While the junior year is when the college process begins in earnest, the importance of starting early cannot be overemphasized. The freshman or sophomore years are optimal times to develop an educational plan and explore extracurricular interests that support the student’s strengths and passions. Families with the foresight to plan ahead find that their children are more informed and prepared for college and have more choices later on. Frequent meetings are not typically necessary at this stage.
