As you’re settling in to your senior year of high school, don’t forget to stay focused on your college search and application process. It may seem overwhelming at times, but if you take small steps every month, it will make college planning much more manageable.
Here are some things to consider in November:
- Take standardized tests before it’s too late. By now, you should have already taken your ACT, SAT or a number of other tests required by most colleges. If you haven’t already, speak with your guidance counselor about registering for the next test date.
- Request supplemental materials for your application. While you may have already asked for teacher recommendations, start gathering other materials you might need, like a list of volunteer activities or a work history.
- Complete your college applications. If you’re applying to several schools, make it your goal to complete one application every night until you’re finished. Work through the application slowly to ensure accuracy.
Navigating through your college search can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. At Sullivan University, we have experience working with students who are trying to figure out their next step. Working through this checklist now will help you survive your college search!
