Hailey’s Answer

I am glad that you are ready to work hard! Nandini says it all! I want to drop some sidenotes in addition to that. Besides good GPAs and SAT scores, extracurriculum is also important. You can try to pick one or two extracurriculum like sports or leadership roles if you can manage to keep a decent GPA. Although GPA is important, don't put yourself down if you don't get a good grade in one class. Sometimes class grade doesn't reflect what you are not capable of.

If you don't like the colleges that accept you for some reason, community college is another option. You can complete some college prerequisites there and then transfer to a 4-year college. Again you have to maintain a decent GPA.

Find your passion, work hard, and never give up! Wish you a bright future!

Nandini’s Answer

Hello Gino,

I am so excited for you! Going by your excited tone, I am sure you will do very well in college.

Before you join any college, you will have to apply for and get accepted to attend your college of choice within your field of interest. Pre-requisites for colleges vary according to which college you choose. Broadly speaking, most colleges focus on your average GPAs, SATs, your college essay on what motivates you and why you want to attend college among other things. I would advice you to look up various college websites to get more info.

The second part of my answer is about what you want to learn in college.

1. What are you fields of interests? I would go back to a year or two and think about what still interests you. Whatever you choose for your college, you will be stuck studying that subject for a couple years - so I would pick something that you are genuinely interested in
2. Do you envision a future in that field - Take a reality check. Do you see yourself getting a job in your field of interest and supporting yourself and your family with that income?
3. Affordability - Are there good colleges that can offer your field of study with affordable tuition?
4. Lastly, talk to some of your teachers and guidance counselors. Sometimes, they see things that we don't and might have more options for you.

Hope my answers help you out. Have a great rest of your day!
Thank you comment icon Nandini, thank you! Gino
