MOST other schools will also hold Fall Open House dates. If you don’t see the colleges you are interested in attending, contact their admissions office and/or check online for their dates and information. Remember, you are allowed 2 “free” days (with at least one week’s notice/approval) to visit the colleges of your choice (see me for the required forms). You may also want to consider the Fall Break of October 19-21 to do college visits.
