There are two kinds of college visits- productive and unproductive.
Let's get right to the point here. Most college visits consist of a drive around campus along with a guided tour. By itself, that's unproductive, but very normal.
Let's define "Productive"- achieving significant results or producing significant amounts.
"Significant" being the operative word. Driving around a campus and taking a guided tour might be a nice visit, but it's hardly significant.
Significant results come from having meetings with the college decision-makers, specifically in the admissions office and financial aid office. It also includes a meeting with the student's department of anticipated study. And for athletes, it includes meeting with the college team's coaches.
We have 10-15 questions to ask in each of these offices. Their responses to your questions will produce significant results! On a college visit, you have the opportunity to learn how they conduct their business. Learning how they do business is productive. It will improve admission acceptances, save college costs, and help in achieving desired college outcomes. Now that's productive!
