Seniors who still need to check in with Ms. Darrow or Dr. Reubensaal about your college application, enlistment, or employment future plans, please do so soon! The Guidance Office would like to have students submit all college applications by October 13, 2021 so all materials may be processed by your counselor, and you have time to check with the colleges to make sure everything has arrived by November 1. Some colleges may have earlier deadlines than November 1st, so check the websites of all the schools to which you plan to apply and put reminders in your phone ahead of the deadlines so you don't miss one. Sixty per cent of all students admitted to colleges last year applied by November 1.
If you need input on your college essay, I’m available to provide insights and share samples, as well as look over brag sheets or other areas.
My college meetings for juniors will be starting in October. The first session will cover college lists by majors, score mid-ranges, brag sheets & resumes, monthly “to-do” lists, and more. A second junior session will be in the spring. Sessions will be held in my office during Lunch & Learn and the dates will be announced. Students: please check your email for these dates!
If your student has not already done so, please remind them to fill out the Google Form that was sent out to identified students in the first few weeks of school. Here, they may select areas about which they would like to receive more information. They may find the link to the form on my Blackboard page.
