Getting In Is Only Half The Battle

Archive for the ‘Picking Your Major’ Category

In keeping with today’s theme of college application deadlines, Suburban Journals (A St. Louis Metro area online paper) has an article about starting the college planning process early.

Here at SMTC I’ve posted numerous articles about starting everything early (especially the saving part), so it should be no surprise that I’d advocate starting the examination and application process early as well.

For members of the class of 2010 deadlines for getting into college are coming around. The Charlotte Observer(.com) has an article that follows the efforts of a couple of this year’s seniors as they prepare and apply for college.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Limit your applications
  • Visualize life there
  • Frustration was normal
  • Most love their choice
  • Make the decision

The main point is really summed up in that last bullet. Make your decision and then GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND APPLY.

As always, the full article can be found here.

The Huffington Post has an article by Jenifer Fox which discusses the idea of getting the school that’s a good fit rather than “the best”.
