What can I do now to prepare to apply to colleges?
1. Get familiar with general college entrance requirements.
2. It's also time to start checking out college fairs and meeting with college counselors when they come
to Westbury. Start investigating schools by attending one fair and a session or two with
representatives at school.
3. Volunteer with one or two organizations. Stay committed to them. Colleges want COMMITMENT to
one or two organizations.
4. Stay involved with school activities but look for a way to become a leader within that activity.
