The Huffington Post has a great piece today with advice for HS seniors on what not to do. Here are two of the items on the DO NOT DO LIST that I feel are extremely important:
2. Not being aware of your social media footprint.
This is becoming a bigger issues in the past five years. More college admissions offices are looking at applicants social media footprint and many are judging students by what they find.
5. Leaving your personal statement for the last minute.
Leaving your personal statement until after school starts only adds to your stress. Between classes, homework, games/pratices, your part time job & your college application process you and your parents can become overwhelmed very quickly. Take the time over the summer to first think about and outline your personal statement. You'll then be able to flesh it out and finalize it by the end of summer vacation.
