College Tour Tip: Visit 1st Choice School Last

Fotolia_15904691_XS Visit your first-choice school last? If you think about it, it makes good sense. This way your visits to other schools won't be as biased.

You'll likely be more open to embracing new ideas. Then, when you do visit your fav school, you'll be in a much better place to make an informed, clear judgement about whether or not your first-choice is the best choice.   

This tip comes from Eric and Cole Yaverbaum's book, Life's Little College Admissions Insights: Top Tips from the Country's Most Acclaimed Guidance Counselors*. Eric and daugher, Cole, interviewed guidance counselors and admissions consultants from all over the U.S. to create this book chock-full of tips for the college-bound.
