Seniors-                                                                                                                                                                                2/5/2016
Congrats – you’ve reached the coveted “second semester senior” status. However, you can’t kick back just yet. Here are a few items that should be a top priority for you:

• College is an expensive investment. Make sure you working on scholarships and the FAFSA. Don’t stop there!
• Deadlines haunt us and yet they cannot be ignored. You should complete any remaining college applications, along with applications for honors programs, housing, ROTC, etc.
• If you haven’t done a campus visit, IT IS TIME. If you have the opportunity, use this time to visit the schools that made your final list. You’ll thank yourself when admissions decisions start rolling in.
• I cannot stress this enough; for many college-bound students, financial aid is essential. Talk to your parents to be sure that the FAFSA and other financial aid documents are being submitted on time. Lovell High School FAFSA Days are February 23-26, 2016. We will be in touch on the times you sign up for to fill out the FAFSA. If you haven’t signed up and you would like help filling out the FAFSA, please call the school and get a time. Please see my webpage on FAFSA for what you will need.
• If you’ve already received an acceptance or three, congrats! Begin making plans to visit your potential new schools and start reviewing housing options. After all, just like college in general, some dorms will be a better fit than others.
