Not only are you in the home stretch of your senior year, but also you’re probably starting to receive acceptance letters from some of the schools you applied to. This is when all your preparation starts to pay off! Doesn’t it feel good?
Before you make your final decision about which college to attend, there are some key elements to keep in mind:
- Take a close look at your financial aid letter. You should’ve received this along with your acceptance letter. Make sure you understand what you’re being offered. If you have questions, contact the school’s financial aid office.
- Block off time for April visits. Reserve the month of April for visiting the colleges where you’ve been accepted. Everything may sound great on paper, but it’s important for you to be on the campus to see if it’s a good fit.
- Stay focused. We’ve been saying it for months now, but that’s only because we can’t stress it enough: your final weeks of high school still count!
At Sullivan University, we understand that this can be a stressful time in your life. We have years of experience when it comes to helping high school seniors navigate the college application process, and we’re happy to share everything we’ve learned with you.
