Summer is upon us! You know what that means? Time to think about THE COLLEGE PROCESS!
For Rising Seniors, this means making a list (of potential colleges) and checking it twice.
Early Action/Early Decision deadlines come up quickly. Some are as early October 15. Most are November 1.
Time to take stock of Extra Curricular and Summer Activities. Make sure you’re enrolled for the correct classes for the fall. Prepare yourselves for upcoming Interviews.
Prepare for what is probably the final sitting of the ACT’s, SAT’s and/or SAT II Subject Tests.
And most importantly, it’s crucial to get a jump start on the COLLEGE ESSAYS!
In fact, summer is the time to complete the Common App and make significant headway on the Supplements. One the school year once again gets underway, it’s very difficult to keep all the balls in the air.
Summer before junior year is a great time to come in for an INITIAL CONSULTATION. In this session, we will plot the course of action that lies ahead. Time to plan, organize, strategize and get all your ducks in a row.
It is crucial to start early. I often meet with 9th and 10th graders, at least once, to orient them and help them build a solid foundation for the College Process.
Wherever you are, that’s where we start. And there is no time like the present!
