Hey there! It's great that you're being proactive in your college search. There are quite a few resources available to help you make an informed decision. To start, one of the most popular resources is the College Board's BigFuture website. This site allows you to create a personalized profile and search for schools based on criteria such as location, size, majors, and more. Another reputable resource is the U.S. News & World Report rankings, which provides information on various colleges and their rankings in different categories, such as national universities, liberal arts colleges, and regional colleges. Keep in mind, though, that rankings are just one factor to consider. For a more personalized approach, check out websites like Niche and Unigo, where current students and alumni provide reviews on their college experience. Lastly, don't forget to visit the colleges' official websites to learn more about their programs, campus life, and financial aid options. Best of luck on your college search journey!
