Although college planning can be a stressful process, it can also be an exciting one. It is a big step toward your future success.
College planning can be summarized by three operative words: Organize, Research, and Verify.
Organize both your application work and your college exploration process. Approach your college search systematically by setting a schedule for planning and managing your time accordingly.
Research a number of schools by using a variety of resources: the Internet, school literature, your high school career center, and people who know the process. Make sure that you involve your parents with each step of the process.
Verify your college choices by comparing them on the Internet and by visiting the campuses.
