Are you a senior looking at four year colleges for after high school?
If you don't know when your deadlines are, haven't given your guidance counselor a brag sheet, or in general don't know what your plans are... you need an appointment - STAT... or ASAP... or whatever acronym will get you down to our offices the quickest.
You limit your options when you miss deadlines, so please make sure you are keeping track.
Deadlines also apply to financial aid applications, scholarships, etc. Don't miss out on something because you miss a deadline, keep a calendar, or put them in your blackberry, I don't care how you do it, really... just do it!
February vacation could be a good time to visit colleges, along with the upcoming long weekend for MLK Jr. Day. Plan some visits, schedule tours, see some places you plan to apply or some to which you've already applied.
Check out the "helpful links" page on the Counseling Services website for additional resources. Also, don't forget about the "Scholarship Scoop" page for scholarships we get wind of here at school. It's all worth your time.
