (if that interests you), financial assistance etc.
2. Reach out to the current students and Alumni to know more about their experience. LinkedIn is a good platform to do so.
3. Reach out to the undergraduate / graduate counsellor of the department you are intending to join.

HTH!! Good luck with your college selection!

Hi Daniel,

There are a lot of different options for researching which school is a good fit for you.
1. Visit various college websites that you are interested in attending. You can find a lot of good information related to what types of courses they offer.
2. Attend a college fair. There will be faculty members from the schools and potentially alumni present that can help to answer any questions you might have.
3. Talk with your school counselor, they may have information that they can pass along to you to review.
4. Talk with alumni of the school.
5. Talk with your friends and ask which schools they are interested in attending. They may have researched the same schools you are interested in and have additional information they can share with you. Additionally, they may have researched a school that you were not considering and based on the information they share, you may have an interest in more schools!

When it comes to higher education, there is no wrong choice. Good luck!
