Didn’t find what you’re looking for?13,000 experiences described on www.teenlife.com . This is a free comprehensive searchable database of summer and gap year programs, community service opportunities, college tips and more.
Tips and suggestions:
●Take advantage of your summer/winter break… Learn something, make friends, enjoy the experience. Colleges/universities pay attention to what you do with your free time.
●Apply broadly… You go through all the work and effort to complete one application, why not do two or more? This may leave you with more options to choose from.
●Mind deadlines… Does the application need to be postmarked or received by the deadline?
●Ask recommenders EARLY… Complete a “brag sheet” (located in the NJUHSD Counseling Handbook) and email to each of your recommenders.
●Thanks!... Send a thank you message to people who wrote a letter on your behalf.
