College Application Tips

General Tips:

#1:  Work backwards from the deadline and give yourself LOTS of time.  The deadline is NOT the day you are supposed to submit!  Give the teachers who are writing you letters of recommendation plenty of time to write their letters, and be sure to give them all the information they need.

#2:  If you are applying to UC's and/to private schools, you should be thinking about writing application essays.  You can give me a rough draft if you'd like some feedback on tone and content.
