college counselingWading through college admissions can be a long and difficult process. According to US News & World Report, applying to six or seven colleges used to be considered above average; now, students are applying to as many as fifteen. Deciding which colleges should be at the top of your list and which should be alternates is a difficult decision.

College Admissions Counseling

Once you’ve decided where you’ll be sending applications, working through a separate process for each school can be both complicated and frustrating. Admissions essays, scholarship packages, financial aid applications aren’t easy, and this is not a time to take shortcuts and risk making mistakes.

The time crunch doesn’t make this any easier: most colleges open their application windows on August 1st, and some have deadlines as early as October 1st! Staying ahead of the curve means beginning to put packages together long before fall begins.

After months of hard work, that magic day finally comes: you receive your first acceptance letter in the mail! The next day, another—and then another. You applied to a dozen schools and got into seven—great!

Or is it?

All that hard work paid off, but now you have to decide to reject all but one of your admissions offers: talk about pressure!
