Lee Binz explains gives some expert strategies on how to pick a college that will love your student almost as much as you do in her article Visit Colleges in the Spring

Spring is the time to visit colleges. Arranging college visits during spring of junior year is an important step toward getting into a perfect-fit college. Your family needs to really get to know the college. Colleges can look very similar on paper, with brochures full of sunny days and beautiful fall leaves. Even when pictures and statistics look the same, you really don’t know what a college is like until you visit. The college really needs to get to know your student. What colleges really want is "demonstrated interest." Learn how to demonstrate interest and get 6 important tips for your college visit. Evaluating colleges carefully can make the transition from homeschooled senior to independent college freshman much easier.

It’s an investment of time, money, and energy to visit colleges. Think of each visit as an investment in your college fund. Hopefully, these interactions will pay off in the long run, with wonderful admission offers and great scholarships.
