What is college fit?

what is college fit


You have probably heard this term a lot already. Your counselor talks about it, your parents are looking for it.  What is it? What is college fit?

Think of fit as a picture of college that brings four elements together to make the best fit for you. Consider Academic, Social, Physical and Financial perspectives. YOUR best fit may not be the same the best fit for your friend or your older sibling.  Find the right combination that will make your college experience meaningful for you.

Take Action

Record your thoughts and notes about each school you are considering in GuidedPath.  Use the Discuss tab under each school on your My Colleges or Interested Colleges list to write your notes.  Be sure to mention each of the four areas of fit – Academic, Social, Physical, and Financial.

Your parents can join the conversation, adding in their thoughts too.

Go to GuidedPath’s Guided Search and look at the My Matches results. You can use these as a starting point to create your own custom search for schools that could be a good fit for YOU!
