    I will be applying as a college student this year and I have a question about who submits the Candidate Academic Information. I would think it would be my college counselor from high school but I'm not 100% sure. No one at the college I will be attending would know me well enough to complete it as a don't get an adviser 1st semester and they also wouldn't have anything to base it of off (grades, extra curriculars, etc).

    IrishDancer,

    I applied as a college student for the Class of 2014. I did have my HS Guidance Counselor fill out the Candidate Academic Information as well as verify my Candidate Activities Record. Make sure to include your anticipated college schedule where the application asks for it, and be sure to follow up by sending your college transcripts as soon as they are available.

    If you have any more questions about applying from college, feel free to PM me (before July 1st!).

    Good Luck!!

    I would check with your RD. I know that, for teacher recs, they want college profs, even if they don't know you well. Thus, I wouldn't assume they want a h.s. guidance counselor. Definitely check with the RD to make sure you do what they want you to do.

    I think it would be a good idea to double check with your regional director. They shouldn't be too busy right now with the Class of 2014 all wrapped up and the Class of 2015 barely started, so this might also be a good opportunity to ask your regional director what areas of your application you need to improve the most (i.e. what held you back from getting an appointment this year).

    For the Class of 2014, admissions did not even review applications from college until first semester grades were received (late January), so you do have plenty of time to get to know your college professors before you need the recs submitted.

    Again, I would double check that this will also be true for the Class of 2015. :thumb:
