Today we are talking about how to organize college information. If you are the parent of a high school junior or senior, you are in the midst of the hunt for where your child is going to go to college. There are so many aspects of this search beginning with prepping for the ACT and SATs, taking college tours, then the application process, and making that final decision. Because I see the world with a binder in every hand, when I considered how to organize college information, it all began with a binder. Here are my tips for how to organize college information one step at a time.
So those are my tips! When you take each tour I hope you’ll get a wonderful overview of what campus life might be like there. When they separate the kids and parents for special sessions, you’ll be sure to see amazing videos that I promise will make you cry. I think that your child will know when a school feels like home. We’ve already visited a few campuses, and it was really clear to my son – even with one I thought for sure he would love but he was just luke warm about. So you’ve got to help them know that when they get there, they will know if its right for them; and if it falls short of their impressions, that’s totally okay.
If you have children from preschool through high school, you'll want to check out our GO MOM!® Back to School Bundle. Full of all the best forms and worksheets around, it has everything you'll need to have an organized school year. And of course, it fits beautifully with our 2016-2017 DIY GO MOM!® Planner ~ all about helping you stay focused on managing your time.
We are going to turn the corner on the application process this summer and I’d love to know if you are the parent of a high school junior or senior…
