You should be thinking about college...
August 23, 2013
Summer is dwindling down and a new semester is on the horizon. So, you’re probably wondering: What should I be doing to prepare for college? Maybe not, but you should be!
Here are some suggestions of what high school students can do to prepare for college this September:
1. Start the college admissions process.
2. Register to take or re-take the SAT/ACT exams.
2. Schedule college visits.
Campuses are especially beautiful in the fall, plus you should always visit when students are present.
That means there’s no time like the present to see potential colleges, since everyone will be returning to campus for a new semester.
Make a list of colleges you’d like to visit and try to schedule them throughout the next few months.
Remember, seeing and experiencing a school is vastly different than researching it online!
3. Start out – and stay – in great academic shape.
As you’re working on college applications, you’ll want to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward – academically speaking.
Make a strategy on how you’ll approach this semester – and follow it.
Making a game plan helps ensure you’ll stay focused on achieving your best!
4. Start evaluating how you’ll pay for school.
If you start applying for scholarships now, it will be a lot easier to pay for school later!
