Whether you’re a senior getting ready to submit your enrollment deposit, or a junior just starting out on your college search, we’ve got tips to keep you on track throughout the process. Here are the things you should be doing this month:
If you’re a junior:
√ Plan your senior schedule. With just a few months left of your junior year, it's time to start planning the courses you want to take as a senior. Speak with your guidance counselor about which classes will strengthen your college applications and make you a more appealing prospect.
√ Decide if you want to retake the SATs. If you’ve already taken the SATs, there are a few things to consider when it comes to retaking the exam. If you're already planning on doing so, check the upcoming registration dates. If not, you might be interested in learning about colleges that are becoming test-optional (like Siena!).
If you’re a senior:
√ Compare your financial aid packages. Once you’ve received your admissions decisions and financial aid packages from the schools you applied to, have a conversation with your parents about affordability. Comparing your packages will help you narrow down your list, and may even lead you to a final decision.
√ Join Siena’s Class of 2019 Facebook group. If you've been accepted to Siena and it's your top choice (fingers crossed!), join our Facebook group dedicated to the Class of 2019 ASAP to chat with other future Saints. Who knows? You could end up meeting some great friends before you even matriculate.
Also seniors: don’t forget to register for Accepted Student Day on March 30. You’ll have a chance to meet with faculty from your major, connect with other members of the Class of 2019 in person and explore our campus.
