My name is Daniel Black and I graduated from Claremont McKenna College in May of 2011 as a dual-major in Economics and Government. I was fortunate enough to spend time working as a "Senior Interviewer" for the Admissions Office which provided me with the opportunity to interview a large number of prospective students. I know what colleges look for (and what turns them off), but more importantly, what steps you can take to distinguish yourself from the crowd.

When it comes to back to school shopping for freshman students there's no need to make a list with the obvious items like notebooks, pencils, erasers and pens. You probably have a whole drawer stuffed full of school supplies like those that you can re-use.

If you are a senior in high school that is getting ready to graduate there are some things that you are going to need to keep in mind. It is really important that you put together a checklist of things that you need to do in order to make sure that you are taking care of everything that needs to be done. If you fail to put together a checklist there is a chance that you will miss a few things that are really important- the end result could be some pretty negative consequences. Avoid all of this by being mindful about the responsibilities that you have to take care of.

Believe it or not, there are still people out there that do not know what the SAT II Subject tests are. If this sounds like you then you need to take a few minutes to listen up as this information could prove to be invaluable.

College is expensive these days- there is now two ways about that. In an era where the cost of everything is on the rise it is important to realize that you may be able to get a better deal on the price of schooling- you just have to know how to ask. Getting a lower price is always something that you should look into. While it is not possible at times, it is important if you want to make sure you are getting the most value for your money. The fact is that the college may not have made you the best offer- when you suspect this it is time for you to take a proactive approach.

Look, if you want to get into the college of your choice you have to take the SAT’s. There is really no two ways about it. Just about every college out there requires that you take this test in order to be admitted into the school. That said, one of the things that is really important in regard to the SAT’s is when you schedule it. The different SAT scheduling strategies that you employ will ensure that you have the best chance of getting the score that you want and subsequently getting into the college that you want.

Creating a high school resume is a really important part of putting your best foot forward when it comes to getting into the college of your choice. The fact of the matter is that the high school resume is a document that can make you or break you in the admissions process. When you decide to put your high school resume together it is important that you take your time and put a lot of thought into it. In addition, you need to make sure that you treat it as a professional document- there should be no spelling or grammar errors.
