With so many options available students often become overwhelmed when selecting which college is best for them. In this workshop, we will introduce students to the various post-secondary options available as well as college settings in order to make an informed decision regarding their college search. Students will learn to set their individual criteria to conduct a strategic college search. Students will also gain insight into the various factors they should consider when researching their college options and will learn how to evaluate the schools in their initial search. We will review the differences between reach, target, and safety as well as how many schools should be selected for each category.
Students will also learn about the different admissions options and the components of the application. A-List staff will then walk students through the three main college applications: CUNY, SUNY, Common App and Coalition App. By the end of the workshop, students will be equipped with the knowledge to successfully complete their respective applications.
