College Admissions Checklist
The excitement a high school student gets when looking and applying to university isn’t topped by anything but receiving that acceptance letter from the university of their dreams. But first, a decision on where to study and what to study needs to be made along with a host of tasks that need to be done. In this article, Studygram will provide a checklist of tasks that need to be completed when applying to university.
List majors you’re interested in studying
A high school student should have a general idea of what field of study to pursue or at least a specific course or major. Having identified your passions, interests and your own abilities should make your choice a lot easier. For example, if you’re into technologies and computers and you have strong abilities in that field, you should be leaning towards choosing majors like computer science and engineering or robotics and mechatronics. Consider double majoring and taking on a minor as it will expand your future options after graduating university. Finding what you’re passionate about and what you are good at will make your life journey all the more exciting and pleasant.
