Concept/ prototype of college
How does a major effect where I choose to attend?
Problem solving methods
B.) Algorithms- Using an algorithm would mean following a specific process while looking for schools and applying. For example, you could look up the acceptance rate and desired GPA scores for the school you're looking at, then look up the list of majors they offer to see if there is anything you are interested in, then finally looking up the housing offered before deciding if you want to apply. The same process is repeated for each school you look in to.
C.) Heuristics- I used heuristics when looking at colleges, because I knew I didn't want to go anywhere too far from where I live. I narrowed my choices to schools no more than 2 hours away from where I currently live. You could use heuristics to narrow your choices by location, tuition, etc.
D.) Insight- Suddenly realizing where you want to go. I suddenly realized Baylor was the best option for me when I thought about the location, medical program, and housing opportunities. You can also suddenly realize what you want to major in if you've been unsure.
