Beau-- Thats interesting. They look decent enough.

Anyways...Just because someone says one college is good doesnt mean that they are. You are going to have to pick one that is best suited to you. I personally would want a school that also had good intermural sports, so that I could play volleyball with other students for fun.

You should be asking yourself:
Are you going to need to stay in residences? Are you going to be able to get funding for out of state/province/country funding? How much is the total schooling? Does the school have financial aid available to you? Do you want to be able to take your horse with you? Does the school have another program that you would like to minor in as well?

You say you have done research on some, but have you called them? Have you looked into what prerequsites (sp) that they need for you to take the course that you want?

(Example...I want to go to school to be a paramedic. My number one choice does not require me to have chemistry, but two other local colleges do require it. I also need Health Care Provider first aid and a specific license.)

Although we can give you suggestions, we are not going to be able to tell you what school will best suit YOU and your needs.
