  • Make a list of schools in which you have an interest
  • Read about the schools in print and online resources
  • Visit the schools if you are able to do so
  • Talk to students and graduates of a variety of schools
  • Keep notes on your observations and questions
  • Check to see which standardized tests you need to take for the schools in which you are interested
  • Schedule and take them (especially if you plan to apply early) in late spring or early fall
  • Create a resume/activities sheet
  •  Think about your academic interests and possible majors
  • Be sure to keep up with your activities
