Is it wise to apply to more than one college?

I intend to study in Singapore, so I would prefer an answer relevant to the Singapore context, but I'm open to answers related to university applications for other countries. #university #university-applications #university-teaching

Hi I would definitely recommending applying to more than one college that way you give yourself different options. There is an old saying " Never put all your eggs in one basket". It's always good to have many options to be able to choose in between.

Grant’s Answer

Choosing where to go to college is a very big decision. You probably already knew that. However, what I have realized since I made that same decision, is that there are other things to consider besides the immediate facts such as 'what programs are strong at the school'. You are going to be spending a lot of time at school, so consider where you want to live for the next few years of your life. Consider also that a lot of people are living on their own for the first time in college. Distance from friends and family is an important thing to consider. Where you go to school is going to decide the kinds of people you meet in this very formative and important part of your life and growth as a person. So in short, yeah, apply widely to give yourself different options.

+1 to Shamara's response. I will definitely recommend applying to multiple colleges. But before you start apply, think back on what you want to achieve, what colleges are good and what are their requirements to get in. I would suggest apply to 1 or 2 colleges which are good but hard to get in, but then have another few which are decent but have a higher chance to get in. This way you have a fallback option in case the first 2 colleges dont work out.
