Your senior portrait day is part of the FUN of senior year, but there’s a lot of work that needs to be done too.

You’re allllllll-most done, but there’s still a long way to go {sorry if I’m the first to break that to ya}.

The GOOD NEWS is that I’ve been immersed in high school + senior year life for awhile now and I’ve collected some good intel to help ya. I’m not writing your college application essay for you though.

Been there – done that – don’t wanna go back!

Juniors:: Decide whether you’re taking the SAT or the ACT. Colleges accept both scores. I know Midwest colleges lean toward the ACT and Northwest colleges lean toward the SAT, but as long as you have a score from one of the tests you’re good. Your high school typically administers at least one of these tests to you during the school day too.

We’ve been ACT-takers in our house, and if you are too then here are five tips to help you prep ⇒ ACT Prep

Still looking or haven’t started visiting colleges yet? Check these two blog pieces:: College Comparison Checklist + College Tips

When does the application window open:: If you’ve narrowed down the colleges you’re applying to know when the application opens AND the last day to apply. That also includes not waiting until the last minute to apply, send your letters of rec, write your essay, fill out the FASFA…

Whad-da-ya mean I need a yearbook photo? Every 2020 senior gets that postcard in the mail to get their senior yearbook photo taken. Take a look at the yearbook photo post to get the whole story on if you HAVE to go.

If you’re planning to have a graduation party, then my Graduation Party Checklist is a MUST-HAVE!

And last BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST {in my book} get your senior portraits scheduled! You only graduate high school once, so make sure it gets captured!

I capture your best self before you head off to live your best life!

Cheers! 💖-Andrea
