7 Essential Decisions for Choosing Your College

Determining which college you will attend is a big decision. It's important to find an institution that
will meet all of your academic needs and that will provide you with the skills you will need to enter the
work world. You will also have to consider the costs of each college you are considering in order to get
the best educational bang for your buck.

1. Decide which aspect of college life is most important to you. Are you looking for a particular degree
or major? Do you want to attend school at a specific location? How much do you want to spend on
your degree? You will need to answer these types of questions in order to refine your search.

2. Make a list of all of your strengths and interests. Add to your list all of the career options that fit with
these characteristics.

3. Talk to your family and friends about your plans for college. They will be able to provide you with
extra guidance through this process.

4. Contact the admissions offices of all of the colleges you would like to consider. Ask to have a
college catalog sent to you. You can also research these institutions online. Check to see if they offer
the type of degree you want. Take a look at the costs involved in attending the college as well.

6. Once you gathered all of the information you need, make a list of the top five colleges choices.
Contact each college and schedule an appointment for a visit to each campus. Include an appointment
with the administration of the department that you want to study. Check into the available financial
assistance provided by each institution.

7. When you have completed all of your research, create a chart that lists the advantages and
disadvantages of each of the colleges that you are considering. Compare the five colleges and decide
which of the institutions is best for your situation.

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
