Tips for Starting Your Applications
We know many of you, ourselves included, are probably stressed about college applications and the admissions process. Extracurricular activities canceled, standardized tests postponed, summer opportunities are scarce- the list goes on! However, we’re here to help you navigate through these difficult times.
Since school is out and we are all stuck at home (social distancing!), now is the perfect time to begin your college search, if you haven’t already. In order to figure out what colleges are suitable for your individual needs, you need to determine what you like and dislike about each potential college. It may seem like a daunting task, but we have gathered the perfect resources to give you a good head start.
Below are a few websites that we believe are great resources to help narrow down your college list. These websites can help you figure out what exactly you should be looking for in your research and can provide information about the admission selectivity, academics, size, social life, etc.
Along with finding information about your potential colleges, you need a way to organize your research! Here are a few spreadsheets that we have gathered which can help you accomplish this task. Feel free to customize them to include specific characteristics that are important to YOU.
