Summer felt unprepared for the rigors of the college application process. In a blog for Ready WA, she writes, “I had no idea how time-consuming college applications are. Senior year is busy with wrapping up classes and trying to enjoy the final year of high school. Starting my college applications was a rude awakening. I had no idea how they worked, what the Common App was, or what to write about in my essays. … So while I was working on my applications I wrote a list of what I wish I knew.”
