I’m An Expert Now- Finding Colleges
December 31, 2010 Leave a comment
First of all, look into all the schools that your state has to offer. They’re the cheapest, and unless you have some specific interests and want to major in something that’s not common, your state university will probably cover everything you’ll need. Even if you don’t want to go to any of them, they generally make good safeties.
Sign up for Princeton Review! I got an account on there a while ago, and they’ve got tons of information. They also have a survey you can fill out to match you with schools. You might disagree with some of their choices, but it’s always worth a try.
When you take tests like the PSAT, SAT, PLAN, and ACT, check off that you’re okay with colleges sending you information. I have gotten so much stuff this way, and found out about many schools I had never heard of before. Also, if you do this, you may get offers to apply to a school for free because of your test scores. I applied as a VIP to a couple schools.
And, of course, look into what schools are known for being the best at teaching whatever you’re interested in majoring in! Not that the other schools won’t do a good job, but it’s always worth looking into at least.
