The Last Two Years of High School: Preparing for College


Latest Applications Open 2021:

     

The sooner you start preparing to go to college the better. Give yourself plenty of time to research different universities and majors and find out what the requirements are to pursue the field of study that interests you. Since many application deadlines are well in advance of the academic year, starting serious preparation in your junior year is not too soon.

Start Your Search

You should begin thinking about what you want to study and where you want to go in your junior year. Factors to keep in mind besides academics include cost, location and the culture of the college you are considering attending. Just like workplaces, colleges have different cultures, and you might be more comfortable on a rural or urban campus, one that is artier or more business-oriented. Would you be happier at a school where most students live on or near campus, or is a primarily commuter college fine with you? Do you want to mostly be around students in the 18-22 age range, or are you happy at a school that caters to nontraditional students? Be sure to also look into any areas that are particularly important to you. For example, if you really want a study abroad to be a component of your university experience, you might want to make sure this is a strength of the one you’ve chosen.

Most people have a dream university that may or may not be out of reach and a safe choice they know they can get into. You don’t need to waste time or money applying to dozens of schools, but you should have a good range of colleges to choose between.

How Will You Pay for It?

Many students take out student loans to borrow money for tuition. You may be eligible for a combination of federal and private student loans. To get federal loans, you should start by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which can also help you identify grants and loans. There may also be scholarships available, in amounts ranging from a few hundred dollars to your entire tuition. Your parents may also have put away money in a savings fund for you. Finally, you might get a work-study job on campus or a part-time off-campus job.

Many people make the mistake of looking on this as a make it or break it time. While it’s normal to feel some stress while you’re preparing, try to look on these two years as an opportunity to get ahead of the game by doing a lot of preparation. Many people end up pursuing a career that is different from what they study in college, or they work in one career for several years and then change careers one or more times. It’s great if you can get started on a path to success at a young age, but you can severely limit your growth if you convince yourself you have to figure out your entire career trajectory at the age of 17.
