This post is part of the Best of the Blog series - focused information designed to help you get into the college of your dreams.
Doing your own research makes a big difference when searching for the right college or university. Whether you want scholarship info or you're preparing for the Common App, there’s a ton of information available online (and elsewhere!) to help you get your bearings.
Then again, sometimes it’s really good to go straight to an experienced source.
That's why we sat down with the IPFW Admissions team to get their insider advice on making your college application stand out.
Q1: What’s the single most important thing to do before applying to a college?
A1: Visit campus! Sure, you can learn a lot about a school before you even set foot on campus, there’s no better way to get a real, first-hand feeling for a school than to see it yourself. Come prepared with lots of questions for everyone you see that day. Focus on things to ask the admissions team, students in your major, and your tour guide.
