It is that time of the year again–college application season. College visits have been held in the Career Center for the past few months with just a few remaining.
College visits are vital for seniors who are applying to schools around the country. These visits are run by college representatives and are a great way to learn about the campus dynamics, class size, housing, and much more.
If students are not able to tour the campus to which they are applying, college visits are a viable alternative.
Admissions’ officers from colleges of all types and sizes have visited and shared their unique stories.
One wonderful thing about attending college visits is the opportunity to ask questions that relate personally to you. In addition to this, the admissions officers who come to San Marcos are often the people reading your applications.
“Getting their contact information is really helpful in case they offer to read your personal statement,” explains Career Center supervisor Tessa Chu. “The [UCLA] admissions counselor was nice enough to give out her email and say, ‘if you send me your personal statement before October 15, I’ll take a look at it.’”
Be sure to take advantage of these visits because they will help narrow down the tough decisions regarding college choices. Also, hearing about a variety of colleges will help you decide which school is best for you.
