There are a few basic steps to consider as you prepare yourself for college:

  • Take the ACT or SAT in high school and check with the colleges/universities that interest you on their accepting scores
  • Take practice ACT or SAT tests!
  • Talk to your parents about which colleges you want to apply to, and remember that there are application fees to submit most college/university applications, do your research before you sit them down so that they know what to budget for!
  • Identify what field interests you (which major) or go in as undecided and make the determination in your first year or two.
  • Not sure how to start the process? Shoot us an email at yesorganizer@vdlf.org for some help! Our organizers and leaders can meet with you or stay in touch on occasion to help you through this.
