Underclassmen: What do I need to focus on in my second semester?



Now that your first semester is under your belt, it is tempting to take it easy during your second semester. Why does it matter if some of my grades slip this semester?  

What You Do Now Matters 

Colleges are going to ask the following questions of you: 

  1. Did you challenge yourself?  Did you take the hardest classes you could! 
  2. Did you get the best grades you could?  This includes both first and second semester. 
  3. What did you do extra in your classes?  Are you contributing to the class?  Will your teachers discuss your contributions in your recommendations? 

Finish Strong 

Keep your grades up and your enthusiasm going as you start in your spring semester.  You will be glad you did! 

Take Action
