It’s the summer after your junior year, and you cannot wait for senior year to get here! However, it’s easy in all that excitement to pass by what can be the most powerful tool in your belt for securing your top college choice: THE SUMMER!
I know there’s a lot going on in these months you have off, but you will still have more time on your hands than during the school year. That time can be like a cute, little unicorn float that’s nice for lounging but “is not a lifesaving device,” OR it can be like a life jacket that keeps you afloat in the vast ocean that is the college search process.
So here’s how to make the most of your junior-senior summer:
Your summer between junior and senior year is like wet sand. You can let it slip through your fingers … the texture is kind of cool … sorry, got distracted! OR you can use your summer to build the foundation for an impressive sand castle. The first is fun, but the latter develops skills and practices you will need later – and can make you some money to pay for your college of choice. Ultimately, it’s your summer and your decision, but I think if you look beyond the summer, it makes it an easier decision.
