  • Preparing for your Senior Year:

    Here are 4 things students can and should be doing now and over the summer:

    1. Start exploring the Wilson College and Career Counseling Site (https://sites.google.com/rcsd121.org/wilson-collegecareer-counselin/home).  There is a ton of information and resources on here to help you understand the college application process and get a head start.  The more you do now, the less stressed you'll be next fall.

     

    1. Build, grow or shrink your college list. By summer’s end you will want to have a finalized college list. Getting there will depend on where you’re at in the process and how much time and energy you’ve invested to date. Some of you have already visited some schools and many of you haven’t yet started. Dedicate the necessary time to creating a balanced list with reach, target and safety schools. Spend time researching your schools by checking out: The academic fit – do they have majors that match your interests? The social fit – do you like the city/college town, the surrounding area, i.e., is there enough to do? The financial fit – are you likely to receive need-based or merit-based money? Then focus your summer campus visits on your target and reach schools. The rationale for holding off on visiting your safety schools is that you can check them out next spring if you aren’t accepted at any of your target or reach schools.

     

    1. Prepare your brag sheet or activities resume. Most every college application will require you to list your extracurricular activities, community service commitments, leadership roles, etc. Take the time to work on your own personal document. A neat, concise, well-organized brag sheet helps you communicate to a college that you are a serious applicant. It is a great way for you to share the variety of things you’ve done, contributions you’ve made to your high school and/or local community and a wonderful jumping off point for potential college essays. You can also give your brag sheet to your high school counselor and recommenders to help them prepare a more meaningful recommendation for you. If you have the chance to interview at a college or the opportunity to meet a college representative, having your brag sheet handy is a great idea.  The Wilson Brag sheet is linked in the Junior Google Classroom.

     

    1. Start getting prepared for completing your college applications.  Create an email account that is solely for college applications, financial aid, and scholarships.  This will allow you to be more organized and stay on top of important communication from colleges.  It is also highly recommended that you create a google doc that keeps track of your user names and passwords along with each college’s application deadline.

     

    As always, if you have questions or want to talk about getting started on the college application process, please email your counselor to make an appointment!
