College Application Season In Full Swing!

Rising seniors – (most of) your college applications are open! The Common Application, the Coalition Application, the UC Application and the CSU Applications are all open. You may submit CSU applications at this point; the UC application window is November 1-30 (but you can fill it out and have it ready to submit!!).

We recently posted two very informative articles on our website:

  • This post walks you step-by-step through each section of the Common App – with instructional videos!
  • This post has information about some of the technical aspects of college apps – teacher recommendations, transcripts, test scores and more.

Magellan will host one final college application group workshop for high school seniors in the Los Angeles area on Sunday, October 16th more info and please RSVP on this page.

Parents’ Corner

Juniors – Start your search now!

Don’t forget that the college search and application process has two phases: the SEARCH comes before the APPLICATIONS! And before we start looking at colleges, we have to think about and prioritize what we are looking for in a college. This takes time! If you start now, you’ll be ahead of the game this time next year. Get in touch with us for more information!
