Dear Parents

  • Want to grab juicy university offers and receive priority considerations? Remember you must aim to submit all your university applications in November! You can always
    forward your updated December test scores to your universities once they become available or consider selecting them on the registration form to have your scores forwarded once released. Note: You can send your SAT/ACT test scores to 4 universities for free if you add them on your registration form, or within a week of testing.
  • The next best time to submit your application is within the coming week! DP2s, own the process and keep track of all university application deadlines so you do not miss
    any of them. Getting it done now frees you to prepare for your DP end of semester exams.
  • Financial Aid applications (CSS, FAFSA, ISFAA, COF) et cetera, must be submitted by the Financial Aid priority deadlines for each of your schools. DO NOT BE LATE FOR FREE MONEY! Especially if you really need it.
  • 19 November 2019 is the deadline to click “pay and send” to submit UK applications.
  • Applications to all University of California (UC) schools opened on 1 November 2019, and it requires you to write 4 essays.
  • Reporting SAT/ACT test scores: Also remember that the university application deadlines apply to your SAT and ACT test scores too. Not submitting your SAT ACT scores by the university’s deadlines renders your application incomplete. Your test scores must get to the university by the application deadline of the university. So ensure you make the payment on your College Board or ACT Inc. account with a credit/visa card for your test scores to be forwarded directly to your universities.  Remember
    not all universities accept rush score reporting.
