Here are some suggestions of what high school juniors can work on to help move along their college search process this September:This includes evaluating different college options, attending college fairs, exploring new schools and creating your colleges list. Once you’ve created a list, work on ordering your list and narrowing it down by prioritizing it. You can do this by comparing your list to criteria you’re looking for in a college and seeing which colleges on your list match up to your criteria. You can then cross off colleges that don’t meet your criteria and bump up colleges that meet all or most of your needs.If you’re looking for especially beautiful campuses to visit, check out Fastweb’s list of the top ten fall college campuses.
