How do students compare what Art programs are right for them?

Just like engineering students pick the right schools. If you can check off every want, need & desire about a college from your list, it's surely right for you.

How do students compare what Art programs are right for them?

Begin by finding schools that offer your particular discipline. Are you a visual artist, graphic artist, dancer, theater tech, actor, photographer, etc? You may want to keep an open mind, especially in visual arts, because you may not have had an opportunity to try certain fields, such as print making, in high school. Once you’ve found the schools offering your discipline, make your comparison as you would any other college programs. When you visit, do you feel comfortable? Do you like the people? Will the program give you exposure and opportunities you desire? Bottom line: can you picture yourself happy and successful there?
