    This up coming school year I will be a high school junior. A lot of people have been telling I don't need to worry about college until I am a senior, but I feel I need to start thinking about it now. But I don't know where to start, and I need help from my angel sisters. If any of you angels have any advice, I would apperciate it if you give me some.

I am a high school senior and I suggest that you do the following:

* go on college tours with some schools in your area and/or go on college tours during August or Spring Break
* find the total costs of attendance for each school
* look up the FAFSA, CSS Profile, Common Application, scholarships that you can apply to now, etc.
* ask your teachers about personal statements
* get excellence grades, community service hours, work on your activities resume, etc.

That's all I can tell you right now because I am already in the middle of my process already.

Yes it is the time to start thinking about what school to might want to attend and what you want to major in. One of the major things for me was knowing what I wanted to do and what are the options for me to achieve them.

I've known since I was a sophomore in H.S. I wanted to join the navy and I did. I wanted to be a Nurse and I am. Im still progressing in my career. One of the hardest parts is finding out what you want to do. You can check us out at http://iangeladvocate.ning.com for Scholarship posting and if there is anything you want us to research or help you with send a message and the Angel Advocate team will be sure to reply. Good Luck honey!!! ^_^
