The Right College: As Comfortable as Your Favorite Pair of Jeans
Martin, Elizabeth Jean
Journal of College Admission, n202 p18-21 Win 2009
There is one thing on every shopping list that any student will be sure to choose accurately: the perfect pair of jeans. Indeed, this ubiquitous wardrobe staple is an important purchase requiring a variety of considerations, many of which correspond to another even more significant decision most students will make in the coming weeks, months or years: selecting the perfect college. Interestingly, almost everything a wise shopper thinks about when seeking new denim trousers must also be pondered when searching for a college; style, fit and cost are essential in each case, but one must not forget the ever-important test that comes in front of the proverbial dressing room mirror. In this essay, the author gives some pointers on choosing the right college.
