College visits in the spring and summer of your junior year: A crucial step in the college admissions process

One of the important pieces in the college admissions and college attendance is college visits. The reason that it is very important that you visit colleges and universities is that there is no other way to decide where you should apply or attend better than visiting the college campuses to see if they are a good fit for your personality. An institution may be a good academically fit but a poor fit for your personality. When you walk on a campus, you will be able to tell if that campus is a good fit for you. Can see yourself spending four years there and be completely happy?

When visiting a college campus, make sure that you bring a copy of your transcript, a copy of your test scores and your resume. If at all possible, schedule a meeting with a college admissions counselor and meet with the counselor by yourself because you are the one going to college not your parents. This can be helpful when and if you do apply to that institution. Most colleges keep track of students who have visited their campuses and this can weigh in your favor when and if you do apply. It is best to visit colleges when classes are still in session so you can get a good feel for campus’ atmosphere but if you can’t do it then, do it during the summer break.
