It's not easy to decide which college to attend when there are so many options available for student athletes. One of our goals at College Factual is to give you as much information as we can - such as our Best Colleges for Women's Basketball in Louisiana ranking - to help you make that decision.

Our analysis looked at 12 schools in Louisiana to determine which ones were the best for Women's Basketball athletes in Louisiana. Instead of depending on subjective information, we focus on objective factors to determine this ranking. These factors include such things as the athletic competitiveness of the school and the school's overall quality. This means that a school must provide students with a great education in addition to having a good sports team if it wants to rank well.

One Size Does Not Fit All

We know that one set of rankings doesn't always help you determine the best school for you, so we've created the ability to narrow your list by location as well as alternative rankings that prioritize different factors such as those of importance to online students or returning adults or those who value diversity and value for your money.

We've created a tool called College Combat that lets you create your own customized comparisons based on the factors that matter the most to you. We encourage you to try it out and pit your favorite colleges and universities head to head! If you don't have time right now, you can bookmark it for later.
