College Visits for Accepted Students

College Visits

It is important to visit the colleges you are accepted to before you make your final decision May 1st.  Even better, spend a night in the dorm and go to a class!   Many colleges actually have an accepted students weekend which has it all scheduled for you.

Evaluating your college visit

College Visits

The college representative who provides your tour can color your opinion of the school in a positive or negative way.  When evaluating your experience, try to separate your feelings about the college from your thoughts about the representative.  Great tours can cause you to falsely elevate your opinion, while an ineffective tour can result in an unfair, lowered opinion.  Either way, consider making an additional visit once you’ve narrowed your choices.
