Even thinking about applying for college can be stressful. However, I cannot stress how important it is to START EARLY. Think about what you might want to do with your life as soon as you enter high school, but don't worry about it too much, you WILL figure it out. Apply to colleges early in your senior year. But keep in mind- Early Decision is binding, meaning if you are accepted, you will attend, while Early Action just means you are on top of things. Most deadlines are around November 1st, so keep an eye out. Apply for scholarships. Nowadays, college is practically unaffordable. Earning high grades and a high SAT/ACT score will help you earn scholarships/grants that can help ease this burden both from colleges, and outside scholarships.
