High school juniors
- If you have not secured your letters of recommendation, you should before the end of the school year! Here are some tips to receive the best possible recommendation letters.
- College admissions is all about balancing risk. Scattergrams are one of the best ways to assess your chances. Use a scattergram through Naviance or Cappex to estimate your chances!
- If you are thinking about applying for need-based financial aid, you can use the Net Price Calculator to estimate your need-based financial package! We recommend that you do this for every college on your list!
- If you are interested in earning college credit to bolster your college application and potentially graduate college early, try self-studying for AP Exams. With this method, you can earn college credit without taking the classes’ corresponding course in high school. Summer is a great time to begin this process.
