BigFuture - Free website for students to learn about preparing for, finding & applying to colleges

BigFuture - Free website for students to learn about preparing for, finding & applying to colleges | Being College Ready | Scoop.it

Big Future is a dynamic free website that allows students to learn all about preparing for, finding, and applying to colleges. Whether a student is interested in financial aid, what colleges are a good fit for them, or exploring career opportunities that they are interested in, this is an excellent site. Through dynamic videos, interactive modules, and an appealing interface, this site is the place to visit for kids interested in preparing and applying to college. There are a wealth of resources on the site that are also great for parents and counselors.

 

My thoughts: I feel I should look at the website they are talking about. This specific article does not give me the info I actually need. It just gives me another link so I can go and find the information that I need. This article is not helpful. It does tell you what the website will have which is helpful. I need to look at financial aid, colleges that are a good fit for me and i need to explore career oportunities.

This website is a real lifesaver! When it comes to finding colleges, exploring careers, and looking into financial aid, look no further. bigfuture.collegeboard.org  makes it easy. I was able to plan my future effortlessly and i couldn't be happier.

Dominique I's curator insight, December 2, 2014 3:26 PM

when it comes down to getting ready to apply for college its all about getting prepared and being ready making sure that you have finacial aid, or at least applying for it, also making sure you have you recomendation and your personal statement ready all the things you need so when you are applying to colleges you have them already to the side ready and also make sure you have taken or planning on taking the SAT and ACT because most colleges require that which is most important.
