Factoring in the quest for quality
You can find those statistics in The Princeton Review Malaysia’s school profiles and if you want to improve your own numbers, it has a lot of tools to help.
Every college has its own special vibe. You can start narrowing down your list by making some decisions about the size of the student body and geographical location, and then move on to aspects you can identify by visiting campus, talking to current students and trusting your gut instincts. Take quality of life into account too.
The cost of college is one of the biggest concerns. The Princeton Review Malaysia hears that from the students it works with and sees it on its College Hopes and Worries Survey. It’s important to be realistic about your family’s finances, but also important not to cross a school off because of a scary sticker price.
Many colleges and universities offer incredible financial aid packages ( sometimes as a combination of grants and scholarships, which means no debt at all).
Raising your grades and your SAT or ACT scores will help you become more eligible for merit- based financial aid. Also, more and more data on college outcomes – that is, career placement rates and average starting salaries is becoming available, which can help you assess the value of investing your tuition dollars in a particular college.
Are you looking for strategic college advice based on your personality and goals? The Princeton Review Malaysia’s college counsellors will help you find, apply, and get accepted to your dream school.
