<p>I'm a hs junior right now, and I'm completely clueless on applying to colleges. If you guys can give me any tips or anything it would be really helpful.</p>
<p>A few things that just really confuse me:
1. What is the common application and do all colleges take it?
2. Do I only apply in the summer?
3. Do colleges look at whether or not you passed your AP exams?
4. Is the best time to apply over the summer?
5. And anything about scholarships.
6. Do colleges even look at senior year grades?</p>
