In four days, I will need to have all my ducks in a row vis-a-vis college. I’m applying Early Decision and the deadline is November 15. My teacher recommenders haven’t yet finished (started?) my letters, but on the bright side, my school sent out the required secondary school information. For my part, I am still working on an essay or two – including the main Common App essay – but I think I’m 99% done with that. Pending another read-through or two, I think I will be ready to submit the entire package.
Being ready to submit everything doesn’t change my trepidation. In exactly thirty-three days I will know the result of this application.
