With summer upon us and college-bound students preparing for their first semester in college, few things can be more daunting for these rising college freshmen than leaving the comfort and security of mom’s home cooking.
For many rising seniors, the end of their junior year marks the beginning of the long, and often stressful, college application process. While the full Common Application and school specific supplements aren’t released until August, some essay topics have already been revealed, and many students are taking the initiative to begin working on their application essays even before summer kicks off.
The school year is coming to a close but that doesn’t mean you should put down the books! At IvyWise, our counselors recommend reading at least one book a month outside of your already-assigned class reading, and the summer months allow for more leisurely reading.
