Advice for becoming Juniors

As you transition into your junior year, it's important to remember that this is not the time to relax and take it easy. Instead, make sure to attend college fairs to explore different options and gather information about potential schools and programs that interest you.

It's crucial not to overlook the importance of standardized tests like the PSAT, SAT, or ACT. These exams play a significant role in the college admissions process, so be sure to prepare and take them seriously, well that's if you want to take these practice tests.

Don't isolate yourself from your school counselor and teachers. They are valuable resources who can provide guidance, support, and advice as you navigate through your junior year and plan for the future.

To make the most of your junior year, get involved in extracurricular activities that align with your interests and passions. This will not only enhance your college applications but also help you develop valuable skills and experiences.

Don't procrastinate when it comes to planning your summer activities. Whether it's volunteering, interning, or taking classes, use your summer break wisely to further your personal and academic growth.

Have an open and honest "money talk" with your parents or whom ever had experience collage and knows what's up, to discuss college costs, financial aid options, and how to budget and save for your future education.

Start building your college resume by documenting your achievements, awards, extracurricular activities, and community service. This will help you stay organized and showcase your strengths and accomplishments when it's time to apply to colleges.

REMEMBER it's important to always maintain a positive mindset and never lose hope, even when faced with challenges. Although it may seem difficult at times, by putting in some extra effort and showing determination, you have the ability to achieve almost anything you set your mind to. Good Luck future Juniors!
