Finding your Dream Match

Picking a college is like like finding a boyfriend or girlfriend.  A good one can be hard to find.  Consider your possible career paths or intended majors.  Use a Match Engine to help you get an initial list. 

    Finding your match entails more than just getting lists from the web; it requires surfing the colleges' websites.  It requires asking friends and family about schools.  It means visiting campuses.  It means knowing yourself: your dreams, your strengths and weaknesses, your passions, your fears, your attitudes.
