Flipping the College Decision-Making Paradigm

It’s quite shocking when you think about it. Ask any university graduate to describe how they approached three significant life choices: their major, their college, and their career. Ask them to recall, in order, which they chose first, second, and third. They’ll probably tell you that the first thing they chose was the college they wanted to attend. Perhaps they picked a parent’s alma mater or one based upon location.
