3. Earn college scholarships for your achievements in high school;

4. Set up a dedicated email address, just for college stuff (i.e., Gmail);

5. Take a test drive on Common App. Set up an account. Have a look around. Add colleges and view supplements. [Don’t worry. Your account will be deleted in June. This is just for fun!]

6. Begin to explore college options. Check out colleges by interests, majors, geographic region, and more at Register and complete the profile. It’s FREE!]

8. Plan a vigorous courseload for next year and keep those grades up. ‘Nuf said...

9. Double up on Forbidden Chocolate ice cream. Believe me, it helps!
