If you haven't visited all of the colleges to which you're applying, visit schools early this fall. The application season is upon you!

If you’re a senior who hasn’t yet had the chance to visit all of the colleges you wish to apply to, you should be doing that now. Many people suggest touring colleges over the summer. You’re off from school. You have more free time. You won’t have to miss classes and fall behind on your work. The problem is that college students aren’t usually around campuses during the summer months…so how can a prospective student truly get a sense of a university? There are exceptions. Sophomores at Dartmouth College, for instance, are required to be on campus. But Dartmouth is the exception, not the rule. If you find yourself in this predicament, fall college visits are vitally important!

If you made the mistake of not touring colleges during your sophomore and junior years, you should be doing it now. If it means missing a day of school, miss a day of school. Be sure to catch up on your work but visiting colleges so that you can get a better sense of where exactly you want to spend the next four years of your life is important, too! It’s also important because you need to write about specifics in your college essays which you should be writing now…if you haven’t already started (it would have been better had you started earlier in the summer!). When you go to visit colleges, take a notebook. Write down things that interest you so that you can reference specifics later on when you sit down to write your college essays — or even if it’s just to weigh which universities you like the best. You may forget if you don’t write it all down!
