Additional Resources for the 2020-2021 School Year.
The college application process can be overwhelming, and even more so this year, when everything is different. Your first resournce at Lincoln is your counselor. As your college coordinator this year, my goal is to help Lincoln Seniors navigate this process with a minimum of stress and anxiety. Together we can figure out your best strategy for applying to college, develop a timeline and work on your personal essays. If you have any questions, please contact me, Amy Loy, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you are undecided about going to college or want to go out of state or out of the country, we can set up a google meet and figure it out together.
