Tic Toc Rising Seniors

Today's rising seniors have just 60 days to prepare for the start of college admission applications. To prepare, they need to consider identifying their major if they have not done so. This takes thought and research. They also need to design their college admission targets. This too, will take thought, research and college visits. Then there is the development of a college essay that represents the student well-this takes months rather than hours.

It is true that students can just wait until the deadline and wing it with college applications. However, those students will be competing with students who have taken the time to prepare. What a student chooses to do depends on what they would like to accomplish in terms of college acceptances.

Parents play a key role in helping rising seniors realize the enormity of the task before them... and the timeline. Because time management is an executive skill that high school students are still developing, parental guidance is extremely important. Rising seniors who do not get started this summer will face a terrible choice: lower grades in the fall because of the additional workload of college applications or substandard college applications resulting in less than desirable college admission decisions.
