The college search process can be difficult and stressful.

Many students ask themselves: “Can I afford to go to a school with excellent academics and a great reputation?” “Do I want a school with an intimate community feel, or all the opportunities presented by a larger institution?” “Should I go to a school with strong, deep ties to its local community or one that will give me a broader, global perspective?” We know how hard these decisions can be.
