College – Tips and Resources

There are SO many tools and resources available to you to find a school that’s the right fit for you! This is just a sampling of what’s out there for you…  

Big Future by Collegeboard  Probably my favorite website to use when researching colleges.  You can search for colleges around the country based on the majors they offer, as well as other factors that are important to you.
Cappex: This site not only gives you access to over 3,000 college profiles, but a comprehensive listing of over $11 BILLION dollars in institutional merit-based scholarships!
Zinch: Create a profile on Zinch – colleges nationwide search those profiles looking for new freshmen. Maybe they’ll find YOU…
U.S. News College Rankings: Search for 4-year or graduate schools – even schools in other countries!
The Princeton Review: They offer SAT and ACT prep work, including practice testing, but the also have a Best Fit College Search that will find out who you are, then match schools to your profile.
Peterson’s: Their Planner can be used two ways – a simple search by college name, or an advanced search that pinpoints what schools fit your needs.

Use all of these tools and you’ll be prepared to choose the school that’s best for you!
