Additional Tips for College Application Process

    • Create an email account just for college-related communication.
    • Document and save all application account usernames and passwords, and all essays.
    • Use your legal name (needs to match your ETHS high school transcript). 
    • You may also need to provide your counselor’s name, e-mail address, phone number, and fax number.
    • If you ask a teacher for a letter of recommendation, give the teacher information about yourself. You may choose to do so using the Teacher Recommendation Information Form.
    • Intended Major:  If you have a major, great!  If not, do not leave this blank.  Indicate undecided or undeclared.  Some schools will have their own special designation, such as general studies. 
    • Be sure to consult with the college about the appropriateness of any changes to your senior schedule. Your counselor is a great resource to help you with this.
    • Interviews are generally not a required part of the application process. However, if you are offered an opportunity to do an interview with a college, take it. Interviews can be offered on campus (during a visit) or locally by an admissions representative or alumnus in our area.
    • Remember that participation in blogs, chat rooms, forums and social media (such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and SnapChat) are never truly private.  Inappropriate content may come back to haunt you.
