Hey there! It's great that you're starting to think about finding the right college fit for you. There are several factors to consider when looking for a college. Here are a few key aspects you might want to think about: location, size, academic programs, campus culture, extracurricular activities, and cost. It's essential to evaluate what is most important to you in each of these areas to narrow down your choices.

In terms of resources, there are plenty of websites and tools that can help you find colleges that match your interests and preferences. Some popular ones include CollegeVine, CollegeBoard's BigFuture, and the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard. These sites allow you to search and filter colleges based on different criteria like majors, location, and more.

Another useful resource is talking to your high school guidance counselor. They can provide personalized advice and recommendations based on your academic profile and interests. You may also want to attend college fairs and visit campuses to get a feel for the schools you're considering. Good luck with your search!
