15 The College Search Where should students start? Run a preliminary search using Naviance and College Board Helpful information to consider when researching: GPA, course requirements, test scores, majors, location, cost Develop a broad list of schools (safety, ballpark, reach) Start visiting colleges: Consider size, location, atmosphere, student body, and special programs It is best to visit colleges while they are in session. Take advantage of school vacations! This will be covered in the junior planning seminar series 5

16 Why is junior year so important? Colleges will look for: End of year transcript and GPA Evidence of improvement, demonstrate positive trend over previous years Senior year grades and courses are also important and will be viewed by colleges! 6

17 Where should students be by the fall? Know which post-secondary option they would like to pursue and what requirements you must meet. If they plan to attend college A list of 6-0 prospective schools Have taken the SAT/ACT Have visited a few colleges Have completed a resume, brag sheets, and the Do What You Are inventory Identify teachers to ask for letters of recommendation Begin working on your essay in the summer See your counselor for help as often as needed! 7

18 College Admission Trends Overall number of college applications continues to rise nationally Common Application use has expanded State schools continue to grow in popularity and competitiveness, including CT community colleges Most competitive colleges have not seen a drop in enrollment Increase in Early Decision (ED) & Early Action (EA) applicants Tuition/Room & Board fees continue to rise Financial Aid is competitive 8

19 Moving forward, who does what?! Do Student Parent Take control of the process! Support and encourage your child s genuine interests. Attend the Junior Planning Seminars Begin researching your postsecondary options now to develop a plan (and back-up plan!) Initiate contact with colleges or programs of interest Don t! Encourage them to self-advocate and have them communicate with the college admissions offices directly. Prepare your child for the possibility of disappointment. Give them realistic expectations of your part in paying for college. Ask your parents to make appointments, phone calls or complete applications for you! Call the college admissions offices for them. Wait until senior year to begin your research Complete their applications or write their essays for them. Register the student for the SATs/ACTs

20 Helping your student keep it in perspective Maintain balance as much as possible. Study hard, but have fun too! Participate in activities you enjoy most. Begin the process early so you don't get overwhelmed Take your time on making final decisions about colleges. Remember that there are many potential matches for you; you don't have to find "the one You don't have to have the whole journey mapped out; only the next few steps Ask for help and clarification when needed 2 0
