will i get into college

In case you haven’t notice school has started and now is the time for juniors and seniors who are preparing for college to get in gear. Time management is critical now because this is the time you will be filling out so many applications, forms, essays, etc. They all have a cutoff time or deadline. It is imperative that every student who is interested in college purchase a calendar big enough to write information inside the date. Hang the calendar up so family members can see what is going on as well just in case they have to remind you of some important deadline that is looming around the corner.

This simple guide is a mean to keep you on track but please be aware the months and time listed could or has change. Chances are if you use the calendar and make good use of your time the college preparation will be smooth sailing. Managing your time during your senior year will be critical since you will have the prom, senior trips and a host of other things. If for any reason you may feel overwhelmed or stressed please inform your parents or your counselor for added help.
