Junior Year Survival Tips


Aug   2016



First day of junior year. You walk into your high school. The sounds in the hallways hit your ears, familiar but still just a little too loud. You have a minor heart attack when you forget where you’re supposed to be, but you remember you’re starting your day with Algebra II. (Ugh.) You make your way through the halls. And before you know it, summer vacation is just a distant, sunscreen-scented memory…and your college search is closer than ever before.

Even if you’re not quite ready to start your college search (but, really, what have you got to lose?), it’s good to get prepared for the year to come. Because things aren’t going to slow down between now and April, you know?

Read these short blog posts to get a sense of the junior year college search timeline, getting your college search started, tips for dealing with stress, and more.
