Summer may seem like a long time from now but it’s never too early to start preparing! Summer is an amazing time for students to stand out towards different colleges and universities in order to make the process a little less stressful when applications come rolling around. There are multiple different ways to stand out but the best things students can do to start preparing is:
1. College Classes
Taking college courses is something that would be a huge benefit credit wise but would also
show schools that you are able and ready to take college level coursework. Students are able to take classes online or find local universities offered courses. There are so many different
courses you may be able to choose from so look at this as a test run for things you may be
Finding a job or internship is something that shows responsibility and commitment towards
something giving schools an image of maturity. It could also help students narrow down their
desired career path and see what is the most intriguing. It is also always good to have different activities on your resume.
Volunteering allows students to explore their interests while also giving back to the community. Being a volunteer shows a sense of leadership for schools and it allows you to experience so many different opportunities in multiple different fields. Not only does it help students stand out but it's also good if service/volunteer hours are needed for certain scholarships.
4. Personal interests
Use the summer to find things that interest you. If traveling is important, go travel. If you want to start learning about the stock market or learn Japanese, do it. Summer gives a wide window of time so fill it up with things that interest you, colleges may wanna hear about it!
5. SAT or ACT Test Prep
Use those couple months to prepare for upcoming tests if needed. SAT or ACT scores could
give a huge boost on applications and allow students to qualify for certain scholarships. If a tutor is needed, reach out to Sapneil Tutoring, we would be happy to help.
