How do you pick your school

I have applied to four colleges and got into them all. Now I just need to decide where to go I don't want follow my friends but I don't want to be alone either. I have a very close relationship with my mom due to my health problems and I want to keep it but make it normal.

Ultimately this is up to you however some criteria for picking your college that you can follow are:

: How much financial aid (if needed) offered

: Best for major

: Best social scene (if applicable)

: Graduation rate

: Area

: Distance (Many go for with driving or a quick flight when trying to stay close to family)

Hope this helps

Think about what is most important to you of the things @MaryMary listed. Then compare each of the schools. Was there a particular school that stood out to you? Where do you think you will be happy? Also, if none of your friends are going to that college, is it a friendly environment where you can make lots of new friends?
