Summer is over and a new semester has arrived. So, you're probably wondering: What should my student be doing to prepare for college?Help your child begin by creating a list of what they’re looking for in a college. From there, you can research schools they’re interested in and determine if each institution has what they’re looking for. Cross off any colleges that don’t meet their criteria. This exercise will help them determine what’s really important to their college experience – or if they can live without a specific course or extracurricular to ensure that they can attend their dream school. Finally, rank their college list based on which schools meet the most criteria. This will help you prioritize fall college visits.
