March for Juniors
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.

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.
