Can you feel it in the air? Spring is just around the corner! What does that mean for our Juniors? Researching universities :) Please make sure that you are filling in your "Ducks in a Row" spreadsheet (the suggested time to spend is a minimum hour each week). Remember that this spreadsheet is just a template and that you can add/delete columns that you find most useful for investigating different schools that you are interested in. You will find an exemplar from a current senior directly under the "Ducks in a Row" link. This student allotted points to certain aspects of each university that allowed him a clear visual as to which school was a better "fit" for his particular wants/needs. Perhaps this is something that you could do! So, make your university research authentic for yourself. This way, when you present to your counselor and your parents at the student-led conference, you can speak about your chosen schools in a real way. If you are unsure as to whether or not you are doing this research "right", please contact your counselor with any concerns/questions that you may have.
