Here is an opportunity coming up in October that might be interesting as students seek out colleges. Marita Espinoza, homeschool mom/member of Eureka! Honor Society, passed this on to me with the following note. Thanks, Marita!
This is an efficient way to talk with many college representatives and students in one place in a relatively short amount of time. When you register, you are given a bar code which you can have each college scan when you visit their table. For colleges that consider “level of interest” an important factor in admission, the scanning of your student’s barcode counts as an indicator of interest and will earn you those points when you apply. They will also keep you on their email and snail mail lists. Some of them will even help your student stay on track with their application. It’s free.
