Recommended Audience – All students

Fatmata Koroma, Admissions Representative for the University of Pittsburgh will give a seminar on finding the college that is the best fit!  When developing your college list or making a final decision about where you’re going to college, the idea of “fit” is complex. You have to shed your ingrained way of shopping for “fit” and understand that there are many important, intangible and often unseen variables that must be considered beyond how a college campus looks and feels at a glance.   You’ve probably heard of these common factors to consider:  location of the college; size of the college; cost of the college; and, whether the college has your major.  While these things are important, all students need to be better consumers, which means thinking about a host of other factors that you may not have given enough consideration to or are even familiar with.  Interested in learning more?  We will meet in the Career Center.
