Here are some links that will help you in your college search. It is important to remember that a college must "fit like a shoe" in order to be successful. A college choice should be based on interests, major, location, and cost. However, do not let cost prevent you from at least applying. Oftentimes, private or higher tuition schools provide more financial aid to their students.
