Picking a College: “Best for Career Interests” or “Best Fit?”

 In its annual survey, Princeton Review asked this question of parents of children entering college. (Note: parents of future law students):

 9) When it comes to choosing which college you (or your child) will attend, which of the following do you think it is most likely to be?

 Here was the response:

 For the first time in 10 years, an equal percentage (42%) of respondents overall said they/their child would likely attend the college that will be "best for career interests" as chose "best overall fit." In previous years, "best overall fit" was the primary choice each year. Only about 1 of 10 respondents (09%) indicated they'd choose the college with the best academic reputation, which for 10 years has been the least chosen.

 I find this response disappointing, but it sends a signal to law schools trying to attract students.

 You can find the rest of the survey here.
