The waiting is over. Admission decisions have been made. And some very happy students now have the enviable problem of deciding which college they want to attend.
From now until the May 1 notification deadline, the tables are turned as admission officers try to win over newly admitted students. There will be flattering letters,phone calls and invitations to fun-filled programs designed to get prospective freshmen excited about attending their school.
Remember that these programs will paint the school in the best light. Since you want to learn everything you can before making a final decision, it’s a good idea to look beyond the nice receptions and speeches. Some students skip these events, preferring to see the college on a more typical day. Others have been clear about their first choice school from the start and know where they want to be.
