How to Make the Most of Virtual College Tour
There are so many choices for high school students when it comes to selecting a college. Sometimes it isn’t convenient for families to take off of work to visit a school. But there is another option…a virtual tour! It is vital to eventually visit a school in person but taking an online tour can help narrow down your students’ search. Here are some tips to help students and parents examine colleges virtually:
1. Search Multiple Online Tours
2. Write Down Requirements
3. Listen for Student’s Viewpoints
4. Track and Prioritize Your College Choices
5. Get On Mailing Lists (this can help with being invited to open houses)
