Important Info while researching [Look at research instruction sheet and sample research papers] 

*Research should ONLY be from the School's official website not google search, not wikipedia, etc. ; also can call school's admissions officers for assistance; Label A-Q when turning in rough drafts!!!

B&C- Get the school's set requirement not the median score [if the school does holistic approach (you would know this after calling them) then you can put median ACT and GPA requirements]

E-Should have 10 majors not names of degrees like Bachelors of arts in math; 5 of the majors should have possible careers and the remaining 5 should have  a BRIEF overview of each like [zoology-study of animals]

F-Should have 5 different places on campus to live researched with the cost per semester [semester costs is given to you usually it's up to you to multiply the semester cost by 2 to get the year cost]; if school doesn't have 5 total places [dorms/apartments on campus] you MUST research apartments off campus in the area-rent multiplied by 5 equals the semester costs; rent multiplied by 10 equals the year costs

G-semester costs are usually given [multiply semester by 2 to get the year cost

H- this is JUST TUITION ONLY! multiply semester by 2 to get year costs; multiply the year costs by 4 to get per 4 years amount or multiply year cost by 2 to get per 2 years amount [If it is a community college it is a 2 year university; if not you will do per 4 years] If the school is out of the state of TN you MUST RESEARCH OUT OF STATE TUITION!

I-Should have 5 scholarships that you can apply for [ALL TN schools should have TN HOPE LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIP; TN PROMISE SHOULD NOT BE USED]; 3 LOANS should be Federal subsidized, Federal unsubsidized, and Federal parents/perkins plus [You MUST research  requirements and amounts; this is used for ALL schools]; 2 grants- one of the 2 for ALL schools should be Federal Pell grant]

J-JUST PUT THE RATIO

L-YES OR NO AND IF NO WHAT'S THE STIPULATION [KEEP SHORT]

M-NO OR YES

N-ALL schools will be yes and you must list 3 places to work on campus!

O-SHOULD HAVE 4 MASTERS DEGREES and 3 pre professional programs; Community colleges you will write the following statement- There are no graduate programs offered here.
