Recent Articles of Interest The below articles are ones I’ve read over the last month and found interesting and valuable. This month I chose three articles from the College Tuition Advisory Services (CTAS) because I really like the content they are generating on admissions-related data.

Tips of the Month:
Teacher Recommendations: Juniors - The last few weeks of school are a great time to ask your teachers if they would be willing to write you a recommendation this fall. I recommend asking 2-3 teachers.
Common App Personal Essay: Juniors – Have you reviewed the Common App Personal Essay Prompts? I’d recommend working on this essay through the summer with the goal of completing it in early August. The prompts are available here: https://www.commonapp.org/blog/2022-2023-common-app-essay-prompts
Summer Reading: All Grades – What are you reading for pleasure this summer!? Good readers make good writers! Make sure you have something to read when you head the beach, are sitting poolside, or are just hanging around the house avoiding the heat!
