How do you even start to look for a university?
Well, there are many things to think about first. Where do you want to study? What are your grades or GPA (grade point average)? How much money do you want to spend? Do you need to get a scholarship or some financial help? Do you want to study in a big university or a smaller one? (I'm getting tired of even thinking of the questions!)

We're very lucky to have Sue helping with university applications - here are just a few of her tips for making the process easier. good place to help you with this is a free web site called Petersons. You can choose on page #1 whether you want college (for bachelor's degrees) or graduate schools (for master's degrees). Next you go into the site and choose whether you want to look at the state, your major, or more detailed search options. Then answer as many questions as you can, questions like the ones I asked above. After you do this, you submit your search and get a list of schools that might be best suited to you.
Keep this search list on your account on Petersons site. You can always go back and search each university or college to see the advantages and disadvantages of each of the schools.
