Seniors – What To Do in August
This column is geared toward rising seniors who will graduate in June 2012.
Last month we discussed getting started on essays and included information on both the Common App essays and the UC personal statements . This month we share more details to help seniors begin drafting their essays. To get in the mood, check out this list from Stanford University of their favorite opening lines from admissions essays . Our favorite is, “I change my name each time I place an order at Starbucks.”
The Common App will go “live” on August 1. Seniors can now start filling out the application online and downloading appropriate forms for counselors and teachers. For a list of Common App schools, click here.
