You May Get

Public University

You love large crowds and experiencing a diverse cultural environment. With your love of sports, school spirit, and ability to make yourself known in a crowd, you belong at a large, public university such as a UCLA, San Diego State, or Penn State.

Private University

You are very focused and driven, and you prefer to work in small groups. You thrive on competition and enjoy a more quiet, peaceful environment, so you belong at a small, private school such as Yale or Williams. 

Community College

You're mostly unsure about the direction you want to head in life, and you haven't quite reached the maturity and independence level to start life at a university, so you should spend a few years in community college.
