Winter is a great time to get  started on completion of required testing-SAT/ACT/SAT II.  Admissions requirements are different for each school.  Take time now to understand what you will need to complete an application to every school in which you are interested.  For recruiting purposes it is best if you can have all required testing done by the end of your junior year.  It makes a coach’s job much easier if you can submit all of your academic information at the end of junior year rather than making them have to wait until fall of senior year.
