One thing’s for sure — you’ll be collecting a lot of stuff during your college search! A major point of advice is to get and stay organized.
Your stash will include brochures, applications and a variety of paper and electronic information.
Experts suggest you purchase a file box (plastic or cardboard) and accordion style folders as well as a loose leaf binder and pocket dividers. Make a section and folder for each school you are considering.
- Make addition folders or dividers for key topics of interest such as rankings.
- Organize the information you gather for each school and topic.
