  1. Start Early!!
  2. Visit Schools – even if you think your parents are annoying on campus tours.
  3. Buckle Down – grades matter (every year and throughout senior year!)
  4. Write Your Own Essay – don’t tell the college what you think they want to hear. Be yourself; tell your story.
  5. Prepare for your Standardized Tests – every little bit helps so get comfortable with sitting for four hours straight!
  6. Get to Know your Teachers and Counselor – the better they know and understand you, the better your letters of recommendation will capture the essence of you!
  7. Get Involved – find activities you love doing and become an active participant and leader. Colleges want students who will make an impact on campus.
  8. Create a Well-Balanced College List – just because you think you have a chance of getting into a school doesn’t mean it’s the right place for you.  Remember, college is more than just academics!
  9. Use Naviance – it’s an awesome tool to understand acceptance statistics at a college, keep track of your college list, and research colleges.
  10. Talk about other things with your friends and family aside from college – it will help with stress management!
