Senior year means one thing, college! The time frame of February to May is filled with suspense of waiting for letters and emails to come in the mail, and make their dreams come true. For some student athletes, they have already committed to a college their Sophomore year! Other students wait to make their final, official decision in April and May, after taking in many things into consideration. Most students choose to take a campus visit to the schools that they have been accepted to. It is important to everyone that they like the school they are going to, including the atmosphere and look of the campus as a whole, and the academic opportunities and activities that they offer. Spring break is a time where many families take short trips to visit schools and try to narrow down their choices. Students should take the distance of the school, academics and activities into account when choosing to commit to a school, and pick one they can truly see themselves succeeding at. Something that all students take into consideration is how their family feels about the schools that they are considering. Many students want their parents to be pleased and proud of where they are going, and are take their feedback to heart. Once a student has decided on where they will go, they then have to go to the school site, or their portal and confirm their admission, making it complete. Afterwards they then go onto their other schools and options and decline their offers so the schools are not holding a position for someone else, who may be waitlisted. Once they have officially decided on a school, they can start to fill out housing information, finding roommates, and going to orientations to pick classes! Realizing that your journey of picking and applying to colleges has ended is a wave of relief to everyone, and us seniors can’t wait to start the next chapter in our lives.
