Hello everyone. New here. I signed up today because we are on the brink of starting this whole college process. My daughter is currently a high school junior, and the colleges she wants to go apply to have due dates in November. It seems like it's far away, but I know it will be here before I know it. We are located in So Cal, and she would like to attend one of the UC schools down here. My preperations so far have been minimal. I've bookedmarked future application site she will need, and looked for private scholarship opportunities. I'm a college graduate, so I have talked to her about the process a bit and given her a heads up on what to possibly expect. She is communicating with me about opportunities her high school is presenting to her. My goal for registering on this site is to talk to other parents going through this for their children and to compare as many notes as possible.
