Not many people utilise the services of a high school college prep center, and they should.
Choices abound every student after graduation. So many courses, careers to choose from and all those essays, application forms and recommendation letters to deal with… it can all get too much. The College Prep Center is there to prepare you for it.
It’s not just you, but everyone else who is experiencing panic, confusion and nervousness during this time of their life. Exams are looming, application deadlines are coming closer and you still haven’t got an idea what you want to do with the rest of your life (and you thought choosing an elective was hard!)
In order to make the most out of your high school’s college prep center, you should consult the people there about your application essays. You can show them an example of your work and maybe then can recommend ways in which you can improve it. They can give you tips on how to get into the college of your choice and tell you about those tiny details that can either make it or break it for you.
They will also help you make crucial decisions. Do you want to apply for a scholarship? Do you want to study East or West, North or South? Do you want to live in a dorm or do you have other arrangements? What is the job of your dreams? What do you want to study for the next 4 years of your life?
Collect brochures and whatever else you see in the college prep center, as you never know when they might come in handy. You may change your mind about your aspirations while in college, so it’s good to hold onto the things that helped you make a decision. You’ll be revising your decisions time and time over for the rest of your life.
Don’t let your life lead you, lead your life by exploring your choices and deciding what’s best for you. Visit your high school college prep center today!
