    Junior Timeline

     

    • Continue to enroll in challenging courses. Remember universities will look at your grades beginning in 9th grade.
    • Stay active in clubs and/or sports. Look for leadership roles in both!
    • Study for the SAT and/or ACT. Look for programs within our school or community that might enable you to study with a tutor. You also can make or buy flashcards, get test prep books at a local bookstore or check them out from our school library, and even find free test-prep questions online.
    • Take the SAT and/or ACT.  All juniors take the ACT for free on February 28, 2017.   If you prefer one test over the other, take it again.
    • Listen to the morning announcements for colleges visiting MRHS.  Students can  check which colleges are visiting and sign up on-line through the MRHS Counseling website.  Research admissions requirements for universities you’re interested in.
    • Attend College 411 at MRHS on April 6th from 6:00-8:30pm.
    • Begin whittling down the list of colleges you’re interested in. Make sure your list has both “dream” and “safety” schools. 
    • Update your portfolio/resume with leadership roles, volunteer hours, awards, etc.
    • Summer activities: Continue volunteering for an organization you’re interested in, check out the Summer Opportunities newsletter on the MRHS Counseling Website for study abroad/college immersion opportunities, visit colleges over the summer and/or long weekends, write college application essays.
