What resources are available to help me with my college applications?

Hi all! I'm a junior and I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by the college application process. I know there are resources out there to help me, but I'm not sure where to find them or which ones are most helpful. Can anyone recommend any resources or services that they've found helpful during their application journey? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! It's great to see that you're being proactive about the college application process. There are quite a few resources available to help you navigate this journey, and I'll share some of them with you. First off, your high school guidance counselor can be a valuable resource. They can provide guidance on course selection, extracurricular activities, and help you create a list of colleges that match your interests and goals. Additionally, they can assist with letters of recommendation and financial aid questions. Another resource is the College Board's website (collegeboard.org), which hosts information about colleges, application requirements, and financial aid. They also offer a college search tool that can help you find schools that fit your criteria. For essay writing and application organization, websites like The Common Application (commonapp.org) and Coalition for College (coalitionforcollegeaccess.org) can be of great help. Lastly, don't overlook local resources like college fairs, workshops, and information sessions offered by colleges and nonprofit organizations. These events can provide you with an opportunity to speak directly with admissions representatives and gain valuable insights. I hope this helps, and good luck on your college application journey!
