Steps to Take:

  1. Prepare and take your SAT/ACTs. Check out the Test Dates here as these are very early in the academic year.
  2. Ask for letters o f recommendation. Your teachers and counselor (me) will need a month or so to prepare these. To be completely prepared you should probably make both your tutor and your counselor aware of this at the end of your Year 12 year.
  3. Begin writing your college essays, I would recommend working on this over the summer as well to share a first draft with your tutor in the new year.
  4. Ensure that you have left enough time in October for proofing your essays and adding your extracurriculars ready for the November deadlines.
