Choosing the right college can be a daunting task. For many, this decision is made harder because it is their first time living away from home for an extended period of time. To find the right school, there are many things to consider like the size of the school, whether you want to be in an urban or rural environment, sports teams available and whether it is a good fit academically. However, few people consider how much debt the cost of college can leave them with after they graduate. While this is only one piece of the equation, it should help to give you a more balanced view of where best to end up.
