Exclamation College help - April 3rd 2013, 06:46 PM

I need some advice. I got accepted to all the schools I applied to but now I am stuck between making a decision.
The schools I got accepted to:
Indiana state university
University of Wisconsin- Madison
University of Minnesota - twin cities
Georgia state university
University of New Orleans

Pros and cons of each or something like that would be awesome. I need to make an informed decision based on merit and which school I would fit best at. Here some information about me

I am:
African American
Female
Lesbian (fem)
Not very athletic
And like to be involved in lots of extracurricular activities

I don't personally know anything about these schools, but do they have any open day events you could go to? I know when I was choosing my university, I visited the uni because that gave me a feel for what it would be like, I had an example lecture to show me a little of what the course would be like and I got to speak to members of staff and current students. It would be worth looking into things like that.

I recommend going on collegeboard.com and searching up all of those colleges. That website has lots of information about schools that can help you decide which ones would be a good fit. I believe they also have a tool you can use to find what colleges are best for you based on information you put in.


And here you are living, despite it all.

I definitely agree with Nicole, college board was a great help when I was looking at colleges.
Also, going to their individual websites may help as well; college board has a lot of info but their is always more on their actual pages.
