No Slacking Off Now!!
It’s been fun working with my graduating seniors for the past year. I’m so proud of clients who have committed to attend a variety of colleges, including UCLA, Cal Berkeley, University of Michigan, Cal State Channel Islands, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Clark University, Sonoma State University, CSUN, Warren Wilson College, Wellesley College, Wesleyan University, and others. Congratulations!
It’s tempting to slack off at the end of the school year. Keep in mind, though, that colleges look at all four years of high school. While SAT or ACT tests show colleges how you performed on one specific day, your grades throughout high school show colleges that you have been a strong student for all four years. Work hard and work strong through your last final exam, and then you can relax a bit over the summer (maybe a little bit of relaxing and a little bit of volunteering, or summer school, or a paying job!)
On the Road Again!
Quick Advice for 10th and 11th Graders:
Plan some college visits during the summer. You will get the best feel for a campus when you visit in person. Even if you can’t fly out of town, visit some local colleges, like Chapman University in Orange County, Whittier College, Occidental, USC or UCLA. Take the official tour, and talk to students on campus. You can read my impressions of the colleges I have toured (in California and outside of California).
