    Helpful Reminders 

    • Make sure you look at all qualifications for colleges to see what scores you need to get and what portion of the tests you need to take in order to apply for the program.

    • Some schools require the SAT with essay or with multiple subject tests, and some do not.

    • Make sure you read CAREFULLY on whether or not you have completed everything you need for the application.

    • You also may want to apply for honors colleges, where you will likely need recommendation letters from teachers or other outside sources as well as a couple of essays that you need to write.

    • RECOMMENDATIONS:  Make sure you provide teachers with as much time as possible to provide a recommendation. Also, a nice thank you letter goes a long way. Make sure you guys are very grateful for the time and effort they put in to help you out.
