Counseling Help for Rising High School Seniors

Question_markThe summer is almost over and high school students’ minds are returning, perhaps reluctantly, to the school year at hand.

As independent college counselors, we’ve been getting more incoming inquiries, particularly from rising seniors or their parents, about getting the senior year right in terms of preparing for the college admission process and taking the right classes this year.

A couple of inquiries that are on point:

“Immediate questions about course selection for Senior year….what do colleges look for as far as rigor in your Senior year in HS? Our daughter is looking at competitive colleges, but concerned about GPA, Class Rank and SAT scores as emphasized on CollegeBoard website.”


“Hi, I am a rising senior in high school. I am interested in finding out more about the college admissions process. I would like assistance in the essay, interview and selection process. Please contact me to discuss.”

It’s not too late to get your ducks in a row in terms of taking the right courses in your senior year and rounding out your extracurricular experience. The counselors here at JD College Consulting have real work high school counseling experience as well as deep relationships with dozens of college admissions professionals.

Don’t’ wait until Thanksgiving to consider college options. We can get started helping you today.
