Do your research!

Now is a great time to research colleges and create a file or spreadsheet to compare factors that are most important to you. In addition to exploring a college’s own website, you’ll be able to dig even deeper through this list of resources. As part of your research, it’s important that you sign up for virtual information sessions and campus tours. You’ll find links to these virtual events on college admission websites. And as you’re doing this research, think about the “Why this college essay” which you’ll likely need to write for a number of colleges, and which must be very specific to each college. That’s why your initial research into each school is critical; you need to learn about the “nitty-gritty” of each college so you can clearly elaborate in a convincing essay about why you really want to go there, why the school is such a good match for you, and how you can contribute to the campus community.

Make sure to sign up for the email lists and admission blogs of each college in which you’re interested. When you get emails from colleges you’re interested in, be sure to read them and click on several of their links. And you may even want to respond to some of their emails when you have questions or want to follow-up, making a connection with an admission counselor. All this reflects your demonstrated interest, another key factor in college admission.
