ATTENTION SENIORS APPLYING TO COLLEGE! MAKE SURE YOU:
* Fill out a Brag Sheet
Give copies to all individuals writing you letters of recommendation & upload to Naviance
* Ask recommenders 10 SCHOOL days in advance for letters of recommendation
It takes time to write a quality letter
If the college does not provide an electronic recommendation option, please give your teacher recommender an addressed and stamped envelope to send directly to the college
* Send SAT/ACT scores directly through the CollegeBoard.org (for SAT's) and ACT.org (for ACT's) websites
NWL does not send any standardized test scores! It’s up to you to have them sent.
It can take several weeks to have test scores sent to schools so plan accordingly.
