Can I get into a good school if I did average in my freshman year?
I'm not planning on going to any super exclusive university like Cornell or Yale. My dream school is NYU but, last I checked, only around 30% of applicants get accepted. I didn't do as well as I could've my freshman year, but so far, my sophomore year has been nothing but A's and high B's. Is it possible for me to get into a school like NYU even if I didn't do so well in my freshman year> #college #school #college-application #grades
It really does not matter what school you attend, as the most important factors are how well you do with the school work, which is an indication to an employer about what kind of employee you will be, and the effort that you put forth in your networking to set up networking connections that will help you throughout your education/career journey.

Here are some good tips on reducing costs in college:
Schools are looking for consistency of performance during high school and a career focus. The most important thing that you can do is to get to know yourself to develop a career focus and then talk to people n person face to facd who are doing what you think that you might want to do so that you can see what they do, how they got there, and what suggestions that they might have.
Ken recommends the following next steps:
when you are applying for colleges, you should apply to 1-2 dream schools, 1-3 acceptable schools, and 1-3 safe schools you know you can get into. If you are trying to get into a specific school, make sure you visit the school to do a college tour, excel in your academic for the rest of the high school years, find a school faculty member that can write a recommendation letters for you who had a great relationship with you, and do other extra curricular activities you are interested in that will set you apart from other students. As long as you can speak on your mistakes from freshmen year, show an interest in why this one particular school is the right School for you with academics to support your interest will open the doors for you!
