Welcome to the College Selection Process
Thanks for coming!
Junior year is time for identifying specific colleges that match your abilities, talents, personality and family preferences. Have a list of 5–15 by the end of the year.
1. Investigating colleges is an unpleasant chore.
2. There is a PERFECT college for everyone.
3. I’ve never heard of this college, so it can’t be any good.
4. I heard that a student from another high school got into College X with lower GPA & test scores than mine. How can that be?
5. There is no way my family can afford an expensive college.
6. To find the right college, you must first decide on a major or career.
7. The most important factor in admissions is SAT/ACT test scores.
8. Go for the easy “A” in a less difficult class.
