Ease college-search stress with these tips

Selecting a college can be a stressful process for both students and their parents. These tips will get you started and guide you through the process.

  • Don’t limit your focus too early (by looking only at public or private, etc.).
  • If you are unsure what you want in a college, start visiting a broad variety of schools – urban vs. rural, close to home vs. far away, etc.
  • Take the ACT or SAT early. Most schools will take your highest score, so it’s worth taking at least twice!
  • Use your resources. Make friends with your high school guidance counselor and don’t be afraid to call or e-mail your admission counselor – that’s why we’re here!
  • Keep good records. It’s a good idea to have a folder for every school. Keep track of deadlines for each school on a master calendar.
  • Senior year is important. The admission decision is based on three years of work, but you do need to continue with your college prep curriculum. A national study has shown that your senior year G.P.A. has a direct correlation to how you perform your freshman year, so don’t get lazy!
