May 1 is college decision day. Make sure to commit to the college you are planning to attend. Stop by the college center to get help from Ms. Pinedo or some of the college peer counselors  to review your financial aid offer letters. This is important because it can make it easier for you to decide which college will support you the most financially.

Ms. Pinedo, with the help from others, has a special event to celebrate students’ college decisions on May 3. Seniors will be excused to leave early from their fourth period to attend this event. There will be popcorn and snow cones, as well as giant games like Connect 4, Jenga, and cup pong.
Once you decide on which school you will be attending, fill out the transcript request form in schoology so that Ms. Pinedo could send your transcript to that college.

If you need some extra help on deciding which college to attend, here is some advice from a few college peer counselors.
Arianna Ortiz, SAS senior, said, “I would suggest to look at all aspects. For instance, your major and what the school has to offer, financial aid, the campus, and how you like the atmosphere. You can also make a pro and con list and follow your instinct.”

Andrea Alvarez, SAS senior, said “Well first, sit down with a college counselor. They’ll help you understand your financial aid package and what exactly the school wants from you. Try to visit the colleges if you can and just trust your gut. You’re going to be spending the next four years there and don’t want to dread going to classes everyday.”
