* Congratulations to those of you who were accepted for admission to your colleges of choice. If you received a "Deferred" decision from your top school, you will need to: 1) contact the admission officer at that school by phone 2) follow up with an email or cover letter, thanking them first, then reaffirming your interest in admission to the school. Ask them what else you need to do. Then let them know that you will definitely be attending if and when you are officially admitted. Appeals are not allowed on a deferred decision, because it is technically not a decision.... which has been deferred to a later date upon receiving additional supporting information such as 7th semester grades, etc...A "Denied" decision may be appealed through the college's appeal process...

* Juniors and their parents: Opportunities for admission are often directly related to student academic performance and proper early preparation. Your counselor can be a good resource for you. Take a look at the "Junior to do list" for general guidelines. www.ndpma.org/drupal/webfm_send/4725. Helpful links and information regarding college and ACT preparation have been posted on Naviance. Students will be receiving additional information during their individual interviews with their counselor. Parents who wish to learn more about Naviance and the college application process are certainly always welcome to set up an appointment with their students assigned counselor for a private lesson. Contact the counseling secretary Sheri Yanik to set up an appointment at 248-373-9649.
* The college application process can be overwhelming and confusing especially to first time Junior parents. Come find out what colleges and your students are not telling you about their applications. We are here to help! The Counselors are continuing to make themselves available for small group meetings. Individual appointments are also available. Parents who would like some information and guidance on the application process, Naviance, Scholarship and financial aid info, would like some specific questions answered, or just would like to get to know their student's counselor a little better, should contact Mrs. Yanik in the counseling office at 248-373-9649 to check on meeting availability. Having smaller groups of parents allows us to provide a more personal atmosphere and allow plenty of opportunity to have your questions answered.
Juniors and Sophomores... Many universities offer some sort of pre-college summer camps, providing students with an opportunity to explore various career fields and develop leadership skills. Consider doing a summer camp, job shadowing, internship, or part time job in the career field of your interest. This experience may make you more desirable to college admission representatives.
