  • College Factual - Don't just pick a pretty face!

    Take a look at this message from the folks at College Factual:


    If you were thinking about getting into a long-term relationship with someone who could change the course of your life, you would give it some pretty serious thought, right?

    Unfortunately, a lot of students aren't sure how to make a wise decision when it comes to one of the most important long-term relationships of their lives: where they will go to college.

    Many students make their final decision about a college based on how pretty the campus is, even though you know this is a terrible reason to make a choice when it comes to other big decisions!

    Fortunately there is a better way.

    Begin your college search with our advanced matching tools.
