College Admission Road Map for Juniors

Standardized Testing Planning

PSAT, ACT, SAT, Subject Tests – We can help you understand your options, college requirements, and when to prepare and register for standardized testing. CollegeDrive also offers free practice tests, prep classes and tutoring for SAT and ACT.

College List Building

Through self-reflection, research, college fairs, and college visits, you will begin to put together a balanced list of colleges that meet your personal and academic interests. Understand what makes a good college fit, how to match schools to your academic profile, and how to maximize your opportunities for merit aid.

Preparation for College Fairs, Campus Visits, and Interviews

These face-to-face contacts will help you understand more about the colleges you are interested in and allow colleges to learn more about you. Knowing what to expect with these networking opportunities and how they fit into the college search and application process will help you make the most of these aspects of the college search and application process.

Bridge to Senior Year

We will help you understand the senior year college application timeline, including application options such as Early Action and Early Decision, as well as how each piece of your college application comes together to help you present yourself. Summer is a great time to continue test preparation, research scholarships, start honing your college list, and to begin thinking about your Personal Statement (the Common Application opens August 1st.)
