Chalk Talk: Tips for Applying to College
There are a number of steps that students will want to have in line when they begin applying to college. First of all, applying for financial aid and scholarships needs to be planned for and students need to know the deadlines they face for those. Students also have to prepare to take tests like the SAT or ACT. Some colleges rely heavily on standardized testing. State colleges, for example, tend not to accept a student who doesn’t do well-enough on testing, and yet will often blanket-accept students who meet the minimum requirement, even if their grade point average leaves something to be desired. Other colleges have done away with standardized testing entirely and require an essay, interview, graded paper, or some other demonstration of ability. Lastly, students will want to ask teachers they know well for letters of recommendation.
