Producing a List of Schools
Thanks to your own introspective work, your conversations with people you trust, your college visits, and your research on websites like unigo.com and Naviance, you should have a good idea of a chunk of schools at which you would be comfortable spending four years. That is, the following list should include the accumulated awareness of your personal preferences and school priorities that we have cultivated together.
Please take a moment, open Word or TextEdit, and make a list of your top 15 schools.
Done that? Great! Now, if you’re like most, you probably have more than fifteen schools on your radar screen. So do take a second look to make sure these fifteen are the schools most representative of your priorities, preferences, and goals.
