Don’t you just love the fall? The foliage is colorful, the air is brisk, and the crippling stress of college application deadlines are all around us.
Well, maybe the third one isn’t so great given November is prime time for many Early Decision and Early Action deadlines for colleges across the country. Even Juniata’s Early Decision deadline is November 15. Don’t worry though, our first Early Action deadline is December 1, so you have plenty of time to apply afterward.
With college application season in full swing, one question we consistently hear from prospective students in our admission office is:
“How do I get into Juniata?”(more…)
Can we just take a moment to give a huge round of applause to all the hardworking school counselors out there?
This year has been absolutely bonkers when it comes to getting students ready for college. As if applying to college wasn’t hard enough, COVID-19 put a huge wrench in the process. No, wait. I take that back, make that like 10 wrenches. Heck toss a screwdriver and a hammer in there too. Every year, standardized testing policies change, application deadlines get extended, and lists or requirements grow longer. But what stays consistent is the true dedication school counselors have to their students’ success.
If you’re a school counselor, thank you. I can’t even count how many calls I’ve had with you to advocate for your students that happen after school hours or even over the weekend. I can’t imagine how huge your caseload is, yet I always see you make time for your students. You field emails from stressed students and parents on Saturdays, and you assure them that colleges actually did receive your their scores even though they may have received an email saying we haven’t.(more…)
Wait, where did this year go? Like, actually. I can’t find it. I think I left it in 2019 somewhere. I feel like I just started reading applications a week ago, and now it’s half way through April. Many of you have already found your future home at Juniata, some of you are still deciding (Don’t worry, we’re still here!). You all have one thing in common. You all applied to Juniata. Did your journey look something like this?
