"Choosing a college is a lot less like choosing a product than it is like building a relationship," says President Brian Rosenberg.

Spring brings with it for high school seniors acceptance letters from a variety of colleges and universities. Choosing the right fit can be daunting.

"Many factors go into the decision about which college you might want to attend," says Rosenberg. "Among the most important will be cost but also value. What will you get out of your college experience?"
