During the months of November and December, she recommends:

  • Having your official transcript sent to each program where you are applying. Getting your official transcripts sent is usually fairly simple process. Just contact your school's registrars office and find out what you need to do. In many cases, you can request your transcript by phone or online.

  • Completing applications for various sources of financial assistance. If you are applying for loans, fellowships, scholarships or other sources of aid, now is a good time to get those applications sent in.

  • Sending in you completed admissions applications. Review each application carefully to ensure that you have correctly included all the necessary information. Go over your admissions essay, statement of purpose to ensure that they look great and contain no spelling errors.

Always be sure to check with program admission advisors to avoid missing important deadlines!

While you're waiting to here back from the program where you applied, use the time to start preparing for any admissions interviews that you might need to complete.
