I am completely and utterly lost in the whole college selection process. I have very little idea as to were I want to go or which schools will accept my application. Naviance is of little help because I have no parameters concerning what I want or do not want. I really am not concerned with wether or not my college is small or large, or wether it is in an urban or rural area. I just want a school with solid academics.
The main problem with the most advice I have received is that everyone attempts to sell you a college. They tell you that its perfect for you or that you will love the campus, but how do they know there is not a more suitable college out there for you? They really have no idea. It seems like the whole college experience has been blown up so much that the most important thing is that you just get in somewhere. It does not even matter where, just that you get in. I am sick of losing my senior year to planning my years to come.
