College Affects Everyone
College affects everyone. This is one of those crossroads in your life, where you can decide what you want to do and really go into a career. You can make this time as fun and exciting as you like because your away from your parents, you can control your own destiny and all while making the best of your life. You can't forget though that your there to get a good education. So really the most important thing is your education. This affects students because they need to prepare early because you have to do so many things. I believe that you should look early because some colleges have some extra requirements that you have to complete in High School. For example, The Wharton School of Business requires you to take calculus while in High School. So keep to your studies.
If you want to get into an Ivy League School it doesn't happen over night. You have to prepair earily to get into this type of school. To get into a school like this you have to take the most rigorous curriculum offered by your High School, get good grades, and most of all stand out. "Which we don't like it when students don't take interest in college until they are Seniors in High School." Quoted from www.quintcareers.com. So when you are applying for college it is best to look early because then you can prepare for the problems that may a rise. When applying according to www.northwestern.edu it is best to have good grades because that is the base of your application. Also, no matter what happens studies come first because that's your base. Then, if you believe that you can juggle school with extra-curriculars you should do those and put them on your resume so colleges know that you stand out. Finally, you should see how much college costs before applying and also see if you have any money set aside for your education.
As I stated earlier money is a key factor when choosing a school. So if you have a school that is out of your price range you have some options to chose from. You can either apply for a scholarship, get a loan or pay for it yourself. You really need not worry about this too much if you can either get a loan or get a scholarship. Also, around this time you really need to start questioning yourself and what you want to be when your older. If you do this it makes finding a college less of a hassle. Another thing is that when your in High School you should really start to manage your time so you can balance work and play well in college. As you can see college affects a lot of the choices that we make in High School and even grade school.
