What are some good resources for college admissions advice?

Hey guys! I'm a junior and I'm trying to gather as much information as possible about the college admissions process. What are some good resources (websites, books, etc.) that you've found helpful? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you're starting early to gather information about the college admissions process. I've been through this with my own child, and I can share some resources that we found helpful. First, the College Board website (collegeboard.org) is a great place to start. They have information on SAT/ACT testing, college search tools, and financial aid. Another website you might find useful is the Common Application (commonapp.org), which is used by many colleges and universities for their application process. In terms of books, I highly recommend 'The College Admission Handbook' and 'Fiske Guide to Colleges'. These books provide valuable insights into the admissions process and help you understand what colleges are looking for in applicants. Additionally, you can check out online forums like College Confidential and Reddit's Applying to College subreddit for advice from fellow students and parents. Best of luck with your college search!
