PUNS for Educated MindsI tried to catch some fog. I mist.
Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.
I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me. I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. I can’t put it down.
I didn’t like my beard at first. Then it grew on me. Broken pencils are pointless.
I used to be a banker, but then lost interest. I took a job at a bakery because I kneaded dough. Velcro – what a rip off!
Noah’s Ark Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah’s Ark:One: Don’t miss the boat.
Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four: Stay fit. When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. Five: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six: Build your future on high ground. Seven: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Eight: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. Nine: When you’re stressed, float awhile.
Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. Eleven: No matter the storm, when you are with god, there’s always a rainbow waiting.

Seniors: It's not too late to apply to college.
March 15 is the application deadline for most colleges, with accepted students making their decisions and submitting their deposits by May 1. But did you know that there are hundreds of colleges and universities that accept applications and admit students until the start of the fall semester? These students are those who might have missed the standard application deadlines, were not accepted into their first- or second-choice colleges, or needed to raise their grades their last semester in high school to qualify for higher-level schools. Schools that accept applications after the typical stop date of March 15 are known as “Late Deadline” or “Late Application” schools. You will still need to meet application requirements (GPA, SAT/ACT scores, etc.), but there are many great opportunities at these “Late Application” schools. One drawback: the later you apply, the harder it will be to land institution-awarded scholarships and financial aid
Ways to discover “Late Deadline” schools.1. Ask the Admissions Office at a particular college 2. Checkout NACAC Space Availability Survey 3. Use the Common Application’s Search Tools 4. Peruse Peterson’s List of Late Deadline Schools 5. Use the College Board’s College Match Maker Tool 6. Don’t forget Public Universities and Community Colleges

***There is the assumption that all current subscribers to the College Impressions Newsletter will maintain their subscription through the school year 2014 – 2015. This assumption exists because the address files will be set up for next years (2015 – 2016) Email & U.S. Mailing during the late spring, early summer of 2015. This may seem presumptuous but the organization of the mailing files is an arduous task which will take a great deal of time and it is a task that just doesn’t lend itself to a last minute push.
If your school system would prefer to be billed prior to July, 2015 then please drop a note to that effect and you will be billed before July 1, 2015. I realize that many school systems are in financial distress and I do not want the College Impressions Newsletter to add to the financial woes of a system or the lack of financial support to a guidance department. The information contained in each newsletter is information which parents and prospective college applicants need and should possess. The circulation of information aspect of guidance is very important to the overall mission of guidance and College Impressions will do whatever it is able to help each guidance department fulfill its mission to its students and their parents.
*The May issue of the College Impressions Newsletter will arrive during or after the second week of April. Should a
subscriber need the May CI Newsletter information earlier, by all means Email me and I’ll send what I have prepared at the time of your request.
