Some thoughts for juniors to ponder...
Please remember that we are asking for you to do 15 minutes of college-related work per night in order to establish an updated college list in the Cialfo shortlist of 12-15 universities by June 5. You are left to choose how you would like to spend that time yourself, but here are some things to consider for this week. Please read through the following:
