Sophmore Timeline

September

  • Look into taking the PSAT.
  • Start your own checklist of important dates.
  • Begin to mange your time.  Prioritize your activities, academic and social. (It’s what college is all about).

October

  • Start getting involved.  The level of involvement is more important then the number of activities.
  • Consider part-time employment.

November

  • Academic performance is crucial.  Starting this year grades are on your record.
  • Make a portfolio of academic achievements, volunteer work, and any personal accomplishments.

December

  • Talk to friends or family about college firsthand when they are home on break.
  • If PSAT’s were taken, review results and take action on how to prepare for future standardized tests.

January

  • Get a good start on the semester.  Grades tend to slide in the Spring.

February

  • Register for Junior year courses.  Be sure to challenge yourself.  Colleges look positively on AP and Honors courses completed.

March

  • Register for the SAT II Subject test.  These tests are 1 hour exams testing you on classes and information you have already completed.  The practice and information is priceless for the SAT.

April & May

  • Take SAT II if offered
  • Think about your Summer plans as far as productivity.

June, July, & August

  • Do your required reading and then some.
  • Consider crossword puzzles or other brain activities to stay sharp and increase vocabulary.

Testimonials

There was no “catch”, just a detailed total plan of lowering our Expected Family Contribution, providing us some tax advantages and staying within the agreed upon budget that we established. The additional ‘perks’ of filling out financial aid forms, working with our children on narrowing down the selection of colleges and essay writing was just icing on the cake!
