Checklist for Early Decision/Early Action Candidates

   Get all application materials and information from the college to which you plan to apply. Check filing dates. Check all rules that apply to your school. (For example, some schools do not automatically defer students to their regular admissions pool, if they are not selected under an early program.)

  1. If you have not yet done so, schedule a campus visit as soon as possible and an interview, if appropriate.

  2. Complete on-line Senior questionnaire NOW and let us know in the Guidance Office of your intention to apply early. Give us the institution’s name and the due date for the application.

  3. Check to see if all required recommendations are on file in the Guidance Office. If they are not, see your teachers immediately and let them know you are applying early and that your recommendations are needed in the Guidance Office.

  4. If you haven’t already done so, please schedule an appointment with Myra Ross to review your plans, due dates, etc. She will need to meet with you prior to October 15th, if possible. Appointment slots are filled up quickly, so complete your questionnaire today!

  5. Be sure all necessary testing (SAT reasoning and subject) will be completed on time. Most schools receive October test results in time. Plan to "Rush" scores from November testing, if necessary. It is your responsibility to send your SAT scores directly to the college.

  6. Plan to attend the Early Decision/Early Action Workshop in mid-September, the date and time are listed on the back cover of your Senior Handbook.
