How many students do you know who have a clear idea about what their future holds?- In my experience, very few.
With this in mind, selecting a college or university is, certainly an important decision and there are many factors to take into consideration.
Such a choice has to be fully thought-through. Choosing which University, and of course the right program can become, for many people, a great source of anxiety. For some it can take days to evaluate a list of the pros and cons, but for others, the choice becomes a kind of lottery. Frequently, the choice is deduced from randomness over reason, and it all ends with signing up for a faculty without any kind of pondering at all.
