About Admissions

Choosing a college means more than deciding where you'll be spending the next four years of your life — it also helps you map out your life's path. After all, you'll want to explore the career options that fit your personality, evaluate where you'll make lasting connections and – most importantly – pick a school where you'll be happy. That's why College Confidential is with you every step of the way, from creating your college list to selecting a roommate.

Our resident experts can help you smooth the path of college admissions, offering advice on how to write a college essay that gets attention, what to do if you're wait-listed, finding money for college and many other topics that are essential to your decision-making process. We also offer monthly checklists for all age groups so you can ensure that you're on the right timeline and that you don't let anything fall through the cracks during each month of the admissions process. And if you'd like us to dedicate our expert resources to a topic that you don't see on the site, please don't hesitate to contact us.
