Throughout this section of the resource, we focus on activities you can complete to wrap up the college application process. This timeline-view gives you a guideline as to when in your high school career each activity is particularly relevant. Certain activities have a single checkmark (for instance, under winter of 11th grade year), typically indicating a one-time or short-term endeavor. Other activities have multiple checkmarks (for instance, every season from 11th through 12th grade), indicating ongoing commitments of time.

- Try a military academy,where sports and athletisism is required,while good grades are also, and the motivation is that your'e kicked out if you do not stay athletic and on top of your grades.
plus you pay in service, not money, and you get a G.I. bill, if you read the contract.(7 votes)
- what do i do if i don't get accepted to any of the colleges i applied to(1 vote)
- My recommendation would be to apply to some "safety" schools. By safety schools, I mean schools that you should get into without any problem. In many cases these will be public schools around you. If you are not sure about which safety schools to apply to, talk to your guidance counselor and they should help you out.(7 votes)
- Hi Iam from pakistan.I have scored 830/1100 on my grade 12 (Pakistani curriculum) and 1510/1600 on SAT-1 and 1600/1600 on my maths and physics SAT subject test. But the problem is that I have failed twice once in grade 11 and once in grade 12 due to health issues then I later re-took the the exams and scored well.Can this fact damage my college application and ruin my SAT scores.(3 votes)
- I'm so late but no, with that excuse (which you should provide some proof) they are more interested of what are you rather than how many scores you can earn.(2 votes)
- For those of you who are worrying about not getting into colleges, there's always another option, Junior College. (some places call it Community Colleges)
Here are some advantages...
1) It saves a lot of money: You can go to Community College for 2 yrs, get your Associate's degree and then transfer to a 4 yr college for your Bachelor's.
2) Most people who go to a 2 yr first actually have a higher acceptance rate than people who directly apply to a 4 yr straight out of high school.(2 votes)
- I am wondering how I could get into a program in the MIT Media Lab and/or USC Film School. At age 11, I am already worrying about my future profession, wanting to be a Material Designer at Google or a Film-Maker like Casey Neistat. I get mediocre grades, like B's, rarely C's, and sometimes A's. Help?(1 vote)
- All right, good news is you're 11 so you've got plenty of time. Bad news is your grades are low and NEED to be higher. Regardless of your career/major choice, you will want straight or mostly A's to get into a good college. The best way to get into something high-tier like MIT or USC is to focus on your passion. For you, that will be graphic design and/or film-making. So, what you'll need to to is everything related to film. Take any graphic design, film, or art classes offered at your school (specifically the hard ones at AP, IB, or Honors level, not an easy class like "Film Studies"). Join any film or graphics group at your school, if they don't have one, talk to a teacher or counselor about founding one. Make some amateur movies until you get better at it or join any local clubs (with parental permission obviously). The idea is to become good at film before you even go to college and being a general good student alongside honing in on your passion is the best way to go.(4 votes)
