Tutorspree is kicking off Admissions month with the Ultimate College Application Checklist—a series of lists for any student at any point of high school, from fall freshman to spring senior. Every day this month Tutorspree will be posting admissions tips on their blog, so make sure you check them out!
Freshman Year Fall
- Plan your courses for all 4 years of high school. Know what curriculum is required for the colleges you like, and plan accordingly. For example, Stanford asks for at least 4 years of English and Math, and 3 years each of History, Science, and Foreign Language. Your plans might change, but at least think about what courses you want to take now so you’ll be able to fit in everything.
- Sign up for clubs and community service activities. This is a great way to meet upperclassmen, it looks good for college, and it sets you up for leadership positions in the future. Try everything that looks interesting to you — you’ll soon figure out what you like best.
- Make friends. High school is tough, and it only gets busier from here. You’ll want a supportive group of friends to help you through. In the fall of freshman year, everyone is open to making new friends, so this is the time to strike up conversations and get to know new people.
