Where should I apply to college?

You should consider applying to at least six colleges, with a mix of reach, match, and safety schools. Having a balanced list of schools to apply to increases the chances you are accepted by one or more colleges where you'll be happy.

You also shouldn't rely solely on a school's ranking or the advice of others. Take many factors into account and remember that the best school is the one where you feel at home and can thrive. Look at schools that have programs that interest you. Visit the campus and talk to students who go there. Only apply to schools where you can see yourself being happy.
