How to find a college that fits you
Essays and personal statements are
very important
to colleges, especially to the most selective schools. And they're increasing important to a wide range of institutions.

Essays serve as a measure of your writing ability and provide information about your personal background that is not revealed through your application or transcript alone.
Myth: Essays aren't really important to college admissions
Colleges are watching...
Use a professional e-mail address

Be aware of what you and others post to all your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

be sure to stop by the bulletin board outside of
Building 2 Guidance Office
to sign up for
college visits
This is a great opportunity to learn about colleges and speak with admissions counselors regarding the admissions process and student life for each school.
Apply early!
Most schools accept applications on-line
Check college/university websites for deadlines

Take your time completing your application
Be accurate, honest and neat.
Review grammar and spelling!
When you have completed your application, ask someone to review it and check for errors.

Have your test scores (AP, SAT, ACT) sent directly
to the colleges to which you are applying.

Print a paper copy for your records

Check your e-mail account frequently!
Many colleges will communicate via e-mail.
Think of your application essay as your opportunity
to demonstrate your uniqueness to colleges
and stand out form your peers.
