Hello! It's great that you're starting your college visits as a junior. I remember when my child was in your shoes, and I have some tips to help you prepare for your visits. First, make a list of the colleges you're interested in and do some research on each one. This will help you narrow down your choices and focus on what you really want in a college. Once you have your list, contact the admissions offices to schedule tours and information sessions. They can also help you plan your visit, including arranging overnight stays or meetings with faculty if you're interested. Before your visit, prepare a list of questions you want to ask your tour guide or admissions representative. Think about what's important to you, such as class sizes, internship opportunities, or study abroad programs. Finally, don't forget to take notes and photos during your visits to help you remember your impressions of each college. Good luck and have fun exploring your options!
