March College Checklist for Seniors

From The Choice….”This is the month you’ve been waiting for. Most admission decisions will be released by the end of March, leaving all of April for you to make your choice. Take a few deep breaths and contemplate what it will be like to receive your decision notices. Make a plan for how, when and where you want to get and share the news, and think about how you will evaluate your offers.”

I would also add: THANK those who supported you along the way, especially your guidance counselor, private counselor, parents, family members and recommendation writers. In most cases (especially those recommendation writers!) you couldn’t have done it without them. A simple sign of gratitude goes a long way.

I would also add that if you have not done so already, now is the time to solidify your summer plans. Many formal programs (academic and otherwise) are still accepting applications, so if this is on your radar act now. Otherwise, begin thinking about internship opportunities, taking classes in your field of interest, working or volunteering. If you wait until May or June, many opportunities will be long gone.
