Finding a student's fit is important in today's school search journey. More than being a reputable school, one has to consider how fit or suitable the school is for the student's needs and wants. Cialfo's Preference Fit allows students and counselors to understand what the student prioritizes in their school search, considering several factors mentioned below.
Cialfo's Preference Fit is made up of several questions that come from the following categories:
Academic: questions based on academic preference
Location: questions based on the school's location
Financial: questions based on budgetary or financial factors
People: questions based on the importance of people resources
Facilities: questions based on the school's facilities
Demographics: questions based on the school's demographics
Other: section for the user to provide more context on what is important to them
In using Cialfo Preference Fit, the student will start to consider different factors in their college search that they may not have considered before. After answering the questions, Cialfo will provide recommended universities based on the responses provided by the student.
