College Search Tips

I have  many FREE college search tips on Educated Quest related to admissions, choosing a major, comparing schools, visiting college campuses, financial aid, impending education policies, internship and entry-level job searches, and much more!

You won’t find many of these college search pieces on any other college admissions Web site or in the books and magazines at your nearest bookstore. These tips are based on my campus visits as well as my experiences doing business with colleges and universities. These tips may help you consider academic programs or to do your homework to find your “best fit” schools.
