Best advice I can give you is to go see as many schools as you can afford to see. Get a feel of the place, to see whether you can see yourself spending 4 years there.

A lot of times that might change your original opinions, and so on.

I agree, it's all about the feeling you get when you walk around the campus, you can usually figure out right away whether or not the school is a fit for you.

Northwestern is an amazing school. My friend just applied early decision there.


I'm applying to colleges right now, actually. Good luck with your search!! I hope it's easier for you than it was for me, to narrow it down to the schools you're actually going to apply to.

I must also reitterate the suggestion that visiting the colleges you are interested in can be the most important deciding factor when finally choosing. Personally, I had three school lined up that before my visits all seemed amazing, and each a viable choice. The first two I visited were immediately out of consideration the same day I went, and the last one, American University, the one I'm in now, I knew immediately that it was were I wanted to go. So, the visits are CRUCIAL for deciding what school you want to attend. You just never know until you're there.

Go somewhere far, and fun. Don't be limited by geography. You can always fly home on holidays.

Go to Berkeley. I went there after growing up on the east coast, and it was one of the best decisions of my life.

college

And you were worried by a 3 1/2 hour drive? I'm a 6-hour flight across the Atlantic!

I applied to schools ten minutes away and ... well, where I am now! Don't let distance limit you.

Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI is an excellent school with an amazing journalism program.

I am an MU alum from the journalism program.

MU is not very far from Chicago ... in fact many people from the Chicagoland area go to MU (so many that we joke about Marquette being Chicago's northernmost suburb).

Email or pm me if you would like more info.

Just avoid Wheaton College like the plague, and you should be fine . . .
