Before Committing to a School

More than 1/3 of college students will transfer schools after their freshman year. The reasons vary but most fall in the “not a fit” category, and the leader is probably “not affordable.” Others include being too far from home and wanting to change major to one that the school doesn’t offer.

Transferring schools is an easy way to get off track, which can then get the student on a spiral to 4+ years of college. So it’s important to think big picture when choosing a college. My niece, who’s a current high school senior, passed along this link to Teen Vogue’s 7 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself Before Committing to a College. These are great questions to ask about yourself and the schools you’re considering, before signing on.
