Tips for Seniors for September

Finalize your list of colleges. Be sure you have some ‘safe schools’ as well as ‘probable’ and ‘reach’ colleges. Review the applications and put together a timeline and list of items needed to apply.
Keep in mind that November is usually application deadline for early decision and early action. Early decision is binding, early application is not.
Begin working on college essays.
Look for scholarships that you can apply for and start those essays.
Think about the teachers you want to ask for a Letter of Reference if you haven’t already done so.
Meet with your college counselor. Call 630-907-9830 to schedule your appointment and to find out how Lighthouse Counselors can help you prepare for college.
