Notes:
 
Slide 1: There are 3,500 plus colleges and universities in the United States. How, among the many, will you choose the few that will be right for you? This five-part series is designed to help filter out the nonsense so that you can focus on the most important factors at play as you find the school that is right for you. Part 4 begins by creating a list of colleges to investigate. You might want to create a section of a notebook for keeping track of your research. Make notes initially about size, location, selectivity, and special features and programs based upon some of the qualities and characteristics that are important to you. Be honest about the kind of student you are. In terms of grades and standardized test scores, what kind of student are you? · A student with 2100-2400 on the SAT or 28-36 on the ACT · B student with 1800-2100 on the SAT or 22-27 on the ACT · B to C student with 1400-1800 on the SAT or 18-21 on the ACT Once you can be honest with yourself, you can begin to categorize colleges as Reach/Risky, Realistic/True Possibility, and Likely/Safety. College is what you make it, and as I have said in other articles, the greatest advantage you can have at any school (competitive or otherwise) is a curious, motivated mind. If you have been less than stellar in high school it is okay. Some of the most successful people you will encounter studied at schools that were not considered top tier. No school can guarantee success in life to anyone. Here are tips to help you narrow down the colleges that interest you Get feedback: talk with your counselor who is a professional in the area of college counseling. Meet with your counselor and keep open lines of communication. Counselors are there to answer questions and make suggestions, but they are not there to do your work for you. Research is work. Bring your research, ideas and questions to your meetings. Take a Saturday vacation (to the bookstore) and take advantage of some of the excellent guidebooks available for purchase or in the reference area (try the library too). If you don't have money don't buy them - go to the bookstore and read through them (bring some snack money and relax). Read well known guides such as The Fiske Guide to Colleges or The College Board's College Handbook for detailed program information. Try to stay away from "best" books unless they present schools and ideas that you are unfamiliar with (i.e. you need not read a book to learn that Harvard and Yale are good schools). You can do searches online through the College Board and other programs that allow you to identify particular aspects of colleges, and filter results through your criteria. Continue to narrow done schools by visiting their websites. You can submit your name online to get on a particular college's mailing list or to receive catalogs, view books, and applications. Don't forget to attend visits by college representatives in your area - even if you are not interested in every school that presents information, it is a great exercise to hear about a particular school from a perspective other than your own. Plus, college fairs are great opportunities to meet with the people who will probably be reading your application.
Slide 2: A list of 20 or more colleges to research is reasonable. You need to begin narrowing your list down to a reasonable six to ten colleges. Narrowing down the list is a task made successful by good research. A good list will include some reach, target and safety schools. Then you can begin to further narrow down the search to schools you will visit (virtually or in-person). Kenneth fuller enjoys helping college students overcome academic challenges.
