Pathways to College

Ready, Set , Go! for Seniors

September 11, 2017
By Lore Fariss
The season for application to college is here and seniors are beginning to feel the crunch of the additional "assignments' needed before they can submit their applications. Parents are anxious too and wondering how much to push their student while allowing them to take ownership of the journey. I plan to meet with each senior and their parents before the end of September and outline a path for them to complete the applications for their chosen schools. 
 
Here are some important tasks that each senior will need to complete: 
  • Setup an individual meeting with Lore Fariss to discuss next steps and develop your plan. 

  • Update prospective schools and schools you are applying to in Naviance.

  • Check deadlines for the schools you want to apply to and discern types of application you will submit - Early Decision, Early Action, Regular Decision, etc. 

  • Begin the Common Application if any or all of your schools accept this format - the Common Application can be submitted along with any supplements required from the individual schools. 

  • Request recommendation letters from teachers and let your college counselor know so that they will receive a link to Naviance.

  • Consult with your writing mentor to discuss your personal essay/statement and review your plans. 

  • Register for the SAT or ACT if you haven't taken or want to improve your scores.

  • Present completed application materials to Lore to be proofed and reviewd BEFORE submitting online.

  • Remember - I am here to support you and your parents as well as to guide you through the steps to a succesful college application journey. Don't be afraid to ask me anything - no question is too small. Together we will find the "right fit" college for you!
