November = College Admissions Deadlines!
October is always a hectic month in the admissions world. If your child is a 9th, 10th or 11th grader – be forewarned! The UC and Cal State applications opened October 1, and the Early Action and Early Decision deadline for many colleges is November 1. It’s October when many students come to realize that LOOKING at colleges is fun, and APPLYING to colleges, less so.
I made October even busier with a four day trip to Denver for a national admissions convention, plus a three day college tour with 48 students to Northern California at the end of the month! I’ve updated the college visits pages on my website, with photos and impressions of the University of Denver,Colorado State University, Colorado College and the University of Northern Colorado, as well as UC Merced, San Jose State University and the University of the Pacific. [My NorCal trip also included four colleges I’d already visited, so I’ve updated those as well – UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Santa Clara and Stanford.]
November brings more deadlines! Some Early Action and Early Decision applications are due November 15 (there are some due in December or later). UC and Cal State applications are due November 30th – and don’t wait until November 30th to hit the “submit” button! Get those applications done early, before Thanksgiving, when there is less chance of a problem arising.
