People often ask us when is the best time to start planning for college. We at College Docs believe that sophomore year can be the optimal time to begin to get focused on the college application process. You still have plenty of time to research the different types of college experiences that might be the best fit for your long–term goals. It is helpful to be aware of the specialized requirements of certain schools, such as language, science or AP requirements or portfolios for special programs. Some of the advantages of starting the process in sophomore year include:
- Allowing you to take advantage of summer enrichment programs
- Planning your academic curriculum for junior and senior years
- Trying out different extracurricular activities
- Planning for SATs and other standardized tests
We at College Docs are available to help you strategize for your individual college planning needs, at any point during your high school career. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 203 330-1852 to get started.
