So many holidays in May! For parents with young children, you may be thinking about May Day and celebrating with flowers. Moms of all ages are thinking about Mother's Day . Patriotic Parents are thinking about Memorial Day. But parents of seniors have a special day to remember, called the National Candidates Reply Deadline.
On May 1, high school seniors who have been offered college admission have to make their final decision. Most students have until that date to enroll in the University they have chosen, make a financial deposit, or formally accept admission in the college. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why seniors need to start college applications early in the fall! These decisions come LONG in advance, far before they actually leave home!
What does this mean to you?
Apply to college the first day of senior year.
Get admission decisions throughout the winter and early spring.
Give colleges your "final answer" before May 1.
Applying early is the single best thing you can do for college scholarships!
