August 1st is the most important day of the year for rising seniors in high school. As students return to school this year, classes may look a little different. With the shift to socially distant or online learning, students will have to adapt to many new things. However, one thing has not changed: August 1st is the most important day of the year for rising seniors in high school.
On August 1st, colleges and universities across the country open their application window, complete with essay prompts and supplemental questions. This information is easily accessed through the Common Application, a free portal that aggregates information from nearly 900 colleges and universities nationwide.
We know this process can be confusing. We also know that parents and students often grossly underestimate the amount of time they will need to spend filling out applications, preparing for entrance exams, and drafting essays. A little help can go a long way.
At Class 101, we have you covered.
We have been preparing to help our students get a jump-start on the college application process whether that be helping them request their letters of recommendation, helping them understand the Common Application, or providing feedback on their required college essays. With our guidance, your student can submit knowing they put forth the best application possible.
