Admission Counselor Tips

SLU counselors' best college search advice

5. Identify Your Top Colleges

“Make a list of points that are really important to you. Once you have those benchmarks, use them to help pare down your list of schools.” – Saint Louis University admission counselor Lindsey Wagner

4. Schedule a Campus Visit

“Visit the campuses of all the schools you are considering. You can’t get a good read on a college’s ‘personality’ without seeing the campus in real life.” – Saint Louis University admission counselor Eric Wilson

3. Talk to Current College Students

“Seek out current students to talk to, whether in person, by email or on the phone. They are the ones living the experience right now and they give a very true picture of what you can expect.” – Saint Louis University admission counselor Michelle Rogers.

2. Apply Yourself

“Be yourself as you apply. We want to get to know who you are as we read your application, so be honest and open.” - Saint Louis University admission counselor Michelle Rogers.

1. Find the Right College Fit

“Find a school you can call home. You want a school that will help you find not only what you want to become but also who you’ll become.” - Saint Louis University admission counselor Stephanie Szczepanski
