How do I decide which college to attend if I'm accepted to multiple schools?

Hello everyone, I'm a junior in high school and I'm starting to think about the decision-making process if I'm lucky enough to be accepted to multiple colleges. How did you guys decide which college to attend? What factors should I consider when making my decision? Any advice would be really helpful. Thank you!

Hey! Congrats on starting your college search journey! When my child was in your shoes, we considered a few key factors when making the decision. First and foremost, look at the financial aid packages each school offers. College can be expensive, so make sure you're considering how much it'll cost you in the long run. Also, think about what kind of campus environment you want - urban, rural, large, or small. Visit the schools if you can, or take a virtual tour if you can't. It's important to get a feel for the atmosphere. Look into the academic programs each school offers, especially if you have a specific major in mind. If you're undecided, see if the school has a variety of options that interest you. Lastly, consider extracurricular activities and campus life - what clubs and sports are available, and if you can see yourself fitting in and enjoying your time there. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll make the right choice for you!
