Your college education

There are thousands of colleges and universities to choose from in the United States. Schools can either be private or public institutions and as opposed to many other systems you apply for a spot at the university instead of a specific program. The student applications are evaluated based on SAT/ACT scores, highschool grades, letters of recommendation, and even athletic ability. As soon as an application has been approved you can go ahead and choose the program you'd like to study. The range and layout of programs vary from school to school but most institutions offer a wide variety.
