Do rigorous classes prepare you for the ACT, or will I need a prep class?

Do Honors/AP/College classes prepare you enough for the ACT, or will I need a prep class? I'm trying to figure out if I should try to fit an ACT Prep class into my schedule. Thanks! #college #student #nurse #nursing #classes #university #act #ap #rigorous #science #technology #engineering #math...

How do I find out what college is best for me if I don't know what I'm going to major in?

A good way to know which college is the best choice for you is to know what major you're going into. Since I am still unsure, I don't know whether or not the college I choose will end up being the best choice for my future career when I decide, help?

How do you get colleges to acknowledge you when there is a drop during your junior , but a major change your senior year?

How do you stay involved and still keep your grades up?

I worry about getting involved in too many groups and not having enough time for my school work. I'm not sure how to balance it all. #collegelife
