HS College Planning Tips: for week of Aug 30


HS Seniors:
Finalize Your College Search and Selection

It’s time for high school seniors to review your college search and narrow your selection down to those schools that meet your career objectives. Meet with your school’s guidance counselor to discuss your decision.

Application submission deadlines are fast approaching:

Early november for early submission

January for regular submission

Your Search Categories Include:

  1. search list of 2-3 schools that you could definitely get in
  2. search list of 4-5 schools that you could probably get in
  3. search list of 7-8 schools that you would like to get in
  • Budget how much you can afford for application submission. If the submission costs for 16 or more schools is too high, narrow your search to 3-3-3.
  • Take a final look at your schools to make sure they meet your career requirements. Add or remove schools from your list.
  • Make sure you meet the school requirements (GPA, transcripts, exam scores, etc.). No sense wasting application fees on schools where you don’t meet requirements.
  • Contact those schools that made your final cut. Request an application and other information such as deadlines, required fees, financial aid, etc. Find out if they need your official transcripts at the time you send in your application.

What should you look for in a school:

  • private or public
  • size
  • location
  • type of curriculum
  • quality of education
  • cost
  • admission requirements
  • help with financial aid
  • housing resources
  • nearby facilities
  • campus life
  • security
  • lifestyle
