Can I apply to both public and private colleges?

Hi everyone! I'm a junior in high school and I'm trying to decide which colleges to apply to. I've been considering both public and private schools, but I'm not sure if I can apply to both types. Is it possible to apply to public and private colleges at the same time? Thanks for your help!

Hi there! Absolutely, you can apply to both public and private colleges during your application process. In fact, it's a great way to widen your options and find the best fit for your educational and personal needs. My own child applied to a mix of public and private schools, and it gave them the opportunity to compare different aspects such as class size, campus environment, and financial aid packages. Just remember to keep track of each school's specific application requirements and deadlines, as they may vary. Good luck with your college search!
