Colleges and Universities Still Accepting Applications for 2014-2015

College_application2If you are a senior, but have not yet decided where you will be attending college in the fall, you may be feeling a bit panicky at this point of the year.  It could be that you’ve opted to attend your local community college because you weren’t able to make a decision on a four-year school by May 1st. (And who can blame you?  This is a pretty tough decision!) Now that Decision Day has come and gone, you and your parents may feel that community college is your only option for next year.

Great news – there is a lengthy list of four-year colleges and universities that are still accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year! If you have your heart set on attending a four-year school, it isn’t too late.

Why might you choose to attend a four-year school over a two-year school? I advise my students to attend a four-year college directly after high school under two conditions:

1. If you have been accepted to a four-year school
2. If you can afford the four-year school

With this advice in mind, some of the four-year colleges and universities still accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year include the following (see below for a link to the full list):
