Getting into college is no simple task and the application process can be pretty daunting. Although this article won’t talk about the application process directly, it’ll talk about things you can do in high school to help get you into the college of your dreams. Following just a few of these four different steps will help you to easily have all the answers to your applications and not be scrambling to find the solutions to every question.
- Join at least two great clubs. Joining different clubs is not just about college, but it will help you get through high school. Finding people you have things in common with can help you to discover what you love in life and help you complete your application. Unconventionally a club may be where you find the answer to what inspires you in life or what was a major event that hit you hard during your time in school. Clubs are a simple and effective way to make friends, learn new things, and garner some great college application question answers.
- Student Government. I myself was President of the Student Body, but I didn’t do it because I wanted something on my application. I did it because I thought I could make a real change for the better at my school, and happily I did. The point of the story or idea is that student government is great for the application, but it also gives you a taste of the real world. Being able to say you had to learn to manage money and negotiate results will really help you to focus yourself and in turn your application.
- Good Grades. This one is something that most people would say duh, but I’m going to include it anyway. Grades are very important to an application, but not because they are how you did in school but because they show that you are the type of person that can budget your time, learn when you need to, and have fun when you want to. Doing well isn’t just about showing your smart but it alludes to so many other qualities in your character as well.
- Get a Job or Internship. You may be really busy but you have to remember that school is just a part of your life during the day and that life will not just be about school. In order to get to the part of life that is a job you have to know what you want to do, and a job or internship can really help you figure out what you do and don’t want to do when you finish college.
Thus these four things may seem simple at first but implementing them in your high school regiment can help you to get into college with ease. This question was specifically asked by more than ten different people, and hopefully, this answer can help you out. If you need more on getting into college stay tuned in the coming days. Till then Good Luck Nickel-ers.
