College Choice Calculator
  • College Choice Calculator

    This spreadsheet is a template for comparing colleges based on key factors valued by each individual student. It allows students to use a calculation process to self assess and contrast each of their chosen schools.​


    Choosing the right college requires careful consideration of several key factors, and the College Choice Calculator allows students to evaluate these factors by facilitating an efficient and organized system of comparison. This spreadsheet allows students to scrutinize the different aspects of selecting a college, personally rate how much they value different factors, and self-assess each of their chosen schools based on how well they perform in each of the categories.


    The spreadsheet comes with instructions to guide students through the calculation process as well as a sample tab demonstrating how the final assessment will look. The calculator is best used if the student has someone else (like a parent) lead the effort described in the instructions.
