Answering the Five Big Questions

  This decision will be influenced by your answers to the other big questions.  Maybe you know the exact city you wish to live in after graduation, and this will drive your decision.  For others, they know the exact degree they want, and this will determine the university they wish to transfer to.  Others may find that their scholarships or other ways of paying for one university make their choice the most economical choice.  Some folks are set on going to the same university that their parents or friends went to or are currently going to.  All of these choices have merit.
