Senior year tips?
It’s my last year of high school and I’m beginning to seriously look into colleges. My previous years were not too hot, any suggestions and helpful tips to do better for college applications?
First, have you identified colleges you may be interested in attending? After that you have to look at your GPA and test scores and see how they compare. There are so many colleges which do not require a 4.0 for entrance. There are also many that are test-optional. If you have a compelling story about why your academics were not the best, be sure to address it in your applications. However, you may also benefit by attending community college. This would allow you to strengthen whatever gaps you have in your academic record as well as save money. With community college under your belt, you would then transfer to a 4-year college. Good luck!
Ask all the questions to as many as possible. Don't be afraid to branch out to things that may not make sense. Also have fun. Listen, You'll never get this back. Focus but have fun and put as much energy as you can into this it will shape the rest of your future!
