My advice for you is to look at the entirety of what a university has to offer. Do not limit yourself by making assumptions about academic programs, student life or affordability without fully investigating these areas with an Admission representative. Definitely visit the university of your choice before making the final decision to enroll.

Advice: Be patient before making any decision; hastiness can lead down a path you didn’t intend. Really think about your choices, investigate their possible outcomes, share your thoughts with people you trust, listen to your conscience and step out towards your goal with the confidence that you’ve done your part in ensuring you’ve made the best decision. If, however, you later realize you haven’t, remember it’s never too late to set things right.

advice to you is to major in something that makes sense for who you
are. Don’t settle in your heart for something close enough. So many
pursue degrees because it is simply "the next thing to do.” Do not enter
this chapter of your life with mediocre intentions! Pursue your
passions and use this time to serve the greater goals of your life.
Also, never forget the dreams of your childhood. Being an adult is
really about becoming what you admired when you were young and figuring
out how to make it happen. Never give up.
