Expert College Planning Tips 12th Grade
We would like to discuss a few actions that will lessen the stresses for the new year ahead. We have assembled key tasks to remember in keeping you on the right path.
1. Do not send in any test scores unless they are specifically requested by the school's administration.
2. Research the admissions requirements on the school's website, and if you feel confident that your scores reflect highly in your favor for the selection of admissions or scholarship merit opportunities then submit them.
3. We are aware that some students do not test well and that your score does not reflect your commitment or attributes. In this scenario, it may be best not to send in your scores and astound the school in other
Read the requirements carefully or contact your counselor to ensure that you send in your very best testing marks. The second vital process is to finalize your Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure that all signatures have been electronically or manually signed and forwarded to the FAFSA office before the set deadlines..
Expert College Planning Tips 11th Grade
Juniors should have obtained or be focused on what they want in a school and major. Take the time out to seriously focus on this, so that you can be matched with your best-fit college. This is a great time to take a trip to in-state college campuses or utilize virtual tours online.
Search the individual campuses for events that you may attend to get a better feel of the environment. This is also a good stage to schedule your SAT/ACT for the Spring. Doing so at this interval provides you the ability to take multiple practice tests, set a schedule to improve upon your more challenging sections, and also retake the actual exams if required. Utilize your PSAT scores as a starting point to prepare for the next level of exams as well as gauge where you stand in college acceptance metrics.
