I would talk to students who go there and not just about the academics of the school, but about general college life. Let them know that you don't want to hear what the college wants them to tell you, but an honest opinion of the school and the things that kids do for fun. Ask about the helpfulness of different administrative departments on campus and about the surrounding community. For example, at my school, there is tension between the college and the community. There is also very little to do in the community as far as recreation and entertainment. These are important things to know about before making a decision. I would also advise that you visit and look at schools with realistic expectations in mind. Don't believe that college will be like the movies and television because it's not. Know that your college experience will shape who you are and keep that in mind when you are selecting a school. You don't want to go to a school that has the potential to take you in a direction you don't want to go.
Analyze what type of learner the student is and find an academic environment that is conducive. Analyze what living situation the student does best in, and find a school that provides that.
