We’ve finally hit August, about a month before students come back to Kent. (Shrieking won’t help you now!) College applications have opened, and, regardless to how busy you may be this summer, it’s time to launch yourself into the application process.
Your college list may still be taking form, but you can devise your application plans now. Consider the following:
- Start filling out application forms, whether that be the Common App and/or another application portal.
- Continue writing drafts of your college essays.
- Devise your standardized testing plan for the fall (if necessary).
- Begin to finalize the institutions on your college list.
- Remember to complete your summer checklist!
All of this is easier said than done, but even sitting down to plan out when and how you will do these tasks is very important. For some advice, check out the U.S. News & World Report article below.
