HS College Planning Tips: for week of Aug 9


Write and Edit Your College Essays

You need to start your college essays while you have free time in the summer. Remember that the essay is an important part of the application review. A good essay can become the decision factor that gets you accepted. So do a great job.

The college admission also requires 1-2 recommendations from teachers and/or community leaders.

Give the person writing your recommendation 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.
