Weekly College Update

Dear Bulldogs, Thunderbirds, Snow Leopards, and Huskies,

Happy February! I am excited to share that over HALF of Summit seniors have now received college acceptances! Considering that many colleges do not release admissions decisions until March and April, your class is in great shape. You’ve been sharing all this good news with your mentors, and please continue to do that. However, we want to make sure we also officially track your acceptances in Naviance, and that’s where we could use your help.

This week’s focus is updating Naviance.

Naviance is an incredible tool. We use it for so many things-- we send documents like letters of recommendation and transcripts directly to your colleges, we can run reports of who applied to which schools, and we can track long term data that helps us predict what GPA and test score it will take to get into specific colleges. In order for all of this to be as effective as possible, we need Naviance to be accurate and updated by you!

So, take a few minutes this week to review this powerpoint and update Naviance. Be sure to:

  • update your college list by removing or adding schools if necessary

  • edit your results as you find out if you were accepted, waitlisted, or denied

  • indicate the school you’re planning to attend next year when you make your decision

By doing these simple updates, you will ensure that we have the most accurate information when we need to send documents to colleges. Plus, you help us better predict admissions outcomes for future Summit students!
