On Wednesday, students will go over college applications for UC and CSU colleges. There will also be chance for students to meet with a representative from a UC college and students will receive advice on how to answer personal insight questions for UC applications.

On Thursday, students will start working on their senior “brag sheet” and will also discuss applications for private and out-of-state schools. Also students will also learn effective ways to request counselor and teachers for recommendations.

According to the Captain’s Log, students should bring Chromebooks, pencils, pens, headsets, a copy of their high school transcript along with a water bottle to each session.
