This is the first in a new series that we will be posting on how Signature College Counseling’s students are working the plan on their college admission’s journey. Not only those that are in the midst of their application season but underclassmen as well.

See below for where our students are in their college admissions journey, at this point in time:

Rising seniors

+ Finalizing their draft student resume and all supporting activities

+ Completing the general portion of their Common App and Coalition Application, if applicable

+ Writing their primary essay that will eventually be submitted to all of the schools that they are applying to

+ Finalizing their college list – Scheduling the last of their college visits, using our on-line Campus Visit Checklist *

+ Ensure they have defined their financial boundaries to be sure that their list of schools fit them financially

Rising Juniors

+ Continuing their college visits to work through finding their SAFE match colleges, socially, academically, financially and emotionally (Using our on-line Campus Visit Checklist *)

+ Solidifying their SAT/ACT testing plan for the Fall

+ If not done already, looking into test prep options (group tutoring, private tutoring...etc.)

+ Continuing to compile their activities and adding to their draft student resume

+ Continuing to define their financial boundaries to be sure that they work towards a list of schools that fit them financially

Rising Sophomores

+ Working on understanding what their needs, wants and desires are for their SAFE match colleges

+ Visiting colleges that are within their boundaries and match criteria to gain a better understanding of what they want, and don’t want, in their college experience (Using our Campus Visit Checklist *)

+ Compiling their activities and beginning to draft their student resume

+ Defining their financial boundaries to be sure that they work towards a list of schools that fit them financially
