If you're a college-bound high school senior, you no doubt have a list of candidate schools to which you will be applying this fall and winter. At least you should have a list at this late point in the application season. Regarding the schools on that list, I want to ask you a question:
Why -- I mean truly why -- do you want to attend any of them? What is it about each of them that wants you to make a potential commitment of at least four years of your life to be on campus there?
