Video: Getting Into College

by

You’ve probably finished filling out and submitting all your college applications, unless you’re applying to a school with rolling admission. But that’s far from the end of a college-bound student’s work! Janice has a few reminders for what to do now that your applications have been submitted. Check out the video below.

Financial aid (0:26)

Some colleges require a separate financial aid application or a separate application for specific scholarships. Make sure you’re aware of those applications and their deadlines, and send in the proper paperwork before it’s due.

Scholarships (0:45)

On top of scholarships awarded directly from your college or university, you may be eligible for many third-party scholarships. You can find these scholarships anywhere, from local businesses to scholarship websites. (Hint: CollegeXpress has tons of scholarships!)

Mid-year reports (1:35)

Make sure your mid-year reports reflect your best possible grades. Check yourself if you’re starting to get caught up in senioritis. Talk to your teachers if you’ve been struggling recently and make sure you end the year on a high note.

Interviews (2:01)

There might still be time for you to go on college interviews! Talk to your admission counselor to see if there are any alumni in your area who you can interview with.

More campus tours (2:51)

Now that you’ve applied, head back to those colleges for campus tours. Make sure you really love the campus. Talk to current students and really get a feel for where you want to go when you’re accepted to college.
