Going to a school doesn’t have to be a tough choice. The first thing you should decide upon would be your goal. Just exactly what is you want to walk away with in four years (or 1 or 2 or 3). Let’s say you want to be a physical therapist. Great! That immediately narrows down your choice of schools. You’ll want to look for schools that specialize in your goal first. Next you’ll want to look at proximity. Do you have a family and need to be at home? If that’s the case, no problem. There are plenty of online schools that will allow you to earn your degree from the comfort of your living room.
