Making the right choice for which college to attend could make or break your educational career. There are a wide variety of students, and they don't all have the same educational needs. Some are fresh out of highschool, some took a gap year, and some are adults going back to earn their degree. What may be a good school for one individual might not be the right school for another student. For-profit schools tend to offer a more flexible schedule with night and weekend classes and typically have a simple admission process. On the other hand, tuition is higher and the main focus is making money rather than serving students' needs. Public schools are more affordable and provide a more robust campus experience, while getting the classes you need could be a challenge as they fill up pretty fast.
