The deadline for CUNY Fall 2011 Admissions was February 1, 2011.  Many students have applied after the deadline, giving them a much slimmer chance of getting into the top college of their choice.  Unfortunately many of these students will have their plans disrupted and it could have been prevented by taking 20-30 minutes one day in the months preceding the deadline to fill out the simple application.  DO NOT become one of these people.  You work hard as a student at LaGuardia and you owe it to yourself to give yourself the best shot at college admissions.  We offer the following advice:  

"Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted." - Sun Tzu, The Art of War

In the battlefield of college admissions, this simply means to fill out your college applications EARLY.  It is much less stressful that way.

"If the leader is filled with high ambition and if he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them in spite of all obstacles." - Clausewitz, On War

 Life has a way of throwing all sorts of curves and twists into the mix.  Often things like writing a paper, researching colleges, or filling out applications are the last things you may want to do, but you must keep moving forward.  This is cliche' by now, but very true.

This is the ultimate goal to strive for NOW as opposed to LATER :
