Thoughts about the college selection process:
The college application and admission process can seem daunting when you first begin; however, the School Counselors at Glenelg are here to assist you with this process.
In addition to thoughtful planning, there will be a great deal of important paperwork to complete and deadlines to meet. Good organization is the key. You, your family, and your School Counselor will work together to identify which colleges to investigate, your chances for admission at each, and how you can most effectively present yourself to the institutions to which you apply.
Know both yourself and the colleges.
Keep the college process in perspective:
Choosing colleges to apply to can be confusing, but with personal knowledge and helpful guidelines, you will be able to gather information and make appropriate selections for yourself. Discussions with your parents and School Counselor will assist you in deciding where to apply. Despite all that you might be led to believe, there is not just one “perfect college” for you. It is likely that there will be several appropriate colleges for you to seriously consider. It is our hope that you will approach the college search process with an open mind and a positive attitude so that you might consider all the possibilities that will be available to you.
