The college application process is a tedious and long process. Ideally, the planning should start when you are in class 10 or even earlier. Here were providing you information about what should you do in the last few months if you are a late bloomer like many of your other friends.
Register for the October SAT. Why this? This is your last chance to be eligible to apply for the Early application deadlines on November 1st. The next SAT will be available only in December and that will be a little late to submit your applications when your chances are the best.
Also, research and select 4-8 colleges that “FIT” your profile and look for their score requirements so that you work towards your SAT scores accordingly.
Create an excel sheet of all your chosen college’s requirements. Download their application forms, if applicable, and all the essay topics in one place so that you can decide where to start with.
Try and score high on the SAT.
Complete all your applications for the schools where you want to apply Early Decision(binding) or Early Action(non-binding). Send your SAT scores and high school transcripts along with the Letters of Recommendations from the teachers.
Start looking for options for financial aid. There are many options available. Most of them are listed on the university website.
You hear back from the schools you have applied to.
Evaluate all your options and make a decision to attend one of the many acceptances you have. Respond to you chosen college and confirm your slot.
Congratulations!! You did it!!
