For SCCS Seniors, a moment they have been preparing for all of these years has arrived – the college application season. On Monday night, SCCS Seniors and their parents gathered to discuss final information regarding tips on timing, information to prepare, testing and more.
“One of the best ways to approach this process is to first pray and then narrow down your college search by writing out your criteria,” advised Michele Puglisi, SCCS Director of Academics and College Advisement. “You have to critically think through what you really want in a college experience. Although the filter of programs and academics is crucial, think beyond that and consider the school size, distance from home and surroundings. Do you want to be at a small school, a mid-range or a large school (10K)? Do you enjoy knowing your professors? If so, you might want to pick a school where there are only 18 to 25 students in a class. Or perhaps if you don’t mind 500 in a lecture hall, you might like a bigger school.”
