The key to a smooth, efficient, and sane college application journey begins Junior Spring...
Yes, a whole semester before you actually apply!
Junior spring is for:
Making a preliminary college list
Preparing a standout resume and Activity Sheet
Reviewing your course list and senior year classes
Strategizing on who to ask for recommendations
Planning your Common App essay
I begin by reviewing all four years of a student's high school experience, including grades, course selection, extracurricular activities, and summer enrichment (jobs, internships, experiences, etc.).
From there, we begin to craft a clear educational narrative and a compelling roadmap for senior year.
To reduce stress and to guarantee the easiest workload for senior year (a strong performance is essential) applications should IDEALLY be completed over the summer.
It’s vital to start the college process as early as possible. ⭐
