Seniors

  • Keep track of all acceptances, rejections, and waitlists.
  • If waitlisted, move ahead with other plans. You can always change your plans if you get off a waitlist.
  • Keep your grades up.
  • If you have ruled out any colleges that accepted you, notify them. This is a courtesy to other applicants, and it will help the colleges manage their waitlists and extend the correct number of acceptance letters.
  • Go to accepted student open houses if offered.
  • Choose the college you wish to attend and let Post Grad know!
  • Continue working on scholarships.  Scholarship information is available on Naviance.  Please keep a list of all scholarships offered to you.
