SO CLOSE… EARLY DECISION II

You’re so close… but it’s not yet time to rest on your laurels. Be sure to finalize your Early Decision II or Regular essays and have them ready. We can help you with your application and your essays immediately via our Common App 911 and Essay Guidance packages! Don’t miss the opportunity to leverage yourself, your essays and your application for the ever-important early rounds.

TAKE CONTROL

It is your responsibility to ensure every piece of your application has been submitted INCLUDING what your high school is supposed to submit. Your school won’t get deferred because a document was missing, YOU will. CHECK the specifics for your early round colleges and make SURE your high school has submitted their pieces and you’ve sent ACT, SAT, Subject Tests (you don’t need to send official AP scores).  Stay on top of the administrative piece behind your applications to increase your odds of staying on top of the Early Decision admit pile at your top choice school.
