College/University Questions

Posted by Tanya Deats at 10/23/2009 9:15:00 AM

Attention Juniors and Seniors:

This document was designed in order to guide you in choosing the post-secondary school you decide to attend. It contains questions that you may ask a representative from the school and then, in the space provided, write the answer. Remember, these are only a few questions to ask but they are usually the most common or most pertinent in deciding upon a college/university. Feel free to ask the representative any questions you may have. Representatives will be impressed by your interest in the school and your maturity in being concerned about your future education.

Keep in mind when you visit a school/university: IF YOU WERE TO ATTEND THEIR SCHOOL, YOU WOULD BE THE CONSUMER. ASK QUESTIONS TO KNOW IF THE PRODUCT (their school/education program) IS BEST/RIGHT FOR YOU.
