Visit a College Without Stepping on Campus

Visit a College Without Stepping on Campus
 
What if you can't make the college tour?
 
Setting foot on campus is always a good idea, but it's often not practical. Fortunately, you can get a feel for a college from afar.
 
  • Visit virtually. Go online and you'll find everything from YouTube videos featuring real students to photo tours of the campus.
 
  • Look at student newspapers. You'll find out what students consider important and how they like to have fun.
 
  • Ask about local interviews. Contact the college admissions office to find out if you can interview a local alumnus, a current student home on break, or a regional college representative.
 
The research is worth it.
 
The more you know about the colleges you are considering, the more likely you are to make good choices about where to apply -- and where to attend.

Finding Scholarships You Qualify For

Finding Scholarships You Qualify For
 
Private scholarships can help pay for college.
 
It's possible that you will get financial aid, including scholarships, from your college. But how do you find college money on your own?
 
Brainstorm how you might qualify for scholarships.
 
Think about what makes you unique. For example, did you know there are scholarships for left-handed people? And don't forget your parents. Their residency, heritage, employment, memberships, etc. can all lead to scholarship opportunities.
 
Use an online scholarship search tool.
 
One easy way to find scholarships is to use free online scholarship search tools, such as the Scholarship Finder. Enter key eligibility factors such as major, career, ethnicity, or talent. If you get too many results, narrow down your search using additional factors. If you get too few, use fewer factors.
 
Go local to find less competitive scholarships.
 
Local scholarships are often the easiest to get because there is less competition. And the scholarship judges may be familiar with you or your family. Your counselor probably has local scholarship information. Local chambers of commerce can also help you connect with community sources that may offer scholarships.
 
To learn more about how to hunt for private scholarships -- including how to get the best results when searching online -- read the full article.

Juniors and Seniors: Ten Tips for Successful College Interviews

Ten Tips for Successful College Interviews
 
How to stay calm and wow your interviewer.
 
A strong college interview won't get you admitted, but it can reinforce why you should be. Here are three of our top ten tips for making a great impression.
 
    • Research the school before the interview. Find examples of what you like about the school. This will help you explain to your interviewer why you are applying.
 
    • Anticipate common questions. You may be asked to describe yourself and what you can contribute to the college. Prepare some specific examples or anecdotes that show off your unique talents.
 
  • Ask your own questions. Interviewers expect this and it shows your keen interest in the college. Write down your questions beforehand and bring them to the interview.
 
Your preparation will be noticed.
 
College interviewers are often dismayed by how poorly prepared many students are. Don't be one of them!
