Sign up for your favorite schools during the first registration period for the best chance of getting into your top choices.

Tip: Send in your form (see a sample) even if you miss the first-round deadline. You have a lesser chance of getting into your first choice, but if you don't send it in at all, you will be assigned to a school by a computer.

Note: TBA = To Be Announced
