What To Look For In A University-Have You Considered These Factors?

May 05, 2014

​Choosing where to spend four years of your life is a major decision. Luckily, AdmitSee was created to help ease the process once you’ve decided! Below, a few students share what they look for in a university-are these factors important to you too?

Hasan considers majors offered, price, and location:

The majors available at a college plays a major factor when I am picking my colleges. I have visited 13 colleges so far and out of those 2 met my standards. I plan to visit a few more colleges this summer and next year. My school takes us on a few college trips every year to get a idea of what it is like. The most important factors I look to see in a college is: the cost and the location.

Kaitlyn also considers location and majors offered as well as campus culture:

I wish to be sure of my college choice. I don’t want to have any regrets. Visiting colleges seems to be the best way to guarantee I will have no regrets, so I plan to visit colleges with my school, and also over the summer. I will probably stay in the state, however, since family is something I don’t want to leave. Going too far means cutting ties with too many people.

What I’m looking for in college is a relaxing and comfy campus with the major I am looking for. I don’t particularly care about ranking or whether or not my parents like the college. Of course, the school must have a positive campus culture and the major I am looking for. Price would be another factor, for I would look more toward schools that I would be more likely to receive scholarships from. College is a new experience, and I want to make the best of it.

Price and ranking are important to Ola:

The price and ranking of a college are the two most important things to me when it comes to picking a school. I want to attend one of the top 100 schools in America, but the tuition of these schools is normally very high. I don’t want to spend more than $55,000 per year, but I know that I may have to, to get the education I want. I plan on visiting my state school and colleges in nearby Virginia and Pennsylvania. The summer of 2015 I plan on taking a two week trip to California to visit the different schools in the state. I’m really excited to finally get to see these colleges and hopefully choose my dream school!
