June 23, 2016
The summer before your senior year of high school is an imperative time to accomplish tasks so that you’re prepared for the year ahead.
In fact, it’s a great time to gain a head start so that once the school year comes, you won’t be overwhelmed with the college applications process.
In order to ensure you’re on the right track, here’s a list of what you should be focused on during the month of July:
2. Test Prep
Final test prep – your last call for testing if you want to apply early action/early decision is sometimes between September (if taking the ACT) or October (if taking the SAT). Study now so that you can finish up and have as many admissions options as possible available.
8. Work on Your College Search
Keep working on your college search by researching colleges to add to your potential colleges list.
10. Social Media
Clean up your social media account and profiles – you never know when college admissions officers may look at them!
