Halfway There!

Hello Readers! I hope your holidays were filled with love, family, and a bounty of food! I am hoping you did well on your finals and received the grade you have worked for. The school year is already halfway over! It is unbelievable how fast this year has gone by.

For you seniors, most college application deadlines are due in January so make sure you finish those up on time. It is never a good idea to turn in your application last-minute, so the sooner the better! Second and third opinions are of high value; you can ask a teacher, a parent, or older sibling to review your application essay. You want to make sure your application is perfectly polished and stands out among the others striving to get into the same university. Once you get a second or third opinion and you have finally checked over your application, you are ready to submit!

Applying to colleges is an extremely stressful but exciting process. Know that there are several people and websites that can help you make your application the best it can be. Once you turn them in, just relax and wait for your letter of acceptance. Don’t forget to keep your grades up; just because you turned your applications in doesn’t mean it’s time to slack off in school.
