How do you know if your chosen college provides quality education?
I'm asking this question as a candidate of college student. #college #studying-tips #college-admissions #higher-education
this is a great question and an exciting journey. My son is a high school senior and I hope describing his process will help you.
Comparing several sources is probably a good starting point. If the below links don't work just search for "college rankings". CollegeSimply also has a separate academic ranking. I hope you'll find similar sources for schools in Canada.
- US News: https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/rankings
- CollegeSimply: http://www.collegesimply.com/
- Forbes: https://www.forbes.com/sites/susanadams/2018/04/10/best-value-colleges-2018-300-schools-worth-the-investment/1e9ef19659b1
It's a good idea to think about what you want to do when evaluating the colleges. For example, US News has several categories such as best engineering schools or best business schools, and more.
Enjoy the journey and best of luck,
Andrea recommends the following next steps:
Research, research, research. Talk to people who have attended the college, both those that have graduated and those who haven't . Go on line and check out all the sites related to the college. You can also check with your school counselor. Good luck.
