Deciding where to apply for college is a daunting task, especially when physically visiting schools is’t an option. Between learning about what each school has to offer, researching a college’s programs, campus life, and costs, and eventually, narrowing your list to a final few schools, conducting college research is a process that takes time. And sometimes, reviewing pages of stats on college website just doesn’t quite cut it when it comes to making one of the most important decisions of your life.
