College Campus Visits

 

I spend weeks on the road to study colleges and meet with admissions folks.

 

WHY? So when it comes time to build your college list, I know the colleges that I am recommending. HOW? Because I have been there. Visiting college campuses is the only way to really get to know a college. Think about it this way….would you marry someone without meeting them first? (Eek, I hope not.)

Remember that nothing takes the place of doing a live “gut-check”; internet research can only take you so far. It might be difficult to describe the feeling you have when you tour a campus but there is a feeling — good or bad. Go experience that feeling.
