I voted for academics because that is the whole reason I'm even going to college--to further my knowledge. Not just book knowlede but experience and LIFE knowledge. But all of the options listed played a key role in my decision to attend (hope,hope,hope!!!) Clark Atlanta University. Campus life and social atmosphere is essential because where is the fun or GROWTH in attending a school that isn't active?? Location because I need to be close enough to get home when needed and far enough to really feel independent. Dormitories/quality of life is a given because this IS a matter of your living conditiond for four years. It isn't tooo important to me because I can sorta adjust to any living situation. Sorta. I put cost last because I don't want to restrict my educational experience because of money. I'm breaking my back as I write this to deal with various scholarships. I want to afford WHATEVER school I choose. The colleges I have applied to vary in price range so I'm aiming to pay for the MOST expensive even if I choose the cheapest. Okay, so there's my rant for the day. Peace&Blessings...... :lol: 8)
first it would have to be academics. then i look at the dorms and social life. cuz i can't be stayin in community bath dorms that's just me. but first i would definetly look to see if they have my intended major.
I don't know where want to go, but ir would have to be academics. If I'm paying for college I better have the best education for my money. I just want to go somewhere in the southeast region where they have a good band that I can play in. Maybe FAMU or something.
First it would have to be academics because I want to go to a school where I will get a good education because the college education is the one that I will have to pay for next Fall(04). Then it would have to be the campus life because I do want to have some fun in college and meet new people.
