Make a college list with at least 9 schools. Include CUNYs, SUNYs, and private schools. To create a solid college list:

  • Review admission requirements for different colleges.
  • Consider academics, finances and learning environment when making your college list.
  • Add “likely” schools- Add at least 6 schools that you are very likely to get into and which are likely affordable for you and your family.
  • Add “target” schools- Add at least 2 more selective schools that you think are the best fit for you academically and financially.
  • Add “reach schools”- Add at least 2 schools that have admissions standards at the high end of what you can meet, and that you’d love to go to if you get in.
