During #CollegeChat, Queijo (http://twitter.com/#!/collegevisit) will discuss with attendees:

  • When should high school students ideally begin their college visits
  • When is the best time to visit a college
  • Where can parents find the best deals on travel for college visits
  • How do you go beyond the official college tour
  • What is the 2-2-2 rule and why is it important
  • Are overnight visits on campus just for accepted students and how do you arrange
  • If the school you want to visit is too expensive to travel to what other options do you have to “visit”
  • How much credibility should you give the “official college led tour”
