MASON CITY, IA – We’re getting closer to the end of the school year and some high school seniors are becoming more wary of their futures.
April is known as “Judgement Month” that’s when students looking to go to college start getting those acceptance and sometimes rejection letters.
At this point, most students know where they’ll be headed next fall.
Local high school counselors say its important for students to not put all their eggs in one basket.

Mason City High School Counselor Karla Wymore said, “Hopefully they have a fall back plan and if they don’t we just kind of work through why they didn’t get in. We can certainly call an admissions office and say why was this student not admitted, are there criteria they didn’t meet or where did they fall short? To try and help that student know why they weren’t accepted into that institution.”
Counselors say this is the time of year when they work with students in the Junior class and make sure they’re thinking ahead for their futures.
