When you're a freshman in high school you aren't thinking about college, or at least I wasn't, I didn't even think about it until junior year. BUT BUT BUT theres so many things you can do even your freshman year to prep for college.
I am NOT talking GPA, thats the obvious statement. But things that don't cross your mind at first, like how big your ACT really is, how many times should you really take it? or How are you gonna pay for the college you want to go to?

Thats all here.

Look under the different posts for stuff on
scholarships
act/sat test taking tips
applying to colleges
and more :]
