Getting ready for the college application process can be absolutely overwhelming.

Which classes should you take in high school to prepare for your college career? How do extracurriculars, standardized tests, grades and employment impact my chances for admission? What will my essay say about me? How will I pay for this?

A great way to begin the process is to look at a timeline that lists activities to complete as you navigate the college admissions process. Review each section, see what you’ve missed, work to get yourself caught up on the things you can change, and don’t stress over what you can’t!
