Dear high school Juniors,
Needless to say, your college application process will be different than other years. Since standardized tests have been cancelled this spring and there is uncertainty about summer and fall test dates, you will need to find other ways to demonstrate your academic strengths. Now, more than ever, character and the positive impact you have on those around you will be paramount. Trust me, character counts! As an example of this, take a look at the recent message that Harvard sent to future applicants. Take a look at the important factors they consider besides grades and test scores: Growth and Potential, Interests and Activities, Personal Character and Contributions to your Community.
Here are some suggestions of steps you can take today to help you as you complete your applications this coming summer.
All my best wishes to you and your family.
Be Well, Be Kind,
