2 Resumes in High School? All Juniors should create a resume to highlight their involvement through-out high school. Resumes can be shared with Colleges/Universities during the application and/or interview process. Students can distribute resumes to High School Administrators, Counselors, Teachers, Coaches, etc. for letters of recommendation. Resume creation can be easy using Naviance!

College visits are essential in researching potential schools. Before students and families commit several years and thousands of dollars to a college, they should be sure the student is choosing a place that is a good match to their personality and interests.

12 Mind the calendar: Try to schedule your visit while school is still in session. By visiting while students are still on campus, you will get a better feel for campus life.

13 Meet the experts: Talk to the current students. Specific questions may yield interesting and helpful answers. Take the campus tour which will allow you to see the full array of opportunities at the college. Most colleges have information sessions and tours several times a week. Stop by the admissions office and introduce yourself. You can also collect contact information at that time. Colleges do keep track of which applicants have demonstrated genuine interest in the school, and this is a great way to demonstrate your interest!

14 Be a student for a day (or night):
Some schools sponsor overnight programs where you can stay with a current student. Schools will also invite admitted students to spend a weekend on campus. Even if you do not stay over, most schools will allow you to sit in on a class if the request is made in advance.

As you compare schools, you will be able to determine which aspects you like and which aspects you don’t like. Keep track of details from each school and record your feelings during the visit. Remember, you want to end up at the school which feels like home. Resources:

16 The college essay Cherry Hill High School West Mr. Nick Caputi
Junior College Night 2013 Guidance Department

17 The college essay: Connect to something personal to you, something you are passionate about…the college essay is really a personal essay. Humanize the numbers; the who, not the what. Use your voice, your perspective, and your uniqueness; perfection is not required. Combine emotion and intellect (sophisticated essays could be void of emotion, thus they’ll be void of that personal essay feel). Do not overdo the emotion!

18 The college Essay: Try to avoid trite topics (if you cannot, then make your common experience an uncommon essay). Never assume your reader (be careful with sensitive/controversial topics). You are revealing a part of yourself to a school to elicit a reaction from the reader and to make them feel something.

19 The college essay: Tie into the Fit; remember, colleges are trying to put together a school community. Respect requested limits. Don’t let Bill Gates be your editor.
