Did You Know?
Looking to apply Early Action (EA) or Early Decision (ED) to college this year? Many high school guidance counselors require students to provide their completed application two weeks prior to the deadline. This allows the guidance counselor enough time to complete the school forms and submit them in a timely manner. For the unprepared student this can be quite a shock. Suddenly that November 15 deadline becomes November 1. The best way to reduce your stress level is to ask your guidance office what they need and when they need it. Less surprise equals a smoother process for you and your guidance counselor.
