When choosing between your two favorite colleges, making a pros and cons list will be a tremendous help. Also, get as much information as you can from your prep school counselor. As you can see from the video, there are a few other ways to help make your decision a little easier.
Visit the two colleges. Take advantage of every opportunity you have to see student life, and think about how you may fit in. Look at the curriculum for your desired major; see how the social clubs and societies vary, and investigate the statistics of graduation and job placement for each school. In the end, go with your gut and which college you think will be best for you.
