Admissions Advice

Which college should I choose?

Hi, so I don't know if anyone will be able to help me here or not but I thought I would see if anyone has any advice. I am stuck between two colleges.

One of them offers a great community and environment. The people I have met seem motivated and friendly. While they are build around the community they are more expensive. The campus is a bit on the older side but I could look past this.

The other accepts my credits and is cheaper. They also seem friendly when I have met with the staff and a few students. However, the campus intimidates me a little bit. I don't know if it was just the time I went or something but it made me re-question my decision to attend.

Both colleges are in small towns and have about the same feel to them. They both seem like they would get me to my degree and support me. However, I can't decide between them. I keep going back and forth worrying that I will choose the wrong one.

So, I guess what I am asking if anyone is offering is: does anyone have any advise? Does anyone have any insight to what I should be focusing on?

I will be fine either place I go but I can't figure it out. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

Both colleges seem like great choices! However, I believe that the second college may be a better fit for you. I suggest trying to revisit the college to see if you feel a little better about the environment. The way I see it, both colleges are exactly the same, except one is more expensive than the other. For that reason, I would go with the least costly one.

I wouldn't worry too much about making the wrong choice. Since they are so similar, I don't think there can be a wrong choice. Even so, if you truly feel like the one you choose doesn't feel right, then you can always transfer to the other to see if it suits you better.

I hope this helps, best of luck!
