Starting the college search can be a daunting task. I know, I’ve been there, twice! It helps a lot if you can pick 2 or 3 features that colleges possess that are important to you (ex. urban/rural, pre-med program, swim team). Identifying a few of these things narrows the field tremendously. To continue narrowing the field attend a few college fairs. Talk to the representatives from schools on your radar. What they have to say may help you make the decision to continue to pursue that school or cross it off your list. The more contacts you make the better informed your decisions will be and the more colleges will be aware of your interest.
