student writing

Stay organized this winter with to-do lists that help you plan for your college future.

  • Finish your supplemental essays and submit all applications (as well as scholarship applications) prior to the December vacation.
  • Confirm that the colleges to which you have applied received all your application materials, including transcripts and recommendations.
  • Write thank you notes to the teachers and counselors who wrote recommendations for you. Be sure to tell them of acceptances as you receive them.
  • If you are admitted early decision, withdraw any other submitted applications following the instructions of the college.
  • Register and prepare for the ACT or SAT.
  • Research the colleges on your list and start thinking about which you will visit and when. If you are unable to visit due to Covid-19, consider reaching out to the college online and doing a virtual tour. 
  • Begin writing a resume of your activities and start to think about which junior year teachers might write a strong letter of recommendation for you. We will discuss this in January.
