Welcome Back

Image result for welcome back to school

I hope you all had a wonderful summer. Now, it is time to get back into thinking about free money. Let’s get those scholarships!

Please come by and see me and let me know how I can help you. If you would like to make an appointment, we can spend some time together figuring out what direction you are going for college and how to find money to help you get there.

Remember that right now one of the biggest things you can do is increase your ACT score and keep track of all your extra-curricular activities.  Build that portfolio so when it comes to apply, you are ready with all of your information.

Retake that ACT. The next ACT is September 14th and you can still register with a late fee. You can also take it on October 26th for colleges that have a December 1st deadline.

I am looking forward to meeting with you and helping you find the money you need for college.  If you need help applying for the FAFSA, (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) applying to college, applying for scholarships or testing, I am your person!

To get the most updated information you can follow here on the website, Facebook, Twitter or Remind.

School’s Out! Portfolios, Letters of Recommendation and College Visits!

Image result for schools out for summer

Since school is out and summer is here, I have a few things that you can be working on and preparing for your senior year.

  1. Work on Portfolios-whether you choose to keep a notebook or a computer file, get your stuff together! Any extracurricular activities, volunteer work, work, awards, leadership experience and any other relevant information that might be helpful for college application and scholarship applications.  Almost all scholarship applications will ask for this information, so having it ready to go will be the most helpful for you.
  2. Work on Letters of Recommendation-many of you will want letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors and administration. Since you won’t have access to these people over the summer, work on letters of recommendation from others in the community.  Or, work on compiling a list of attributes that you would like a recommender to mention in a letter. Here is a link to a document that will be helpful for you when asking for a letter of recommendation.

  3. College Visits-Get on campus! One of the very best ways to see if a school is the right one for you is to get on campus. All schools have tours that you can take, so take advantage of this and go visit the schools you are thinking about.  Remember, we will be done with your college applications by Halloween, so you want to know which schools you want to apply to.

Have a fabulous summer and get ready for an amazing senior year!
