It's only June, and several high school juniors have yet to finish their junior year. However, the 2017-2018 college admissions cycle is almost upon us! We're less than two months away from the release of this year's Common Application and essay prompts have previously been announced to the public (link to this year's prompts here: https://goo.gl/WXZVBt).
For rising seniors, this summer is of great importance. Not only must you continue to build a well-rounded profile (internships, sports, music, volunteering, etc.), but also the level of effort you put into your applications this summer will determine how "relaxed" you can be as you apply to direct med programs during your first semester of senior year.
If you're looking for advice on the application process, feel free to reach out to us! Our advisors are all current or former direct med program students, and thus they have firsthand experience with the admissions process. We'd love to guide you as you begin brainstorming your personal statements or ranking your activities on Common App. Fill out an interest form or email us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org!
