2/9/14: Being a high school junior means Second Semester is the beginning of the College Mania. We are expected to complete a ridiculously long questionnaire packet and the Common Application in 1 week before we can meet with our counselor for the first of 4 meetings, go on visits, and have a list before summer. Stressful, right?
Maybe, maybe not. While I'm in no way fully ready to embark on this journey, I know that if I stay organized and keep a level head, everything will work out fine. At least, I hope so.
2/11/14: I've completed the Common App (essay and all), and my questionnaire! Now I can schedule my first meeting with my college counselor early next week! This is really happening!
2/21/14: I had my first meeting with my college counselor, and scheduled the next one for Monday. Next Thursday, I'll have my third meeting (with my mom). I am staying ahead of the game, and am very excited about the whole process.
3/25/14-3/28/24: I visited 5 colleges and liked 2 (Swarthmore and Wesleyan).
4/29/14: I went to the College Fair and visited 14 different tables (2 of which were the ones I liked from spring break).
5/28/14: I have my college list completed.
8/17/14: I start reworking my College Essays.
9/4/14: I have now visited a total of more schools and liked 2 of them. I also finished my Common App Essay.
12/24/14: I submit my last college application.
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
