The importance of researching your future

Kai Tibbitts ’24

This is the one. This is the school that I have been dreaming of for years. This is where I’m meant to be. It all seems perfect until it isn’t. The school of your dreams isn’t exactly what you imagined it to be and now you are opening up a transfer application. As a high school senior myself, this is a fear that I share with many of my classmates, that I didn’t choose the right school. While it can be extremely hard to know exactly which school is right for you, taking the time to research your options and visiting schools will help ensure that you have made the right decision.

After waiting for months on end to hear back from the schools you’ve applied to, it’s completely reasonable to take months to make your decision as you hear back from them. There are many factors that one might consider when looking at schools, such as location, academics, career placement, cost, etc. Investigating further on all these factors will help you narrow down your college decisions and make the choice that is right for you.

According to Quinnipiac Today (QT), an online source to guide students applying to college, the benefit of taking the time to visit colleges before committing is immense. Taking the extra time on campus can provide a better understanding of which environment feels best, and will help you make your final decision, QT stated.

From my own experience, I had my heart set on attending a certain college. However, over these past months my mindset has completely changed and I no longer want to attend that school. This shift was due to uncontrollable factors in my life, but also from my own research into that school and learning that I do not see myself growing into my full potential. As time goes on, your decision may change as you are changing as a person and experiencing your final year of high school.

While the uncertainty may be daunting, waiting to decide which college to commit to will pay off in the long run as you take time to find the school that is right for you.
