Ms. White - Room 105
Senior Check List:
Being admitted to college has become increasingly competitive. It is important to prepare and package yourself so that you are able to compete. It is suggested that you develop a college portfolio. The portfolio can be used to apply for college as well as seeking employment. This is an excellent way to self-assess, document and reflect on your work and professional development.

The portfolio should consist of:
one (1) cover letter, one (1) resume, three (3)letters of recommendation and one (1) essay.

If you need more information or assistance, please feel free to see me in the CAP office in room 105.

During the past year I have noticed that many students are accepted to out-of-state colleges only to find them unaffordable once they receive their Financial Aid packages. As a result, there is an increasing number of students who decide to attend Universities in Florida. There are still affordable colleges for middle and low income students. Princeton Review has done some research on colleges and their affordability. To find out more information visit http://www.princetonreview.com/college/research/bestvalue/default.asp . When you find a college, go to the information and click on Best Value College.
