“Today the School, Tomorrow the World. Global Education for a Global Society” STEP 1: KNOW YOURSELF Take a self-inventory – get to know yourself. A college that is right for you will depend upon your individual goals and characteristics: ● Goals ● Knowledge ● Public Service ● Money ● Creative Freedom ● Prestige ● What kind of person do you wish to become? ● Of your particular gifts and strengths, which would you most like to develop? ● What are your academic strengths and weaknesses? ● Where do you excel? ● Do you excel in any extra- curricular or non-school activities? ● What social interests do you have? ● How do you spend your free time? ● How do you relax? ● What are your work habits? ● Would you expect to thrive at a highly competitive college or one where the program was less demanding? ● What kind of academic extra-curricular balance would help you to grow academically and socially? ● How do you learn best? ● Do you work best independently or with others? 4

“Today the School, Tomorrow the World. Global Education for a Global Society” STEP 2: GET TO KNOW THE COLLEGES Establish a list of criteria for the college you would like to attend. Know the TYPE of school you want to attend: ● Do you want to attend a 2 or 4-year school, college, university, or technical school? ● Do some reading about each type of college, university or technical school. SELECTIVITY: ● How selective do you want the college to be? Admission decisions vary widely from institution to institution. ● On the basis of your grades, college admission tests, and special talents, develop a range of admissibility for yourself. ● Remember, no single factor (particularly SAT), will, by itself, determine admission. MAJOR: What majors are you looking for? If you are like most students, you aren’t sure. That’s o.k. Seek colleges that offer a broad curriculum so that you have the flexibility to change majors as your interests change. Of course, if you are anxious to pursue a certain specialty, such as engineering or architecture, be sure you look for schools with strong programs in those areas. PRICE RANGE: WITH YOUR PARENTS, decide what you can afford to pay. Total expenses vary greatly among schools. Don’t rule out a college simply because of cost. Most institutions have scholarships, loans, grants and jobs to help pay bills. Please note that as a District of Columbia Residents you qualify for the DC Tuition Assistance Grant (DCTAG). Please ensure that you meet with your guidance counselor to register and find out additional information. SIZE OF SCHOOL: Does the idea of a large school appeal to you, or is it fulfilling?
