"IT's easy to find a school that meets your academic needs or that looks good on paper, but when it comes down to it, what really matters is if you can see yourself enjoying living in that place."

 

Chandler Pope

Howard University
Broadcast Journalism

"In college interviews, the representative will ask you questions to see how much of a fit you would be for their school. This can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. College interviews are an opportunity for you to learn more about that school and to make yourself memorable among the applicant pool."

 

Jacqueline Brutus

Boston University
Architectural Studies, Spanish

"Look at the school holistically, not just the name. Try not to compare your school to the schools of your classmates, because each of you are different with unique talents and goals."

 

Maggie Baum

Holy Cross University
Anthropology & French

"Key has taught me the value of speaking up both in and out of the classroom. I am able to express my thoughts, concerns, opinions, and questions without hesitation, which has helped me throughout the admissions process and will continue to serve me in college." 

 

Jilly Proshan

Georgetown University
Comparative Literature

"My most important requirement was to go to a place with interesting people. I wanted to be surrounded by people with passions who wanted to learn and explore as much as I did."
