NARROW YOUR CHOICES AND DECIDE WHERE TO APPLY

<< Back
Narrowing your list of schools to a manageable number may be your hardest job yet. You might benefit from a few tips and decision strategies:

Compare the pros and cons of each school on your list: Get your files and review your notes to compare schools. If you haven't done it already, you might want to make a list of pros and cons for each school to help organize your thinking.

Group school choices by your chance of being admitted: Once you go through the pros and cons, sort your files into three groups:
  1. Reach schools - represent an admission challenge either by cost, admission requirements, or both.

  2. Mid-range schools - where you're likely to get accepted, but you're not sure.

  3. Safety schools - where you're sure to be admitted and know you can afford.
Make your final list: Include schools from each category on your list and rank them by preference. Most counselors suggest including a number of reach and mid-range schools, as well as one or two safety schools. Give careful thought to your choices.

Applying early: If you are sure about your school choice, you might want to consider early admissions at that school.
