The best advice I can give any student heading into the college admissions process is to read much and read often.
Chances are, you haven't read much of the printed word this summer. Now that it's August, it's the perfect time to pick up a book or a copy of the Times, or even check out a savvy pundit's blog.
Reading helps you brush up on skills you'll need for essay writing and the SAT:
- Critical reading & reading comprehension
- Grammar & usage
Besides improving these skills, reading helps you become a more well-rounded, informed, and conversant applicant.
