October begins the process when seniors prepare to tackle college applications, whether they are applying for Early Decision, Early Action or Regular Decision.

Early Decision is a binding process in which the applicant agrees to withhold all other college offers and attend that university if accepted. This is typically a student’s top school.  Early action in a non-binding process where the applicant applies on an earlier deadline. Regular Decision is a non-binding process in which applicants are considered in the general application pool.  

Basically, the majority of the senior class is completely stressed with the process of balancing school work along with applying to colleges of their choice.

Q: What is the Common Application?

A: “The Common App is and application that you can send to multiple schools with one transcript, one essay and only filling out the information once,” senior Evelyn Philbrick said.

Q: What is the most important factor when applying to colleges? Academically and character wise?

A: “I think the most important thing is obviously grades, but it’s for them to see that you are involved not just in school, but that you are also doing community service and stuff outside of school,” senior Lily Moen said.

Q: What are some factors that helped you pick your top college?

A: “ I choose my college based on if they have the major I want, if the environment is good, such as the people, and if it’s a very involved community and if it has a lot of activities and clubs,” senior Alyssa Hibben said.
