What to do while waiting for college admission decisions
Here are three things you can do with your child while you wait for decision letters:
1. Complete any remaining college application action items. Check that there are no remaining follow-up items, like scheduling college interviews (here are some interview tips), or sending first semester transcripts to colleges.
2. Apply for more scholarships. January and February are “peak scholarship season,” meaning the most number of scholarships are added (and have deadlines) around this time of year. Check out the thousands of scholarships available on Going Merry.
3. Avoid senioritis. It can be tempting for high school seniors to slack off on their academics once college applications are submitted. College acceptance offers can be rescinded at some (not all) colleges, so don't let them slack off too much.
Easy way to apply for FAFSA
In 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature established the new requirement (House Bill 3) that Texas students must file a financial aid application (or formally opt out) to graduate.
Our school has partnered with Going Merry to offer you an easier way to navigate the FAFSA. Going Merry is a step-by-step tool that helps you fill out the FAFSA (correctly and easily), in less than an hour.
