Our objective is to guide the family in finding options where the student will not only get admitted, but thrive and find success once on campus.

March To-Dos

Keep a to-do list to stay on track this spring.

Keep these March to-dos in mind to keep on track leading into Spring.


  • Write thank you notes to the teachers and counselors who wrote recommendations on your behalf, informing them of your college decisions.
  • As your college decisions come in, make plans to attend accepted student events or online sessions to help you make a decision on where to matriculate.
  • Talk with current students to truly understand the campus culture.
  • If you are considering a gap year, make creating a plan a priority this month, and, if applying to a program, begin to submit applications.
  • Continue researching the colleges on your list and make plans for campus visits this spring.
  • Be sure to add yourself to the mailing list on the college website for your colleges of interest. (You will automatically be added if you register for an admission event).
  • Work with your consultant to create a list of activities with descriptions that you will later use to complete your application.
  • Discuss with your consultants which two teachers you will ask to write college recommendations.
  • If you plan to work with a college consultant now is the time to interview and choose one.
  • Develop a standardized testing plan for the coming year and if you are a student with a disability and need testing accommodations, request them now. Be sure you have the appropriate documentation.
All Students
  • Finalize summer plans.
  • Discuss your course choices for next year with us. Challenge yourself appropriately while allowing time for activities, social life, family time, and sleep!
