Month-by-Month Calendar of College Counseling Activities:
■ Try to finalize your college choices.
■ Prepare Early Decision, Early Action, or rolling admissions applications as soon as possible.
■ Ask for counselor or teacher recommendations if you need them. Give each teacher or counselor an outline of your academic record and your extracurricular activities. For each recommendation, provide a stamped, addressed envelope, and any college forms required.
■ If you’re submitting essays, write first drafts and ask teachers and others to read them. If you’re applying for Early Decision, finish the essays for that application now.
■ If you have not had your test scores sent to the college to which you are applying, be sure to contact the College Board or ACT to have them sent.
■ November 1−15: For Early Decision admissions, colleges may require test scores and applications between these dates.
■ Complete at least one college application by Thanksgiving.
■ Counselors send transcripts to colleges. Give counselors the proper forms at least two weeks before colleges require them.
■ As you finish and send your applications and essays, be sure to keep copies.
■ If your college wants to see seventh-semester grades, be sure you give the form to your counselor.
■ If you apply to colleges online, be sure to have your high school send a transcript—it goes to colleges separately, and by mail.
■ No senioritis, please! Accepting colleges do look at second-semester senior grades.
■ Keep active in school. If you are wait-listed, the college will want to know what you have accomplished between the time you applied and learned of its decision.
■ You should receive acceptance letters and financial aid offers by mid-April. If you’ve not done so yet, visit your final college before accepting. As soon as you decide, notify your counselor of your choice.
■ If you have questions about housing offers, talk to your counselor or call the college.
■ May 1: Colleges cannot require a deposit or commitment to attend before May 1. By that postmarked date, you must inform every college of your acceptance or rejection of the offer of admission and/or financial aid. (Questions? Talk to your counselor.)
■ Send your deposit to one college only.
■ Wait-listed by a college? If you will enroll if accepted, tell the admissions director your intent and ask how to strengthen your application. Need financial aid? Ask whether funds will be available if you’re accepted.
■ Work with a counselor to resolve any admissions or financial aid problems.
■ Ask your high school to send a final transcript to your college.
