March is the time colleges release their decisions. After many months of hard work, the waiting will soon be done. If you put together a balanced list of safety, target and reach schools, it’s likely that you have at least one acceptance on the way.
Take time to evaluate your choices carefully. Your goal is to select a school where you feel comfortable, where you’ll be challenged academically and where you feel you belong. Look through the course offerings and familiarize yourself with the academic programs available. Try to get an understanding for a school’s personality and what the school community has to offer. You’ll want to be excited to be there and to get actively engaged.
Keep in mind, it’s what you do once you’re at college, not where you attend college that will make the difference post-graduation. Stay focused on the positive news and the college life you have to look forward to.
