Summertime is the time

Summertime is great! Basking in the sun, swimming, enjoying time off from school, etc. But, realistically, summertime is never the time to slack off.

Most top colleges have added a question to their applications about what you did over the summer — and, you don’t need to be part of an adcom to know that they don’t want to hear about how you lounged around and shopped and partied!

Get an internship. Get a job. Do summer school. Travel. Do community service. Pick at least two or three things to do each summer during high school that you’ll be able to talk about in a short response on your application. Also, it might come in handy for interviews too.

What’s a top school? A name on the roster doesn’t cut it
