Find your best school/club
Like #5, it is hard when you have no previous exposure to general aviation to find the right place. But like any new experience if it doesn't feel right you should trust your instinct. The instructor you found might determine the school/club you go to, and it ends there. If you are weighing it all, then ask yourself what is important? Do you want to fly often, then finding a place that has a lot of each plane just in case the plane is booked, or there are maintenance delays (both of which are very normal). Or is a specific plane or technology more important. Ask your instructor what they think about their workplace, you will be surprised to find how open people are.
