March for Juniors

February 28, 2017

Here we go - only a couple of months left until you are a senior ... what are you doing?

  • Finalize your summer schedule NOW and get it out to the coaches who are following you

    • College coaches need to know where you will be at

    • They are planning their summer schedules now - stay ahead and get on their schedule

    • Don't expect coaches to go to Arizona in the summer - the fall yes - but summer is about you getting to them. 

  • Narrow your college list to a reasonable number, (ie Top 30)

    • Continue to explore their websites

    • Continue to build relationships with their coaches

    • Schedule time to talk with me about each program

  • Size Yourself Up vs Your Top 30

    • What do you like about each?  Dislike about each?

    • Do you value one-on-one interaction with your teachers, coaches?  Then think small

    • Are you looking for a specialized major?  Maybe a large school would be best.

    • Do you want to play right away? Be honest!!

    • For a complete rundown of various options, be sure to check with me

  • See College Representatives and/or coaches

    • Keep an eye on your college list for visiting admissions representatives or coaches to your school.

    • Be sure to follow up with every representative or coach you see.

    • Meeting with this admission representative will help you determine whether a college visit would be useful or not as well as e-mailing with each college coach would do the same.

  • Prepare for the SAT or ACT

    • Carve out a little time during this month or in April, to take a close look at one or both tests.  If you are thinking about getting a tutor or taking a prep class, ask about the qualifications and experience of the person who will be teaching you.

    • If you like FREE … try www.number2.com

  • Survive SAT Test day

    • Too many students stay up until the wee hours on Friday night and expect to do well Saturday morning on the SAT.  Treat it like a normal school night and if you don’t know where the actual test site is located, leave a few minutes early. 

    • Don’t forget your ID, pencils, a calculator, a snack and a watch.
