Class of 2022 College Application Process/tips!

The Compass Education Group developed a list of frequently asked questions for 11th grade students starting the college application process. The WLHS Counseling Team also has some thoughts we would like you to take into consideration:

  • Colleges have always prioritized a holistic review; GPA and test scores are not the only factors.
  • Many colleges are going test optional.
  • Develop your passions. Colleges want to know that you have a passion and can persevere. How have you been keeping up with your passions during COVID-19?
  • Take a look at college admissions pages for updates on COVID-19
  • Be analytical about how colleges have responded to COVID-19. Have they supported their students?
  • Join university listservs to get the most up to date information from the colleges you are interested in.
  • Take virtual tours
  • Reach out to admissions officers. They want to hear from you and have the most accurate information
  • Log in to Naviance
  • Participate in hybrid and/or distance learning. Many of your current teachers will write your recommendations next year. They will speak directly to your participation during hybrid/distance learning.
