Tackling Tough Choices


For many students, the quest for a perfect school is one of the most stressful (but also one of the most fun) items to tackle on their college-prep checklist. With so many factors to consider—where friends are going, location and proximity to home, athletic programs and majors offered, price, just to name a few—the process of making a decision can be so overwhelming it's almost debilitating. So how can students avoid having to pull a Hail Mary when college applications and deadlines start approaching? Just ask TXGU near-peer Gabe...

When his dreams of going gridiron pro were crushed in high school, Gabe knew a college degree was something he had to pursue. And when four different, highly-respected colleges offered him acceptance, Gabe suddenly had some serious decision-making to do. So which college did he end up choosing and how?  You'll have to find out in the latest TXGU "How I Got Here" video. Once you're done watching, be sure to check out the accompany lesson plans too—just consider them special plays stashed away in your college-prep playbook.
