Be honest when meeting with college representatives

Wednesday, March 07, 2012
Attending a college fair should be on your "must do" college preparation list. After all, these events provide a chance to go beyond Web sites and brochures and learn about colleges and universities directly from people who work at them. However, you may be concerned about how your meeting with college representatives will affect your chances at their school.

In most cases, there is no need for concern. In the event that you are nervous or feel that you have made a bad first impression, it is unlikely that this conversation will affect your chances during the college admissions process. The college representatives see a high volume of students at each fair. They are there to provide you with information, not to assess you as a candidate for admission.

However, as you never know what will come of a conversation, you should strive to make a good impression. When it is your turn to talk to a school representative, have your questions ready and try not to be nervous. Remember, you are not at an interview; you are merely gathering information on prospective college majors, campus life and financial aid options.

At the same time, be prepared to answer a few questions about yourself. If a representative asks you what you like to do in your spare time, there is no need to make up an answer you feel will impress. Have an honest conversation and you may leave the fair with an entirely new understanding of what it is you want to get out of a school.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800725127-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
