What college-bound high school seniors should be doing RIGHT NOW!

The college application season is in full swing, and deadlines are fast approaching. This month, high school seniors should be working toward the following goals:

  • To meet Early Decision and Early Action deadlines if you have a first-choice school. Note that the majority of these deadlines are in November and December.
  • To continue drafting college essays.
  • To follow up with your recommenders to ensure that your letters will be submitted on time.
  • To research financial aid deadlines for the schools to which you are applying, as this paperwork is sometimes due before the regular application deadline.

Good luck with your applications!
