Ep. 43 | Catch-up Session for Rising Juniors

If your rising junior is just getting to the college admissions party, and wants to get “caught up” on what should have been happening for the last two years, listen to this podcast for the update.

Show Notes:

At the end of March, PrepWell Academy closed registration to the Class of 2022 (rising juniors). In our eyes, June 1st marks the point of no return. Either you care about college admissions - or you don’t. If you do, the end of sophomore year is the last time that you have a chance to enroll in PrepWell Academy.

Because of the COVID shutdown and our multiple airings on Shark Tank, this year happened to be a giant year for last-minute sophomore enrollees. To make sure this cohort gets up to speed quickly, I have laid out exactly what should have happened in 9th and 10th grade and what rising juniors can do to catch up if need be. 

Here is what I discuss in this episode:

0:03:10 Artificial deadline
0:04:50 Not too late for rising juniors
0:05:50 Basics of 9th and 10th grade
0:09:00 Where do I stand?
0:10:44 Extracurricular activities
0:13:45 Leadership
0:15:05 Summers
0:18:10 SAT or ACT
0:19:37 Summary remarks
