Organize for college

October 6, 2009


Applying for college? Here’s some advice from the book “Get Into College” (Hundreds of Heads Books,, $17.95), straight from people who’ve done it:

Make a box or dedicate a desk drawer to college admissions materials.

Label a manila folder for each school to which you plan to apply. Use it to hold:

• All snail mail and brochures the school sends

• Important names and contact information

• Printed e-mail correspondence you have with a school

• A list of all deadlines and required essays.

• Financial aid forms

On a large wall calendar write:

• Actual deadlines for all schools and sections of the applications

• Personal deadlines (weeks before the actual ones) to spread out your work.
