It is important to keep track of your progress and keep an eye on the deadlines towards which we are working.
For this month, July, there are 4 priorities:
1- Required exams preparations (SAT/TOEFL): be informed of available test dates in your city/make use of available preparation materials online.*
2- Personal essay: it’s never too early to start reading about required personal + supplemental essays, and preparing your own. *
3- Application documents: Transcripts/Recommendations/etc.
4- University selection: start your research on universities/programs/degrees/etc. *
The two main required tests to apply to a U.S. university are SAT and TOEFL*, both of which are offered at specific times in testing centers. It is highly recommended that students check the dates/registration deadlines for these tests as early as possible. Keep in mind that test dates, fees, and reporting dates vary depending on the location.
