When I begin working with a high school student to start the college search and application process, I ask a lot of questions. This helps me learn more about my students- their strengths and areas where they may be less confident, their hopes and dreams and aspirations. This also gets the students thinking about things they may not have thought much about before, including the different types of colleges and universities available to them.
Students are fortunate to have over 2000 four-year colleges and universities in the US from which to apply! However, some types of colleges may be more suitable for some individual personalities and learning styles. To find your fit, it helps if you know a little about what your choices may include.
