College Recommendations:

Most college admissions require 1-2 recommendations from teachers and/or community leaders. Select who should write your recommendation. Give the person plenty of time (about 3-4 weeks prior to your deadline).

Also provide them a short autobiography, a list of your outside activities, school transcript and a self-addressed envelope as instructed by your college. Please note that the teacher works with hundreds of students. So give them plenty of time.

 

School Transcripts:

Double check your transcripts when you start your senior year. You will need to forward these transcripts to colleges for admission review. Make sure you have the following:

  • all grades are posted correctly
  • all required courses for graduation are listed
  • all required courses for college admittance are listed

    It is important that these transcripts are correct and up-to-date. If not, meet with school administration to repair any errors.

 

Extracurricular’s:

Take a swim, tennis, karate or other class over the fall semester (either with your school or community group). You want to show well-roundness in your application. Just the right amount of studies (with good grades) and outside activities.

Don’t think that a lot of extracurricular activities are a must. You just need to show a balance.
