Preparing for College

What does it mean to prepare for college?

Some students may have just started the college search, while others have already submitted applications. But there is more to the process than just picking a college and turning in an admissions application.

If you aren’t accepted into your college of choice, you must look at other schools on your backup list. Although you have your heart set on one school, it may be one of the hardest to get into.

If you are accepted, college preparation doesn’t stop at the acceptance letter. You must also think about entrance exams, choosing a major, scheduling classes and buying books – which are topics discussed in this unit.
