It is rather daunting coming out of high school to find the right college as you the world after high school. You take a huge leap really, as soon as you walk out of your high school doors and into the big wide world of college and work. Chances are, as you’ve made it this far, you’re looking to go to college rather than going straight into work. But first, you need to find the college that is right for you!
A survey from Family First Aid had found that around about 70 percent of teens in total had admitted to being somewhat stressed out over their grades and their college admission. This is obviously quite a big number, and these statistics say that you, reading this now, have a 70% chance of feeling stressed about going into college – you probably are!
Well, don’t worry. Looking for a college that is right for you isn’t too hard of a task really, what with the obvious easy accessibility to the Internet. The internet really is a great place to start looking for those colleges. Usually colleges will have websites (in fact nowadays it’s impossible to find a college without one really), so you should definitely take advantage of this now that you are coming out of high school.
Good colleges will have good websites that will pick up keywords on search engines such as Google, for e.g. if you type in ‘colleges in New York’ you should fine some top colleges in New York quite easily. It’s all about searching for specifics – location can be one of them. It’s best to go to a college that is further away from home as you need to try and break away from your family as bad as it sounds. You need to really experience independence and responsibility, as your parents won’t always be there to give you a helping hand!
So the Internet is just one way of finding out about different colleges around you, but it is probably the most effective method. Give it a go.
