What to do as a Junior 2021
Wondering what to do as a junior in January? Here is a summary.
Plan to study for and take the SAT and or ACT at least once in the spring. While many colleges were test-optional for seniors entering college in fall 2021, some will not be for juniors entering in fall 2022, so plan accordingly.
Keep your grades up. Your GPA is determined for many schools in your sophomore and junior years.
Begin looking for summer internships, jobs, or research opportunities now. It will require some research and possibly an essay. By looking now, you may get that coveted opportunity.
Find meaningful community service you can do now, even if it is online. Volunteer at a call center or write to the elderly who are in retirement homes. If you want to help out, there are plenty of opportunities.
Finally, ask for help from teachers, parents, or counselors if you find yourself falling behind. Don't wait until it's too late.
