Tips for students in February
By the time February rolls around, you’re most likely in the swing of your second half of the year. While your first priority should always be to stay on top of your schoolwork, February is also a great time to start considering what you’ll do over the summer.
Whether it’s a summer program, an internship, or a job, the earlier you start looking, the better off you’ll be! If you are going to apply to something that requires a letter of recommendation, it’s a good idea to ask for those early as well to give your teachers as much time as possible to write it.
High school juniors should also be sure to make a study plan for the ACT and/or SAT. Our guide on how to find a tutor, as well as our free study resources, can help!
