4 Most Important Things for Parents of Seniors

Dear Parents of Seniors,

I know how busy you are, so I'll keep this simple.

For scholarships, the most important thing is to DO THE APPLICATION NOW.  I often suggest that by January of senior year, if you haven't completed all your applications, that becomes your priority.  I suggest you put ALL other things on hold and do ONLY your applications.  It can make a huge difference financially to get them done as quickly as possible.  Often scholarship money is first come, first served. Many clients are already hearing about great scholarships - which means less money available for others that apply later.

The first most important thing for scholarships is to apply now.
The second most important thing is the application essay.
The third most important thing is the FAFSA.
The last is looking for outside scholarships.

If you need some help, I have some resources to get you going quickly.

#1 Applications: Real Fast College Applications
#2 Essays: College Application Essays -- a Primer for Parents
#3 FAFSA: Five Minute FAFSA
#4 Private Scholarships: College Scholarships for High School Credit

If you have done those things, this article will help you with the other things to do during senior year: 15 Point Senior Year Inspection Checklist

Just so you know, I realize life can get crazy, and I know this situation can happen to anyone.  I'm just hear to help - not judge.
