College Information

   
Planning on visiting a college campus?  Great idea!  Colleges keep track of any contact a student has had with them (ie. campus visits/tour, college fairs, meeting with college admissions reps. that visit the high school, phone calls, etc.).  If your acceptance is "on the fence", having documented contacts with the college shows interest and can be enough to go in your favor for an admission's acceptance.  Use this College Campus Visit Questions and Rating Sheet  to help you record your visit while the info. is still fresh in your mind.  Use the attached checklist for each college visit then compare notes later.
