SAT prep in West Caldwell, NJ

11/18/2014
College admission deadlines are around the corner and they mark the end of a long and stressful process. If your children are in their senior year, now is the perfect time to start working on their college application and at The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell, we would like to share a few useful ideas to make this process easier.

Research

Your children should find an institution that offers the field they are planning to study - sure, most students don’t know yet what to study, however they should follow their interests. Don’t forget that your children will be spending four or more years of their lives at college, so make sure they choose a location where they feel comfortable.  

Create a Schedule

Colleges aren’t flexible about deadlines, so you should get together with your children to create a schedule and follow it. Keep in mind that having 5 to 8 applications is a good idea; that way you cover choices that are highly selective and those that offer more realistic chances of your child being accepted. 

Mistakes

It’s possible that your children choose their college based on where their friends or possibly their current boyfriend/girlfriend will attend; however this shouldn’t be a deciding factor. Your children should also apply to colleges even if their admission score is below the average, as you never know which abilities or backgrounds an institution is looking for. Don’t forget that scholarships or low interest loans are available for many students, so don’t allow money to be a problem.

This process definitely requires the support of friends, family and professors to determine the best option for your children. Also, be sure to read this post containing useful information about the SAT writing portion to ensure they ace their exams.  

Another thing you can do to help is to assist your children in reaching their SAT score goal, which means one step closer to getting accepted by the institution they chose and getting financial aid.
