From there click on 'colleges I'm applying to'. This tab should list all the colleges that you are submitting applications to (if not, please go ahead and update that).  When you start receiving your letters of acceptance you can update each college decision (ie. accepted, denied, deferred).
Finally, once you have committed to your college of choice, decorate your college pennant in the Counseling Hallway. Every Senior has one with his or her name on it! Also, pick a day to wear your college attire and visit your counselor for a picture to include with your decorated pennant!
