4,000 colleges. 2 million applicants. One very important you.
There is no one else like you. You have dreams and hopes that no one else can completely understand. That is why you are the best person to take the lead on the college search process—Not your parents, your counselor or your closest friends.
Why take a student-driven approach?
- The more you know about the colleges to which you are applying, the better focused your applications and essays will be.
- You’ll be prepared to ask insightful questions during information sessions and college interviews.
- You are most likely to find the best match if you do your own research, rather than relying solely on the opinions of others.
- By exploring specialized interests such as athletics, the arts and academic support, you’ll gain new perspectives on campus life.
