February To-Do List

Writing down your to-do list will help you stay on track.

Keep this February to-do list in mind to stay on track this month.
  • Keep us informed of your admissions decisions. If you were deferred, update the college on your continued interest and new information such as test scores, leadership activities, or academic accomplishments. This video explains what to include in a letter of continued interest.
  • Avoid senioritis by keeping your grades up and avoiding disciplinary issues.
  • As you research colleges, be sure to complete the virtual information sessions and tours for any colleges you will not visit, and look for special opportunities such as student panels, and major-specific programming. You can schedule campus visits on the websites. Plan in advance for the busy school vacation weeks.
  • Keep your grades up!
  • Register and prepare for standardized tests (SAT, ACT).
All Students
  • Choose next year’s courses wisely remembering to challenge yourself appropriately but not overextending yourself.
  • Make plans for the summer—a  job, volunteer work, or an enrichment program. Let us know if you need ideas.
  • Make sure you are taking a mental health break each day and doing something enjoyable.
