Myth #111 – I only need to apply to one college

Applying to multiple schools is a smart move to help you keep your options open. Having a few choices allows you to weigh your options and opportunities, and find the best fit for you. Applying to multiple colleges during your senior year of high school lets you make a more informed decision on where to attend.

Students should take costs into consideration when finalizing their future plans. You could be eligible for grants and scholarships, which can help you make the right decision for you. There is also always the possibility that you may not get accepted to your top college choice, so applying to multiple schools helps to make sure you don’t end up without a plan. Consider applying to multiple schools, going on campus visits, looking at the types of degree programs offered, and reviewing your financial aid offer before making a final decision.
