5. Major

Before you accept a college’s offer, it’s important that you investigate what their strongest major is. If you’re studying to be an engineer, you probably shouldn’t go to a liberal arts school. Likewise, if you’re a music major, a heavily research-based science school may not be the best for you. At a school better molded to your major, not only will you likely have a more enriching learning experience, you’ll also meet like-minded people. While it’s important to have friends from all different paths of life, the most long lasting relationships are usually built upon common interests.
