Schedule an overnight visit to your top 3 college choices
It’s January of your senior year, which means
that — in just a couple months — you’ll be making your final college decision.
To help you make your decision, you should think about visiting your top 3 college choices,
one more time. On these visits, you should plan to go to
classes, and interact with students. The best way to do that, is to see if you can spend
the night at the school. Seeing what the dorm will be like during the
night, as well as the morning, is so important to you, and your peace of mind. Studying in
an atmosphere that is quiet and congenial, is the key to staying focused.
Sure, you can go to the library, but it ‘s really nice to know that you can spend your
study time in your dorm room, or a quiet place in the dorm.
Seeing the dorm atmosphere in the morning is also going to be helpful. While many college
students cherish their sleep and wait till the last minute to make it to class, you might
like to spend more time getting ready in the morning. If that’s you, this is a good time
to see if you can have that time in your dorm suite, or the bathrooms.
In addition to your personal needs, you can speak with students about the school itself,
one more time. This time, choose students that aren’t connected with admissions, and
get their opinions on how they like or dislike the school. Their opinions could be key factors
in making your decision. So get ready to make that final decision,
and schedule an overnight visit to your top 3 choices.
