Questions to Ask Yourself Before Applying To College

The very first thing you must do before beginning the college application process is to narrow down your school choices. Ask yourself these questions:

  1. When is a good time to start this process?
  2. What kinds of classes should I be taking in high school?
  3. How many times should I be taking the SAT/ACT? Do I still need to take standarized tests with most colleges going test-optional?
  4. Do you want to go far away or stay close to home?
  5. What size school do you prefer?
  6. Would you prefer a public or private college?
  7. What type of weather do you prefer?
  8. What kind of workload can you manage?
  9. Is school ranking and recognition important you?
  10. Do you have a particular major or career in mind?
  11. What extra-curricular activities do you want to participate in?
  12. Am I eligible for merit scholarships or Finaicial aid? What is the difference?


Next, talk to our college preparation team to learn more about the school available to you. Based on your answers, we help you determine whether the places you already have in mind are truly good fits and point you towards other opportunities you may have been unaware of.
