Juniors (& certainly seniors too!), it's that time in your high school career: the time in which you start looking at colleges for yourself. You sign up for more information from a couple schools, you visit the websites of a few others, & you attend a lunchtime meeting at school with a college representative. After all that, as well as after reading an informative pamphlet the representative handed you, you're left with a great sense of knowledge about a lot of different schools. But what about having a particular connection to a college?
This fall was a whirlwind of applications, transcripts, ACT scores, and housing deposits. Ya'll have done a great job staying on top of things so far (most of you...). But at this point in the year, college requirements can get a little confusing. You might even be wondering, "What have I already done? What do I have left to do? How do I know I'm not messing everything up?"
Ah. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was visiting colleges, trying to decide where I would spend the next four years. I visited the five universities to which I applied, and ultimately, I decided that MC was the place for me. While college visits are helpful, they are even more helpful if you are prepared.
Michelle comes from Gulfport, MS, and graduated from MC last spring with a degree in history and minor in political science. She obtained the MC trifecta: Miss MC, Homecoming Queen, and the Hall of Fame. Michelle was a former Chocktawker and graduated to the next coolest thing: an Admissions Counselor.
