The big one is coming to Cleveland! The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) is hosting its huge college fair this weekend, February 10th. Over 150 colleges and their representatives will be present to speak with you. Personally, I just go for all the cool swag they give away, but I'm not applying, YOU are, so GO! This college fair will only be in the Cleveland area once this year. If you want to catch it in Ohio again in 2024, you'll have to drive down to Cincinnati. Follow this link to register, and see the colleges in attendance. It's especially important to go if you plan to apply to a school that monitors Demonstrated Interest.
Some advice when strategizing your approach at a college fair:
Whatever you do, be sure you DON'T have your parent do all the talking. The college representatives are not just there to advertise their college, they are also looking for standouts in the area. Be the person they remember, not your parent!
Good luck and have fun!
