Happy New Year Seniors!

Amy Jasper Monday, January 14, 2013

Right now there are two kinds of college bound seniors. One has already been accepted into the school of their choice and has decided to attend. The other is still applying to colleges. Both are perfectly fine positions to be in but require different plans of action. The following steps in these winter months will keep you on track for a happy spring.

 Seniors Who Can Kiss the Admissions Process Goodbye:

  • Congratulate yourself on a job well done!
  • Say Thank You – Remember you did not get to this point on your own. Thank those who supported you in this process, wrote letters, proofread, paid for application fees, took you on college visits, etc.
  • Apply for Financial Aid - Complete the FAFSA and the CSS Profile.
  • If you were admitted under binding ED, be sure to withdraw your applications from other schools.                                                  

 Seniors in the Homestretch of the Process:

  • Be sure to adhere to deadlines, as many are January 15th or February 1st.
  • Don’t let your energy fade. Put as much into these last applications as you did others.
  • Give your college list a final review. Think of admission decision worse case scenarios and be certain you have choices you can be happy with.
  • Apply for Financial Aid - Complete the FAFSA and the CSS Profile.
  • Be patient... it's a virtue.
