Application Assistance students are still being accepted. We are working on resumes and personal statements now. By August most applications will be ready to go so that our students can earn early responses. Schools such as FIU go around to campuses and accept on the spot if application has been completed. It is a good feeling to know you are in a college early in the year.
If so, College Experts is offering, a new application program for these students.
For years this has been requested. It includes resumes, essays, plans for classes and activities consulting and advice on how enter grades for SSARS. We have been particularly successful with the top three Florida Schools: U of Florida, FSU and UCF. We work one on one with your student under the direction of Mrs Ronkin and our Center Directors. It includes Bright Futures Scholarship application if your student qualifies. Call to see what score your student needs to qualify for this money to be used only for Florida Colleges. He/she can qualify until June of the senior year.
Let us help your student earn the best educational value in the country. The tuition is amongst the lowest in the country. Your family must be legal residents of Florida to qualify for this tuition.
Call for more information!
You must accept one school and send a deposit by May 1st or all your hard work will skip away. That deposit holds your spot in that school. A deposit for a dorm room does not hold a spot for you.
The top 90 schools have designed a new application for this year. They want to know more about you, so they have designed a locker room where you can share what your passion in life is that you cannot wait to share with your new classmates. We are busy trying to identify those passions with our younger students so they can participate in what they love to do and share that with others who also enjoy the same out of class experiences. We are finding summer programs, internships, jobs, and research opportunities as part of the application program. You cannot write about something you have never experienced. Use Grades 9-11 to do something!
The acceptances are rolling in. Come see the wall in the front office. This week we have heard from Northwestern, Boston University, Emory, Johns Hopkins, Washington U, Cornell, Vanderbilt and Barnard. By April 1st we should know most decisions. The year has been very successful. If your student has not called us with his or her choices, please take a moment to share the good news.
The National Merit Class, which was so successful, last year, will be starting in the beginning of June. The minimum score is a 1200 in Reading and Math on the PSAT or SAT. Space is very limited in this program. If your 9th or 10th grader has a score which is close, start classes now to ensure he or she makes it. We use official scores or our own scores. You must be registered and in good standing with College Experts to join. There is an application to be filled out and a transcript to be presented.
New classes start this week. For those who have not started, spread the news that the next round of SAT and ACT classes are starting next week. College Board has made some changes for 2017. They are adding an August test date and eliminating the January test.
