College Connections, Issue 5

Happy New Year! The January issue of the College Connections Newsletter has links to some great articles for all high school students about excelling in their public speaking and learning to be coachable along with information about what a gap year is and how to make the most of it. 

For parents of 9th-11thgrade students, there is an article about how to interpret PSAT scores. If the article leaves you with more questions than answers, I invite you to attend a free PSAT seminar this Sunday, January 12th at NCSU hosted by our friends at Collegewise. This one-hour seminar will help you better decipher and understand what your PSAT score is telling you. 

Already, 39 seniors have received at least one offer of admission from a college they have applied to. NCSU and UNC-Chapel Hill will release there early action decisions at the end of this month and we look forward to celebrating with more students. Seniors, don’t forget to update Naviance with your admissions decisions!
