Colleges like money. Your scholarships and student loans will tell you what class of college you can enter. You need to decide what direction you want your employment to take. Some colleges are more respected in law, others in engineering, and all the other disciplines like medical and so forth. You apply to the ones that specialize in what you like and then you can choose among which ones accept you.
If you go to your library there is a book with the stats of the people who have been accepted to those schools and that will help you get a idea. Many Universities, also have this sort of information on their websites if you look.
Just apply to the places and classes you like and save money for supplies/books etc. Be where youll be happy and concentrate on your studies. Youll be fine. Good luck and God bless.
