Plan For College

The Googler's Guide to Year-Round College Planning

Many of our readers find us through Google. Because of that, it's easy to see what people are searching at different times of the year. What we've found (rather, what has been confirmed by Google) is that college planning is a year-round process. This week, instead of us talking about what to do to plan for college, we're going to let everyone who uses Google give some advice.

Google Trends is a tool that shows how search volumes change throughout the year for specific search phrases. Below, you'll see graphs for each month of the year and a search term associated with it. For example, since it's October, search traffic for "common app" starts to spike. On the other hand, May rolls around and "SAT prep" spikes. For you (the high school student or parent of a college-bound child), use this as a guide to know what other families are thinking at different times of the year.

However, take it with a grain of salt. Many of these trends are a bit behind where they should be (Think: searching SAT prep one week before the test). Also keep in mind that people may be searching retroactively (See: December and early admission/action). However, it is interesting to see trends throughout the year.

Here is the guide to college planning based on Google search results:


January: "College interview questions"
___
February: "FAFSA"

___
March: "College acceptance letters"

___
April/May: "AP practice test"

___
May: "SAT prep"


___
May/June: "Summer jobs for high school students"

___
July: "College tours"

___
August: "What to pack for college" / "packing for college" / "college packing list"

___
September: "SAT dates"

___
October/November: "Common app"

___
December: "Early admissions" / "Early action"
___
