As college application season winds down for current seniors, most have sent a deposit to the school of their choice and are looking forward to a new academic chapter. And now, a new cohort of rising high school seniors are preparing to embark on their own college admissions journey. Every student’s path is different and unique, and we highlighted a diverse few in our Journey to College video series this year. Within our videos, we interviewed high school seniors throughout the year to hear how they were building their college list, figuring out how to pay for future colleges costs, and making the ultimate decision of where to attend. Our students also shared advice for others who are starting the college planning process.

Journey to College Video Series

Rising seniors can view all of our videos by creating an account in, our free college and career planning tool, where our Journey to College series is accessible from the Student Dashboard. Students will hear their peers speak to the importance of college tours, staying organized in the admissions process, searching for private scholarships, and so much more.

Once a MEFA Pathway account is created, students can also take advantage of all the useful resources within the portal that can aid them through the college admissions process. The College Search and College Compare features help students decide which colleges are a good fit, and the College Cost Calculator is a great way to guide students in making their final decision by allowing them to compare financial aid letters. The Scholarship Search generates a list of possible scholarships for students based on student-specified criteria.
