You've created your college list and planned out a calendar of when you plan to visit each one. But here is a scenario that you might not have considered: What if you're on a college tour and you just have a feeling it isn't the right place for you? And what if this happens on more than one college tour?
Well, this shows why college tours are so important. You can research colleges all day long online or discuss them with your counselor or friends, but there is nothing like stepping your own two feet on a college campus. Once you are there, you either can imagine yourself as a student on that campus or not.
