college personality quiz
College Personality Quiz
  • You start the process of choosing a college with a careful look at yourself, not with a list of colleges.
  • It is your own assessment of your interests, your attitudes, and your abilities that is central to finding a college, for the purpose of college-hunting is to find the right match between you and your eventual college choice!
  • Before you start poring over view books and catalogs from colleges, you want to examine yourself as a person and as a student. Such an appraisal will yield data about yourself that will allow you to move with confidence and greater knowledge to the next stages of finding a college.
