Make a Pros and Cons List

It may be a bit old-school, but getting your child to write down what he likes and dislikes about each college can help put things in perspective. It's also important that he ranks the factors and not just jot them down. For example, if he cares most about internship opportunities and study abroad programs, those should be placed highest on the list.
