College

Who's to say what would get me in? Should I do more extracurriculars? Take another AP class? Do something else outside of school? How the hell am I supposed to know?

also depends on what year you are and what kind of college you're<br />
striving for. If you want to go to college, period than just get good<br />
grades and you're set. If you want to go to a highly selective<br />
university then if you're a freshman, start joining organizations early<br />
(if you have time and can keep your grades up) that way you can earn<br />
exec positions later on which provide proof that you were actively<br />
involved in the organization and also show leadership qualities as well<br />
as the fact that people elected you to a position of authority. Be<br />
involved in multiple areas of life, the arts, a sport, the yearbook or<br />
newspaper...volunteering...honor societies...and take some college<br />
credit or AP courses and you'll be set :)<br />
<br />
oh yeah and study for the ACT or SAT, whichever you take.

Yes, and check out all the planning stuff at www.collegeboard.com, and go and see your college advisor at your school :D It also depends where you're aiming :)

Quality over quantity. DO what you love <br />
and it will show on your application :-)
