<p>Go to your gc and ask her how you can apply for application fee waivers for all the colleges you are interested. if you are poor, they are free.
You need to fill out FAFSA so you can get assistance/money for college.
You need to study to get your gpa up-that is crucial.
You need to start figuring out what colleges and what major you want.
Can you afford OOS universities?
How much money will your mother give you for school if you can't get financial aid.
Start reading the CC threads that give you basic information about applying.</p>

<p>Thanks, im taking college classes on the side at a local community college to try to raise it and ill try to get a 3.6-3.7 senior year 1st sem
Also i do go to one of the top schools in the nation, so getting a good gpa is very difficult.</p>
