It’s your first day of high school, and while the graduation date might seem far, it really isn’t. As you go through your years in high school, you start to hear the word “college” more often and the biggest decision of your educational career has to be made soon: Figuring out where to go to college.
We’ve all been in that situation—but we’re here to tell you that, if you follow these steps, you’ll be able to make the best decision possible when it comes tochoosing the right college.
It’s really critical that you begin your college planning before your senior starts because application deadlines can fly by and you might have to take a break from college for a semester or quarter (depending on the school). Not only that, but the National Center for Education Statistics reported that there is a decrease of 30% in four-year program enrollment of students who took a break from school for a year after graduating high school. Ideally, the sooner you start planning for college in your high school years, the better—but it’s recommended to start planning during your Junior year. Starting to plan soon will allow you to properly plan your path to college.
Never Give Up
You may go through difficult times with classes, but don’t let that discourage you from your end goal of obtaining your Bachelor’s degree. Let the motivation of being able to earn about $1 million more than someone without a Bachelor’s degree motivate you to complete your education. If you want to continue after obtaining it, there are plenty of options to further your education by applying to a Graduate program. Remember that you went through all the time and effort to choose the perfect college—you can’t let it go to waste. If you feel like you’re having a hard time with a class, talk to student support services or one of your college counselors to see if there are any tutoring services available on campus.
