Senior Profile for the Common Application
Complete your Senior Profile prior to Senior year (ideal time would be the summer before Senior year).
The Senior Profile helps your counselor prepare your letter of recommendation. This is your chance to brag about yourself. The more you share about yourself, your experiences/achievements/awards/ accomplishments the BETTER. Don't be afraid to brag about yourself, tell us what makes you unique.
Plan to meet with your counselor in May of your Junior year to review senior profile expectations, requirements, deadlines, etc. Schedule a meeting with your counselor in September to go over your Senior Profile, discuss common app logistics, deadlines (especially if you are applying early) If time permits, try to schedule a follow-up meeting with your counselor.
