What research should they do on their own?

It is very important for students to do some basic research on their own, so they have an idea of what they would like to do and figure out their personal interests before meeting with an advisor. They should start with basic information, such as where they would like to study and what they would like to study. Students should come up with a few options they would be interested in, just in case, there are problems with their top choice. If students figure out what their interests are, such as their likes and dislikes, agents or advisors can do a better job in helping them find a good match. Furthermore, students should decide what the most important aspects of their preferred college are; what are their priorities when deciding on a perfect match? Most general information about colleges can be found online, and it would be useful for the students to take notes on their research before an official meeting. By creating a list of colleges they are interested in and researching, students can speed up the process when finalizing it and discussing it with others.
