You’ve gone through the admission process once, during which you learned quite a bit about how to research colleges and how to get information on majors, costs, and financial aid. You also know more about what’s important to you in your college choice, and you can use some of the same tools—an interview, open house, campus tours, and websites—to learn more about those colleges you’re considering now. Pay close attention to the qualities that you like and dislike in your current college, and use those in your search criteria. Don’t forget to investigate deadlines and admission requirements to be sure you have all your information where it needs to be on time.
