MaggieSez: March College Visit Madness!


March Means College Visits! 

college counseling for high school students
We wish our Class of 2019 students the “Luck ‘o the Irish” as they await their college decisions later this month!

​Maggie is our penguin mascot – and MaggieSez that March is time to plan your spring break college visit trip!  No, you shouldn’t feel like you need to visit every college your child may apply to, but it’s a nice way to see if s/he connects with the feeling on campus.  Here’s an article from Georgia Tech’s admission office about planning your college visits.  We’ve also written pretty extensively on our blog about college visits; here are some links!
