Today we attended the biggest college fair on the East Coast, supposedly. We walked to the OMAC, which is the school gym. It has a track and every type of equipment you could imagine. It was a work out just walking there for me.
Well, once we got there we were given a Brown bag and a list of all the schools that were there.
There were about 125 schools there from community colleges to schools like Yale and Stanford. There were only a handful of colleges that were on the West Coast -- the main one being Stanford. There were numerous colleges but only a few were in everyone's interests. These included Columbia, Yale, and Dartmouth.
I was fortunate enough to be able to actually go to all of them. I personally didn't find many colleges that I would consider due to them being on the East Coast. The only colleges that I would come to, if accepted, would be Brown, Dartmouth, and Columbia.
Those who were more willing to go out of state for college found the college fair a great resource and were really happy that they had it.
