You are probably questioning whether or not it is truly time to begin your college search. You may wonder where the time has gone. Well, it is time to embark on your exciting college journey.
Fascinating ... and Frustrating Process
The process of choosing the "right" college is both fascinating and frustrating. It is fascinating because there are so many fine options among which to choose; yet frustrating because it is difficult to know on what basis to decide: size? prestige? location? social life; cost? strong areas of study? career interest? friends who are attending a particular college?.. the list could go on and on.
The process itself can be bewildering as well, a labyrinth of deadlines, forms, tests, etc. through which to maneuver. It also can be difficult to have a good sense of which colleges are appropriate for you based on what you have to offer them in terms of your academic credentials and personal/co-curricular strengths, as well as, what they have to offer you.
In the coming months, you will find yourself making more decisions than you ever have before. This is exactly what should be happening. As exciting, interesting, or overwhelming as the college selection process may be for you, please remember two things:
All of the options you have are a result of your efforts and the opportunities you have been given.
You have a support network of administrators, school counselors, and parents to assist you. Please communicate early with them.
Success at End of the Road
Along the way, you'll meet confusing detours and tough climbs. You'll have moments of exhilaration and ones of discouragement as well. While you should take the search seriously, try to enjoy it as well. The system does work - you will be admitted to college, you will go and most likely, you will have a rewarding experience where you end up.
Happy hunting and good luck!
Now is the time to start planning for college, while you've got some time to really explore your options.
