5 Tips for Making it Through the College Application Process

Whether you are just starting the college search process or you're approaching a final decision, there's no doubt that applying to college is like a part-time job for the family. Below are the top 5 tips for students going through the college application process from Stuart Country Day School Director of College Counseling, Robyn Henry 

Knowledge is power - One of the easiest ways to stress out is to stare into the unknown. Even though there are certainly some parts of the college search that are a mystery, most of it can be figured out with a little research.  We give you the tools and information you need to find colleges that are the best fit for you academically and socially.  But you take ownership of the college process.

 

Deadlines matter - We start the college process early so you can finish without a rushed panic. Pay close attention to when things are due, and plan accordingly. When you make a timeline and stick to it, nothing is last minute. Planning now reduces anxiety later.

 

Connect with folks at each college on your list - If you can, meet the admission rep from each college on your list.  Attend an information session and/go on a campus tour if you have the opportunity to visit the campus.  Follow up by email or phone with the admission officer and students you met during the course of the day.  If possible, you should also connect with a current student, a professor, or a coach.

 

Every college on your list should be a place you would like to attend - You don't have to be in love with each school, but you should definitely be able to picture yourself there as a challenged and satisfied student.

 

Grades and the rigor of your schedule matter more than SAT/ACT - Choose challenging classes in every subject ... and do your best work!
