ng Test College Exploration It begins now! Colleges are on site tonight to answer your questions. But it doesnt stop there. We recommend getting as much information online as you can. Once you narrow your choices down to two or three colleges, schedule campus

tours. Call or e-mail admissions offices, they are there to help you get through the application process. Letters of Recommendation Ask in advance. You want to give them a couple of weeks to write the best letter for you!

Your counselors should have your all about me (Senior Brag Sheet) worksheet on file. Dont wait until the last minute. 17 College Visits/Preview Days Take advantage of these two excused

days to visit around. Review procedures and paperwork to make your visits official and excused absences. Your counselors have your all about me (Senior Brag Sheet) worksheet on file. Applications and Scholarships

Be VERY mindful of deadlines. Read the instructions. If they ask for an essay, include an essay. If it requires a counselors signature, make sure you get the signature. You dont want to be overlooked due to a minor error. If you write one essay for a couple of different applications, be sure to change names of schools and programs to match the college/university.

CAST College Application and Scholarship Thursdays starting Thursday, October 23 Grades/GPAs

Keep your grades up. Youre almost there! Colleges evaluate your GPA. Make sure youre working hard to earn good grades. You want them to see your best possible grade! It is never too late to excel in your classes that you are currently taking. College Selection

Look at the whole package. A college choice shouldnt be based solely on your favorite ball team. Ask about majors, Fine Arts, social activities, clubs, fraternities or sororities, intramural sports, etc. This will be your home for the next two to four years. Choose wisely! Websites

Visit the college/universitys website. They are the know-it-alls of that school Visit the BHS guidance page. Lots of links to resources all in one spot. Its a great resource! Q & A Time
