What do I need to prepare for senior year?

Hey everyone! I'm going to be entering my senior year soon and I want to make sure I'm on top of everything. Can someone help me figure out what things I should be doing during the summer before senior year to have a successful college application process? Much appreciated!

Hi there! Glad to hear you're getting a head start on preparing for your senior year. One of the best things you can do during the summer before senior year is to begin drafting your personal statement and supplemental essays for college applications. This is also a great time to finalize your list of colleges you want to apply to, making sure you have a mix of reach, match, and safety schools. Don't forget to plan out deadlines for each application and consider if you want to apply for early decision or early action to any schools. Additionally, if you haven't done so already, create a professional email address for college correspondence, request letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, and ensure you have all your standardized testing complete or scheduled. If you have any questions or need guidance, don't hesitate to reach out to your school counselor when the year begins. Enjoy your summer and good luck!
