Fit First: The Myth of
College Rankings

Presented By:

The college admissions process can be one of the biggest sources of stress and anxiety for high school students and their families.  You might be worrying and wondering, what do college rankings really measure?

Are students who attend more selective colleges better off later in life? What is “fit” and why does it matter? Grounded in significant long-term research, Challenge Success will address these and other questions about college admissions and finding the place where you can thrive.
