Now that your senior year is over, you think: yes, summer is here!! Well, think again.
You overcame a major step, you are done with the studies, done with assignments, done with exams, but you are not yet done, now that all of this is behind you, you need to think about what you will do for the next chapter of your life: higher education.
You probably have taught about what you want to do for the next year, but, did you work on it?
A lot of things to take care of, and the sooner you handle them, the easier it will be for you to deal with the changes you will undertake from now on.
Choosing your program/university
You most likely have already talked yourself into a specific university, you may have already been accepted, but now you need to decide and tick boxes in your check list, now you have to be clear and settle down on a choice. The reason is that from this decision you will be able to make other related decisions.
Settle down in your new environment
With the great number of choices you have, you have the possibility to go wherever you want, abroad maybe? or in another city, you need to take care of visa modalities, dealing with your accommodation, talking budget, reach out to students that enrolled in your same program, this will help you skip the homesickness rapidly, already knowing the environment where you will be in the next years.
You have to also take care of any paperwork you have pending during this time. In order to not have to deal with them during your studies period, here we talk about completing your file and sending it to the university if not already done, if you have anything pending it is now that you should take care of it. Of course, you may have other things to take care of, personal things, and once you are done you can enjoy your time awaiting for your next chapter to start.
