This past week “The Choice,” the New York Times’ blog on college admissions, published an excellent checklist for college-bound juniors.

Here’s the list:

  • Prepare for Standardized Testing
  • Ask Your Teachers for Letters of Recommendation
  • Review Your Academic Schedule for Next Year
  • Make Plans to Visit Colleges Over the Summer Months
  • Start Thinking About Your College Essays (my favorite – wonder why :))
  • Hold On to Those Papers!
  • Make Your Summer Plans
  • Finish the School Year in Strong Fashion
