Juniors: Research colleges

posted in: The College Search | 0

You need to take the helm with college research–your education’s at stake! Set aside some time and actively research your options for colleges. Find out what each college offers and whether it fits what you’re looking for. Visit college websites, take campus tours and find out as much information as you can about each campus in order to intelligently narrow down your options.

You’re the one going to college–not your parents. Take the initiative and become familiar with the colleges you might be interested in applying to. While your parents may favor one college over another, it’s important for you to seek out the college that is right for you. After all, you are the one who’ll be attending!

Discover and learn about all the various opportunities out there. Thoroughly research the different and unique opportunities that are available at each college. Each university offers different academic programs and majors, athletic opportunities, financial aid opportunities, campus organizations, environments and social lives. Figure out what you want from your college experience and seek out those colleges that offer it. If you love what a college has to offer, chances are they will love you back with offers of admission!

We put together an initial personalized college list based on your interests and strengths. Our counselors will take the time to understand what your strengths are and where your interests lie. From our one-on-one consultation, we assess your goals and academic desires; providing you with a list of potential colleges which you can further research. The process continues back and forth until we have a solid collaborative list of schools for you to apply to.

We guide you through an effective college search. With thousands of colleges available throughout the U.S., it may seem overwhelming to find the ones that best fit your needs. Don’t just settle for any college; our experts will help you find the best institutions that match you. We tour colleges and meet with admissions officers on a continuous basis, so we’re well suited to create a list of colleges for you based on our own observations and insights. Many of our students end up at schools that were never initially on their radar. We bring ongoing real-world knowledge to our students and families through our campus tours and our instincts are spot on.
