The questions I ask when a student is trying to find that "just right" school is if after a visit, can they see themselves on the campus, fitting in, being stuck in a dorm room with a nasty cold, socializing, etc. I understand that for many, the quality of the education is most important but for me, it is a matter of comfort and ease. If a student does not feel at home, their studies and grades will suffer. One can measure the quality of an institutions education by looking over many forms of data but comfort can only be determined by visiting and walking a campus. The good fit comes into play if a student can see themselves shoulder to shoulder with the students already there. The education will follow if the student is at ease keeping homesickness at bay.
