Season 2, Episode 4: College Tours

Why are college tours important? Colleges are becoming more interested in Informed Interest and Demonstrated Interest.

  • Informed Interest: How well a student knows a college and how he or she plans to contribute to the campus environment. 
    • Show informed interest through compelling supplemental essays and interviews. Review your research over the summer that went into building your college list and get a head start on your essays.
  • Demonstrated Interest: A college’s gauge of how likely a student is to attend based on visits, interviews, essays, etc.
    • Filling out an information card at a college fair, making an official campus visit through the admissions office, applying Early Action, and more are playing a bigger role in determining how likely you are to attend their school.

  1. When should I go on college tours?
