The College Explorer: Magellan’s June, 2017 Newsletter


Class of 2018 – Use Your Summer Wisely!

In this post, you’ll learn the two things your rising high school senior – Class of 2018 – should be doing this summer to make college applications this fall much, much simpler.  And in this post, we talk about how important it is to have a BALANCED college list – what that means, and why.

Summer Workshops for Rising Seniors!

Magellan will host college essay brainstorming, essay development and application workshops throughout the summer.  All of the information and RSVP here.

School Profiles

Colleges evaluate students in the context of what is available to them at their school.  Your child’s high school counselor will send a document called the School Profile with his/her transcript.  Learn more about School Profiles in this post.
