Are you still looking for the perfect college choice?   Contrary to popular belief, it’s not too late to find that perfect school.  Every year NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling) publishes its annual Space Availability Survey ResultsThis list includes the names of colleges all over the world that are still accepting qualified students.

While you might not find an Ivy League college on the list, there are plenty of other excellent schools that could be the right college choice for you.  The 362 schools on the list are located in almost every state, include both public and private colleges and universities of all sizes, and offer a huge array of majors. Housing is still available on many campuses and many are offering full financial aid available to qualified students as well.

Do you think your best college choice could be somewhere outside the U.S.?  How about considering a college or university in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, or Italy?  Schools there are looking for qualified students as well.

So, even if you may have gotten a late start on those college applications, there’s still time to find the perfect college choice for you.  Just be sure not to delay.  These spots will fill up quickly and you are likely to need to get recommendations and transcripts before the staff at your school leaves for the summer.
