Find the right fit. Spend education dollars wisely. Play the admission game like a pro. Get it right the first time. Maintain domestic tranquility.
Student-to-faculty ratios mislead. While they are oft-cited indicators of teaching quality, these ratios have no bearing on an individual student's educational experience.
Good communication with admissions counselors can make or break it for some students. Know when to make the right moves and how to avoid stepping on toes.
