There is a wide range of resources to help you choose the university that will be the best fit.
1. Perhaps the best resources for choosing a university (the most accessible) are online university search engines, including:
2. You may wish to use print guides, which allow you to identify universities offering degrees in your academic area of interest and provide short profiles of US universities. An example would be the Peterson's Guides.
3. You will want to talk with teachers, professors, professionals in the field you want to pursue, etc. for their advice on universities that may be a good fit for you.
4. However, the best place to find the most up-to-date information on a particular university is the university website itself. Look at the academic department, international student services, financial aid and student activities pages.
