It should be obvious. When you visit a potential school, you should get a vibe from it that says “I want to be here for the next 4 years.” It shouldn’t be “I can be here for the next 4 years,” make sure you want to be there. When I visited the University of Oregon (where I go now), I 100% knew it was where I wanted to be. I just loved everything about my school and I ended up committing the second I got home. I wanted no part in any other school once I saw Oregon, I simply knew it was the right college for me.
When you find the college that is right for you, you’ll know. Everyone has different factors that they have to consider in their decision, but in terms of what is the RIGHT college for you, you’ll know when you find the perfect college for you.
