Education is important and there is no question about that. The manner by which you will be able to get your education is entirely up to you. But if given a choice, I would rather have it by going to the best college my parents could afford. In fact they were able to. That is why when it is my turn; I will work hard for it so I can send my daughter to the best college too. I do not only owe it to my parents to do exactly that but I owe it to my daughter.
Different countries have their own version of their best college. They are entitled because it is where you can get the best education. How can one tell if a certain university is the best? Well, you can always tell by the college rankings that are done yearly based on the performance of its graduating students. The ranking is also based on the number of awards gotten for the year by the students who are currently studying there.
However, you also have to take into consideration the specialization of the college versus the course that you want. It will matter if the college is known for its Engineering course but the course that you want is a business one. Thus, they are the best course for Engineering but they are not necessarily be the best when it comes to business courses.
What you can do is do a little research and pick around 6 colleges that interest you and narrow it down to 3. The 3 colleges should be the best colleges for you. Take the entrance exams and see if you will pass. From the results, you can determine which one is the best college for you.
