Seniors and College Visits

We are well on our way to completing the Common Application for many students college choices. I need to see essays. I need to see college lists. All students applying Early Decision (all applications materials due November 1st) must have a conversation with me about the contractual obligations of that application status. Families, feel free to contact me as well.

Colleges visiting us include: NYU, Eckerd College, Towson University, Elon University., Hampshire College, University of Central Florida, Bard College, and VCU.

I will be visiting: UPenn, Cornell College, Sewanee, University of Tampa, Landmark College and Quest University Canada.

Please let me know if you'd like me to reach out to a particular school. Connections are crucial.

Seniors should be working on their applications EVERY weekend!
