There are many college fairs available to high school students. When you look at all the colleges, pay attention to yourself and consider the reasons why you skipped a certain college. That will tell you the kinds of colleges that you might be interested in.
You will want your kids to look as well, because there may be something about that college that they have never realized before. You are going to find out fascinating things as you look.
You can give them your address. If you’re interested in a certain college it is a good idea for you to sign up on their forms because then they’ll be reaching out to you. If they like you, they’ll continue to pursue you and send you more information.
One of the best ways to have colleges search for you, as a student, is to take the PSAT test. It will ask you a series of questions about who you are. The colleges that want that particular kind of student will pursue you.
Be prepared, though. When you sign up for that information on the PSAT, you’re going to get a tsunami of paper work in your mailbox. You have to look through it carefully to decide, but that is one good way to find a college that wants you.
The other thing that you can do is to search for colleges yourself. The US News and World Report puts out their annual edition of great colleges. Those have a lot to do with the SAT average colleges. The U Can website does not judge colleges by SAT scores, so you can go to the U Can website, read a few snippets of the colleges, click the link, and go directly to the college website.
As you look through these colleges, think and make the first cut. There are thousands of colleges out there and you can’t possibly know all of them intimately well. You need to make the first cut and decide who you’re going to research.
