Description

In this session, Stephanie Shyu, founder of AdmitSee, will guide you through the  steps to identify what colleges will be a good fit for you. Beyond surface-level factors, such as student:teacher ratio or urban/suburban settings, finding the right college for you depends on understanding what you need in order to thrive. The college search process requires radical introspection, open-mindedness, and also the perspective of others whose values match your own. From the brutally honest questions you should ask yourself to resources that will help you answer those questions, Stephanie will help you identify the best strategy to put together a college list.

Key Questions

How do I know if a college is the right fit for me? 

What factors should I consider when I'm looking at a college?

Why is choosing which colleges to apply to important?

What do I need to look for in a college?

What tools and resources can I use during the college search process?

Expected Outcomes

We hope students can learn the importance of doing research before the application process. Students should really understand the colleges they are applying to, and why they want to attend. This will help them narrow down the number of colleges they apply to and this will also help when it comes to putting their application materials together.
