Three Myths about Big Colleges

A lot of high school students applying for college want to rule out big colleges without really knowing them. Here are three big college myths to help you make a more informed decision when applying to college from Alexis Avila CEO of Prepped & Polished.

Three Myths about Big Colleges

Myth 1. Big Colleges don’t have small class sizes. Truth is, you can find all types of class sizes at big colleges. Class size really depends on what you’re majoring in and what year you’re in.
Myth 2. Big Colleges have an out of control party scene. Truth is, you’ll also find a lot of activities to do that are non-party related. It’s a big school and there is something for everyone!
Myth 3. You won’t meet anyone at a big College. Truth is, because there are so many students on campus you will find a wide diversity of students there. So it’s easy to find people you share things in common with because there are so many interested students coming to that school!

“Alexis was instrumental in preparing my daughter for SAT, ACT exams. We re-engaged Alexis a second time to analyze results and seek additional improvement for top flight colleges, and we were also successful in achieving this result. My daughter is now performing well in a pre-pharma track at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.”

“We hired Alexis to tutor our daughter for the SAT’s and ACT’s. After his first meeting with her he suggested that we focus all of our tutoring on the ACT’s since he felt she had a better chance of doing well on that test. He was very flexible with his schedule, and gave her valuable practice tests and homework to do in between meetings. She took the ACT’s once and scored much higher than expected for a student with her G.P.A. What a relief! Now our daughter can look at more challenging schools because of her scores! Alexis was a very good value, since he spent much less time than we expected teaching her to do well on her test.”
