Surviving your final year in High School
- Choose schools that YOU want and are interested in, that will benefit YOUR life and future.
- Apply early for a chance to be considered for early admission. By doing this, you will give yourself the opportunity to take a breath of relief earlier in the year, instead of waiting until the end of the year.
- Go to fairs, open houses, campus tours, etc when trying to decide what school you want to go to. Ultimately, if you don’t like the surrounding you’re in, you’re not going to do very well/you’re not going to enjoy what you’re doing for the next 4 years or so. This was said to me by various teachers at my school.
- Talk to your guidance counselor, parents, family friends, friends, teachers, etc and ask them for their opinion. You don’t and shouldn’t necessarily listen to everything they say, but it will help you better understand yourself and what you want to do and where you want to be. They might notice things about you that you never really considered yourself.
- Email the admissions offices regarding any questions you have about their program. Sometimes, the different responses may actually be an important influential factor in your decision. One response may not be as satisfying and desired compared to some of the other ones.
- Join the social media pages to meet you potential future classmates and friends. It’s a great way to meet new people, find roommates, and learn more about your program and school. I would highly recommend doing this.
These tips are just some things that I found helpful when I was in my final year. Some of these might help you too! Let me know if you guys would like me to do some more tips on other subjects! 🙂
