Get Organized! Fiske's Unbeatable System for Applying to College.
Fiske, Edward B.; Steinbrecher, Phyllis
This guide was created to help high school students feel comfortable with the college admissions process. Its step-by-step approach to the process is designed to take the stress out of the task by clearly laying out what must be done and when, beginning with the junior year of high school. The guide contains a calendar that runs from September of the junior year through June of the senior year, listing milestones in the college application process. It also includes an "Application Checklist" which outlines in a grid format the steps that must be taken to apply to colleges. It provides a section to help the student evaluate himself or herself and determine the most important characteristics of a college or university. It describes commonly required standardized tests, lists questions to help prepare for campus visits, and outlines a method for organizing findings from campus visits and interviews. The final section shows how to narrow the college selection and fill out application forms and other forms, and provides basic information on financial aid. (JDD)
