[nabs-l] Making the college decision

Hello Mausam,
When I was looking for colleges I first took location into account. I had been living in the country and small towns all my life, and I knew I wanted a more urban environment. I also knew I wanted a smaller size campus, so I was looking at colleges with a population of 5,000/10,000 students. I then heard about my school, Seton Hall University in north Jersey. I was told they had a great disability office, so I did some research and decided to apply. Seton Hall has a population of about 6,000 undergrad and is just outside of New York City. I hope this story was helpful, and please feel free to reach out to me if you have any other questions. Good luck, I know you'll make the right choice!

Hi all,

I hope this time of late night Starbucks runs, final exams, and overall mayhem isn't too excruciating. Luckily it will soon be over, and we can spend time relaxing and recuperating over the holidays.
Halfway through my senior year of high school, I'm up to my ears in transcripts, college applications and scholarships. I know that choosing the right college is unique to everyone, and many different factors go into that final decision for the next four years. I also know that as a blind student, it takes a little extra consideration and research to find a place that can meet all of our needs. I wanted to get your opinions and experiences with choosing your colleges. What did you take into consideration when applying, and then picking your school of choice? Did you encounter any preliminary pitfalls with disability offices? Should I be looking out for any specific land mines?
Thanks, and have a great wrap-up to your fall semester.
