Mistake 6: Paying Too Much Attention to College Rankings

"One-size-fits-all" rankings ask the wrong question.  They as what the "Best College" instead of asking what the "Best College for You" is.

College rankings targeted specifically towards veterans is a step in the right direction, but even those rankings can fall short. For example, College Factual's rankings favor large, public colleges because these schools tend to have a lot of support and resources for veterans. However, they still may not be a good fit for you specifically depending on what you're looking for in a school and what major you intend to study. 

Rankings That Fit You

Students that choose a major and a college that is a good fit for them do better in school, and are more likely to graduate on time. Get started discovering the majors and colleges that are best for you by using some of College Factual's matching tools.
