Summer in Junior Year

Summer in Junior Year

1. Learn as much as you can about specific colleges and college life by visiting colleges, taking tours and interviewing where appropriate. Current college students are an excellent source of information relative to life on campus.

2. Spend your summer in a meaningful way (i.e. work, community service, travel and/or other educational/cultural experience).

3. Request applications; review them; begin to gather your thoughts and develop ideas for application essays.

4. Inquire about merit (no need) scholarship opportunities available through colleges, church, social, fraternal and civic organizations. Parents should investigate merit scholarship opportunities through their places of employment.
