    Tuition is in fact one of the top deciding factor because you have to be able to play the amount needed to attend. Being closer to home is also has a major deciding factor because most people want to be familiar to their surroundings.

    I chose my college based on its religous association. A strong Catholic identity was important to me. I believe that a college should not only help prepare a student accademically, but also spiritually. College is about shaping the entire person. Every aspect, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, should be taken into consideration.

    The college that I am attending is expensive, but I wanted to go somewhere that had the exact major I was looking for. I didn’t want to waste money attending a college that only had half of the classes I was looking for or a program that I was semi interested in. I am proud at the fact that they accepted me and gave me a partial scholarship.

    That’s the problem with our country!! We are now more focused on IF we can go rather than where should we go!! Whenever I researched a college I immediately looked at the cost rather than its academic reputation and the student body’s GPA because I didn’t want to get my hopes up. I’m going to Endicott College next year and though I’m excited I’m not content with it. Not to brag but my GPA is above the average student yet I wasn’t offered any scholarship money at first. It seems ridiculous that our Government throws money around in programs that spend billions of dollars each year, such as NASA, yet God forbidden people to be able to afford a decent education or even health care. God, this pisses me off!

      I agree 100%! I have to find the funding for my education because I spent the last 5 years living above the poverty line, paying taxes and abiding by the law. I have never used any “programs”, yet I am ineligible for even the most basic of government funding for anything. How about we divert NASA funds to upstanding and productive members of society that are NOT COAT TAILING on some Official and maybe we will be the ones to cure cancer, invent the devices that clean up environmental spills in days instead of weeks etc.
