Part 2: Is College Worth It?

These are my criteria that I have chosen to rate my three alternatives: cost, rank, percentage of acceptance, and location. The cost and location both have a weight of 3 because it is important for me how much the college will cost and where it would take place. The percentage of acceptance has a weight of 2 because it would be nice if the percentage is high so I can get into the college more easily. The ranking of the colleges weighs the least because it does not play a major roll in my process of choosing my best college I would like to attend. The three colleges (alternatives) are University of Tokyo, Boston University, and Imperial College London.
