If you are a high school student right now, it is almost college fair season, and you should take advantage of the opportunity. College fairs are one of the few times that you can easily talk to a representative from a variety of colleges all in one room. This makes it easy to compare. To take full advantage of the opportunity, you want to come prepared. While the representatives from each college have the goal of recruitment, your goal is different. You need to find out what is the best school for you. To do this, you have to know what you are looking for before you walk in the door. Have your college plan in place. (Our book can help you with that) Below are some questions to help you get started.
