Rising Seniors--Ready to Start Applying?

<p>When are you guys starting apps? I'm pretty much going to try to put this off as long as practical. This is going to suck.</p>

<p>Already started the essay and recs.</p>

<p>Already started the essays? Should I just look at the schools' applications and see what to write about? I was always confused on this. Do they use the same ones every year?</p>

<p>I have not yet picked a main-essay topic.</p>

<p>I have to decide if I'm doing Early Action or not. Also, when would you start getting recs? I don't think doing it at the end of a long school year would be the best idea, but I don't want to wait until it's too late</p>

<p>Teachers prefer them over the summer. Gives them a ridiculous amount of time to do it, and they'll appreciate your time management skills.</p>

<p>Yeah I'm trying to decide what to write about...</p>

<p>I was going to start on my essays/apps sometime in the middle of this summer.</p>

<p>I think I'm going to visit the schools first and then decide if i'll apply there or not. So I'll probably start in August. I'm scared. :(</p>

<p>um, no. 10char.</p>

<p>o.o ugh apps! It's going to suck! I think some UC schools are offering essay workshops for free (?) </p>

<p>I need to start my essay and stuff in the summer!</p>

<p>Starting my essays in July.</p>

<p>No, the whole process seems daunting.</p>

<p>Well, I've started looking at the common app essays and thinking about what to write about. I have a very strong tendency to procrastinate, and I'm going to try to avoid that as much as possible.</p>

<p>I've already started outlining my essays. Going to ask for recs before school ends/during the summer/first week of school.</p>

<p>I'm so scared but I don't have my hopes too high b/c I'm already anticipating rejection.</p>

<p>I'm waiting on my June SAT scores..if I still don't like it I'm going to retake once more in the fall. (taking them is so painful!).</p>

<p>Haha same. I'm going to try to get a good start on my essays before school starts back up because when it does, I know I'm going to be swamped with school work</p>

<p>I already have an idea for my essays (about how my life has changed from a parent who committed suicide and one of my EC: Color guard/winter guard) and I already asked the teachers if they would write a Rec for me (which how does that work?), I'm taking my ACT's this week and I plan on ED for one of the schools which I got to go to my career center and ask for some help.</p>

<p>Outlining the essays. Gonna have a headstart.</p>

<p>My teachers are writing my recs over the summer! I plan on starting the common app and essays in August</p>

<p>Haha, no. I'm relaxing for awhile, then maybe I'll worry about them. I am trying to come up with essay ideas, but that's about it.</p>
