April College Checklist for High School Juniors

In just a few weeks, you’ll finish your junior year of high school – what a great feeling! You’re probably starting to feel excited about the power of being a senior!

A big part of your senior year will be dedicated to your college search and application process. You may have been procrastinating, but there are things you should be doing now to make the process easier. Things like:

  • Resisting distractions. With summer vacation almost here, you’re probably finding it hard to concentrate in school. But remember – all your final papers and test scores will impact your college applications, so stay focused!
  • Asking for references. Consider the classes you really shined in this year. It’s a good time to contact those teachers and ask for letters that summarize your strong performance.
  • Starting your college essay. This part of the application stresses students out the most – which is why you should start brainstorming ideas for potential topics.

Don’t wait to be proactive. At Sullivan University, we offer programs and camps targeted to juniors because we understand the importance of getting a jump-start on your college education. Start the process now.
