|Fall Semester |
Talk to your guidance counselor (or teachers, if you don't have access to a guidance counselor) about the following:
* Reviewing the high school curriculum needed to satisfy the requirements of the colleges you are interested in attending
* Finding out about Advanced Placement courses:
1 What courses are available
2 Whether or not you are eligible for the classes that you want to take
3 How to enroll in them for your junior year
* Update your file, or start one if you haven't already. (See Grade 9 for a list of what it should contain.)
| * Continue extracurricular activities, as admissions officers look at students' extracurricular activities when considering them for admission. |
* Continue participation in academic enrichment programs, summer workshops, and camps with specialty focuses such as music, arts, science, etc.
* Take the P SAT. The scores will not count for National Merit Scholar consideration in your sophomore year, but it is valuable practice for when you take the P SAT again in your junior year (when the scores will count), as well as for the SAT I exam which you should also be taking in your junior year. You will receive your P SAT results in December.
