College Planning

Below you will find a link to several forms to help guide you through your college search and college application process.  The first form is a College Search and Application Process informational handout.  This will provide you with an overall picture of how the process should go, and who you could seek information from.  The second form is a College Comparison Worksheet. You can print this worksheet out and use it as you begin your college visit process.  It will help you as you begin to look at different schools and need help comparing and contrasting them.  Finally there is a Resume Template.  We will use this during your Senior year to help you write your college application essays as well as to help anyone you ask to write a letter of recommendation letter for you.    If you have any questions about these documents, or regarding your college search, see Mrs. Clark.

Membership is open to colleges and universities that promote access by evaluating students using a holistic selection process.  Some of the colleges and universities Otsego High School students have applied to through The Common Application include: The Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, Miami University of Ohio, The University of Findlay and The University of Dayton.  Below you will find a link to The Common Application as well as a link to a document that will assist you in completing it.  If you have any questions regarding The Common Application, see Mrs. Clark.
