Research college choices through websites or printed guides. Attend college fairs and attend college open houses or plan for college visits. Get a feel for which colleges seem like a good fit. Ask a lot of questions of admissions and financial aid representatives and school or private college counselors. Find out what the requirements are for admission to the college.
A great web resource for researching colleges is www.bigfuture.org. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of questions to ask admissions representatives.
