Undergrad – Choosing Universities

February 1st to February 15th

Research universities for selected majors.

Give yourself options. Think about the location and utilize all the resources available to you.

Your goal is to find schools (universities) that are the right fit for you!

Reach out to the International Office with any questions you may have. Some schools have student ambassadors that can also help you with such things amongst others.

February 15th to February 28th

Narrow Down to 12 Universities. (4 Top Rank, 4 Medium Rank, 4 Low Rank)

What are the universities you know you will be accepted at based on your qualifications? Which are schools that you could consider “stretch goals” but may have a stronger academic reputation? Which schools are the best of the best? You will want to have a variety of choices.

Rankings:

  • Top: 1 to 60
  • Medium: 61 to 120
  • Low: 120+

As you narrow down on choices of universities, your goal is to have a good mix that gives you the best chance for acceptance and for attending the type of school that’s best for you.

Check out Top University Rankings

Assuming you not have taken your SAT/ACT yet, the idea is to pick schools from each of the 3 ranking tiers identified above. Based on your SAT/ACT score we will narrow it down to 8-10 schools, later in the process.

Wrap Up

Congratulations, you have given yourself a good variety of selection for universities! Now it’s time to prepare for your tests and set yourself up for success.

By having a plan I was able to get accepted into one of my top ranked schools and have options with other medium and safe choices I selected.
