Finding the right College for You: College Navigator
Students College Reviews: This website is good for students to check and see what people who actually go to the school think of it. They have thousands of colleges and reviews. (Courtesy of Eseosa A.)
Cappex: Your College Decision Headquarters This website is amazing. When you sign up for it you then include all your school information (grades, awards, SAT/ ACT scores, extracurriculars, etc). After you are able to make a college list and then the site gives you your chances of getting into the colleges that you listed. The website also has a profile for each college so you can check the acceptance rates, tuition fees, diversity rates, distance from home, student reviews, deadlines, and scholarships for that particular school. This site also has a separate section for national scholarships. This site has helped me a lot. (Courtesy of Eseosa A.)

Thank you Morgan for giving a template to how to handle our college preparation. Unfortunately, I am a sophomore, so some of the information does not help me necessarily. I will, atleast, know how to approach this process when it is my turn to complete College Applications. 🙂 Thanks a lot!
