Happy October.... which means, deadline dates are right around the corner! Please log into your College Planner Pro account and click on the "Colleges" tab to review your deadlines for all of your schools. The list of deadlines is in a column on the left side of the screen. There, click on each of your school's names (under the "My Application Deadlines" list) and then "Update My Application Status."
If you have not done so already, please order final senior transcripts to be sent to each of your schools (except those that only accept the SSAR: self-reported academic record). It is more than okay to send transcripts to schools that you have not officially applied to yet.
Please also make sure that you have sent your ACT or SAT scores to each of your schools even if you self-reported them on an application. Please log into your College Board or ACT account today to complete this. Again, it is perfectly fine to send test scores ahead of an application!
If your schools require supplemental essays, you should be working on these. Ideally, I would like to see your rough drafts two weeks before the school's application deadline.
Lastly, by now, you should have "assigned" your school counselor and teacher(s) to the "Recommender" section of the Common Application. They need time to fill out their recommendation forms / write letters for you.
If you have ANY questions about the content of this email, please come to next week's (and future) Wednesday Senior Boot Camp! The TCM team is here to help you.
