What will ihave to do to go to college?

<p>Hey guys this is my first threat so I'm sorry if a created it under the wrong topic. But I have a really big dilemma and I would really hope that some of you could help me.</p>

<p>the thing is I am and exchange student from denmark in my senior year in High school. But I would really like to go to college after the year is over. But it seems like a lot of work. Not gonna lie a am a very good kicker in football and all ive talked to say I wouldn't have trouble getting a scholarship for it. It would be my biggest dream to go to college here in US.</p>

<p>But what I need to know from you guys is simply What do I have t
o do? What tests do I have to do and what paper work do I have to fill
out? Is it possible for me to get a scholarship and in that case what would I have to do to make is easier for my self? What are the
requirements for me to be able to go to college?</p>

<p>And I want to study sports medicine</p>

<p>Btw I'm in Illinois, but I do not care where I go to college in USA. And I'm aiming for the best schools as possible. division I Schools would be the best.</p>

<p>Hope you can help me

<p>Hi Jonas </p>

<p>Talk to your Guidance Counselor – if you’re a senior, unfortunately it’s rather late to be starting. He or she should be able to provide advice to you.</p>

<p>Two bits of information:

  1. Only D1 and D2 football teams offer athletic scholarships. Not D3.</p>

<li>Often the kicker position is a walk-on, meaning not a recruited scholarship position. My S was offered a chance to try out for a <em>big time</em> program if he went to the school. He was recruited for another sport but football had this opportunity for a walk on. </li>

<p>Start with the football coach of your high school team. Get his honest assessment of your chances. Your Athletic Director might have some good background for you as well. Then, talk to your Guidance or College Counselor. But start with the athletic department. Many times Guidance doesn’t have any idea where to go with athletic recruiting.</p>

<p>You need to find out from the administration office of your exchange program whether or not it is possible to stay in the US. Your visa may have restrictions that require you to return to your home country for a year or two after finishing this exchange year.</p>

<p>My coach did say there is a realistic chance for getting a scholarship, even though I not the kicker position is not the position that gets most scholarships. But I am aware of that in case I did get some sort of scholarship it might not (almost with a 100%) not be a full scholarship. But I know that in the US most people starte saving money for their kids college when they are born and school is free in Denmark so my mom didn’t do so. And she’s the only one taking care of me back home and is a ristricted nurse. So we’re doing fine but we are not rich. So let’s just say for example a half payed scholarship would make a hige difference for me and my mom for paying expended for college.</p>

<p>Hey guys this is my first threat</p>

<p>Hey, we have a winner for that thread about one-liners on CC. ;)</p>

<p>*And I want to study sports medicine
That is not an undergrad major. That is a specialty after one becomes a doctor. </p>

<p>You need to quickly sign up for the SAT and ACT… </p>

<p>What is your GPA?</p>

<p>How much will your parents pay for college? you need to ask your parents specifically how much they’ll pay each year.</p>

<p>*My coach did say there is a realistic chance for getting a scholarship, even though I not the kicker position is not the position that gets most scholarships. *</p>

<p>Can you clarify? What kind of scholarship does your coach think you could get and from what schools?</p>

<p>I believe the occupation is called student athletic trainer. That’s what I want to become. I’ll take the ACT and-or SAT within the next two weeks. I’m not sure what my GPA is but I’ll find out in a few days. But my average is at 90,333 for all my classes combined. I might be able to get financial aid from the state of Denmark but I’ll have to sign up for a school before thats going to be a possibility. So that would help my mom and I with paying. But it would probably be around 20 grand a year, which I believe would be enough for a lot of good schools. But that would make my mom live a really poor life back home t be able to send so much money. She did tell me she would be willing to take a loan to follow my dream.</p>

<p>Talk to your guidance counselor and HS Coach about paperwork necessary for the NCAA, ASAP. If you want scholarship, first you need to get on that…then work on getting your name out there.</p>
