      • Some of the questions might be a repeat of the previous Reflections Worksheet activity or even from last year. Don’t feel obligated to answer it if everyone’s already on the same page 
    • If you have free time, feel free to peruse through the rest of the packet. You might find some of the other content interesting and helpful throughout the college application process.
