Students should be thinking about applying to the schools they are interested in attending. As part of that effort, seniors need to contact the admissions office and financial aid offices at those schools, or visit their websites, to request all required forms. It’s important to pay close attention to deadlines. In addition, students should plan to visit campuses before committing to schools in order to find a good fit.
