Gather information. Pick up brochures and other materials about the schools that interest you. Ask admission reps to scan your barcode—an easy way to help colleges follow up with you after the fair.

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
When it comes to improving scores, a little practice goes a long way. A study of 250,000 students from the class of 2017 showed that Official SAT Practice can help any student improve their scores—regardless of gender, race, income, or high school GPA. In fact, 20 hours on Khan Academy was associated with an average 115-point increase from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT.
Go to satpractice.org to share your scores and get a personalized SAT study plan based on your results from the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, PSAT 8/9, or SAT.
Paul Smith's College
When it comes to cookie-cutter colleges, Paul Smith’s is anything but. In fact, they're the only 4-year college inside the boundaries of the world-famous “forever wild” Adirondacks.
Students at Paul Smith’s College experience a hands-on education that combines proven career training with a meaningful exploration of self, society and the earth:
- if you’re a forestry major, you’ll play a role in the sustainable management of the college’s 14,000-acre property
- if you’re a fisheries and wildlife science major, you will learn to tag and track different species
- if you’re an entrepreneurial business studies major, you will write a working business plan for a local operation
Stop by the CCRC on April 4th at 10AM and learn all about Paul Smith's offerings!
