Hey there! It's wonderful to see you taking advantage of virtual college fairs. My child went through the same process last year, and I've gathered some tips that can help you make the most out of these events. First, it's important to do your research before attending the virtual fair. Make a list of colleges you're interested in and note down any specific questions you want to ask. This will help you make the most of your time during the event. Second, be prepared to take notes during the fair. It can be easy to forget important information, so jotting down key points will be helpful when you're reviewing your options later. Third, don't be shy to ask questions. Representatives are there to help you and provide valuable insights, so take advantage of their knowledge. Finally, follow up with the representatives after the event. Send them an email thanking them for their time and mentioning any specific aspects of the conversation that stood out to you. This will help you stand out and make a positive impression. Good luck and enjoy the virtual college fairs!
