MaggieSez: March College Decisions and Visits!

March Means College Decisions and College Visits! 

March is pretty much the best month in the college admission cycle – seniors who diligently submitted their applications months ago – it seems like years – finally get their decisions!  Remember – colleges communicate by e-mail and through your portal – so CHECK YOUR E-MAIL daily and check your portals!  You’ll find out days before the envelope arrives in the mail if you stay on top of your portals!

For juniors, the time has come to put your head down and power through the rest of the semester.  This is the last semester of grades colleges will see when you submit your applications this coming fall!  And as spring break rolls around, we bet you’ll be heading off to visit colleges.  We’ve got your back – watch our short “College Visits and College Tours” webinar for some tips on how to make the most of those visits!

Here are a few more articles with info about touring colleges:

Also – you should do your research in advance!  Here’s our video on how to research college websites.
