Narrowing Down My List

kaima7kaima7 1 replies1 threads New Member
I've been looking at a lot of colleges to complete a Bachelor's in Social Work, Education, or a related field. Mostly liberal arts or research universities. I'm currently a sophomore, and found these schools seem to be the best for me when I apply.

- University of Connecticut
- State University of New York at Oneonta
- Eastern Connecticut State University
- Southern Connecticut State University
- Western Connecticut State University
- University of Massachusetts - Amherst
- Western New England University
- Lesley University
- Westfield State University
- Castleton University
- University of New Hampshire
- Plymouth State University
- University of New England
- University of Maine - Farmington
- University of Southern Maine

I want to narrow down to around 11 or 10 colleges, but I'm having trouble. Can anyone give me advice on some schools I could knock off or should avoid. Thank you.

    Have you run the NPC (Net Price Calculator) for each school? Although it's a way off, once you and your parents determine which of these colleges just are not affordable, that's going to knock a few off.

    Do you live in MA or CT?

    Live in NJ, but do not plan to for college. I may be living in CT or MA by my Junior Year, based on some family issues surrounding moving, but not sure right now. Definitely will check out the NPCs.
