If only the end of summer vacation corresponded with the end of the summer season. Then, you’d have until September 22nd to relax without daily classes, homework, SAT prep, and college research. Does anyone else feel like school starts earlier every year? To help you get back into school mode (sorry), the Magoosh Marketing Team […]
This past week I was grabbing a smoothie with several soon-to-be seniors (boy, do I love unintentional alliteration). Naturally, the topic of school came into conversation and, upon hearing their array of concerns, I was inspired to come up with this. So voila! Here is an exceptionally lengthy and most certainly over-kill list of what I wish I’d known (in no particular order) before starting twelfth grade.
Most students already know that the SAT Reasoning test is awaiting them long before they make it to their junior/senior year.

There’s definitely some fear and anxiety that […]
As consumed by finals as you may be (or may not be, if you’re an intelligent senior… I am not one of those), you can start finding solace in the fact that the end is near. I’m talking breakfasts at 11:00 a.m. Afternoons by the beach. Evenings catching up on every Netflix movie that you somehow haven’t seen yet. Summer 2015, here we come!
With just under two weeks of high school left, I thought it would be apt to reflect on the past school year. It definitely did not go as I thought it would. There were many twists and turns along the way. But hopefully I can help some of you younger students so that you know […]
These ten quick hints will help make the application process as stress-free as possible. 1. Create a spreadsheet that includes all of your school choices and your “to do” list: Writing essays, keeing track of supplements, gathering transcripts (many schools use a service like parchment.com — I have found this service provides an easy and […]
