As part of my capstone coursework, I put together a lengthy presentation (actually 2) about the college fit. The college a student decides to attend has to be the right fit academically, socially and financially. Many times, students look only at the social or academic fit but not at the cost to attend. What is the best school for a student? The answer is as unique as their fingerprint It will depend on many factors. Read these two presentations: The 1st handout covers the college rankings, academic fit, and social fit families should consider. The 2nd handout reviews the financial fit families should consider with California examples. I would love to hear your thoughts on these two documents!
