Congratulations Seniors! After months spent assessing personal strengths, visiting colleges, identifying the right fit, interviewing, writing essays, securing recommendations and completing applications, you are now ready to push the submit button. Feel great about the fact that you have given the college search process your best shot at finding schools that will allow you to succeed academically and socially. Once applications are submitted (don’t forget to keep a hard copy!), be sure to follow up with colleges to confirm receipt of all required materials. College decisions will arrive at different times, depending on your admissions option choice. Regardless of the timing, keep on top of your senior coursework and don’t be shy about letting admissions offices know about any accomplishments achieved after applications have been sent. Remind admissions officers about your enthusiasm and capabilities.
