And in truth, all of those lists of top colleges and universities can't tell you if a school is a good match for your personality, interests and goals.

As you work to narrow down your options, be sure to consider these 15 features of the perfect college. Remember that admissions brochures and college tour guides are going to put the school's best face forward. You may need to ask a few probing questions or do a little research to get enough information to make a fully informed decision about a college.

Each of the 15 features of the perfect college is illustrated by Laura Reyome, the Alfred University graduate who also illustrated the popular article, 12 Facebook Photos You Should Delete Now.
