September to December

  • Go to university sessions and career fairs that are happening at your high school.
  • Go to open house events at universities you’re interested in attending.
  • Take advantage of early admission deadlines if you can (universities will look at your Grade 11 marks to make a decision).
  • During the holiday break, sit down with your family to discuss what you’ve learned about university, any offers you have received, and work on creating a shortlist of just a few universities you’re seriously considering.
  • Make another appointment with your guidance counsellor to keep up on how you’re doing.
