How to prepare for college as a senior in high school.
As the title says, I have just recently started my senior year at my high school. I understand that this is an important year and I am slightly panicked as I have no clue where to began my preparation for college. Most of my friends have already created college lists and writing their essays. My sat score is a decent 1750 and my GPA is 3.6. The problem is I'm not sure where I can get with this. In the future I want to become a security analyst, having looked into this a bit, I'm not exactly sure where to start with this either. I want to play to UCI, but money is really tight and I cant help but wondering if I even have a chance. I am planning to retake the SAT again asap and move on from there. I would really appreciate it, if someone could help me out. What to do, what to make sure I have done, basically a checklist. Thanks in advance.9 replies
