Are you stressed out with college applications? Do you have to juggle college application tasks with homework, dance auditions, varsity games, and social activities? I am sure you have a million of questions to ask regarding your college application process. How to start? Who can help?
Your parents are your number one supporter in this process. They can and will help you in this journey. If you haven’t yet, you should make plans to visit the top colleges on your application list.
Your high school counselor is there to help too. They are there to actually help you with your college planning activities. They can help with the college application process, find a school that is a good fit for you, help find ways to pay for college (scholarships and grants), and help find a career that might interest you.
Your school counselor can definitely guide you and answer a lot of your questions. That’s their job.
Hiring professional college consultants can be an option. Applying for college these days is very competitive and if your parents can afford to pay for professional college consulting help, take advantage of it!
Most parents have high expectations for their kids and I am sure you have big dreams too. Hiring a private tutor or college consultant to help — from SAT test preparation to college applications — is very common.
Most parents are willing to invest to get their kids to the best colleges. Sometimes this is the edge that can help you make it to the school of your choice.
Despite all the available support, you still have to do the work. Get your mind to it. Be organized and pay attention to dates and deadlines.
You will succeed and will be enjoying college campus sometime soon. That’s for sure.
