How to Choose Best College?

TWALKITOUT: Vidit got hold of a great college after his 12th grade exams while watching television. He had no knowledge on how to choose best college for himself. This advertisement on TV showed all the best facilities on campus, huge libraries, play fields, staff, labs etc. Vidit got highly impressed and took off to this extraordinarily expensive college without confirming its past track record, placement records and years of excellence. As the degree came to its final year, Vidit had nothing in hand apart from the glorious 4 years of fun and photographs.
