About This Quiz

You had a big decision when you tried to figure out whether or not you wanted to go to the college in the first place, now you have to try and figure out what college would be best for you. These types of things are massively complicated. It isn't just about how good a college is, and how much a degree from it would help you in the future, it is also about a lot of other things, such as much the college costs, where it is located, and so on. You might want where you go to school to be far from home so you don't have to deal with your family, or you might want it to be close by so your parents can make you dinner and do your laundry on the weekends.

But that isn't all. You have to figure out whether a college has a cool party scene, or whether it has a lot of attractive people of the appropriate sex for your interest. You might even worry about if it has a good theater or arts department, or whether or not it has a good college football team. There are so many things to figure out.
