When you were a kid did you dream about what you want to be when you grow up? You probably changed your mind several times by the time you grew up! If you had a solid idea of what you wanted to do by this time, you may have planned to attend college to create a reality from your dream. You researched which colleges had the best options, the best cost, decent housing costs for living either on campus or in an apartment, etc. You may have done this routine with a few different schools before you determined if one was just right for you or as close to it as possible.
