There are several strong reasons to visit your colleges of interest.
- For one, seeing and learning about the school in person can be a huge help in determining where you want to apply.
- You can find out more about the college from firsthand sources, like your tour guide and other current students.
- All of these impressions can serve as useful material if you need to have a college interview or write a supplemental essay about why you want to attend.
- Finally, having your name on the tour rosters can mark what many admissions officers call “demonstrated interest.”
