One of the first steps in creating a college prep plan is to put together your list of potential colleges. That is why we suggest you start that as soon as possible. Once you have that initial list, you can start researching the admission requirements at those schools.
Keep in mind that every college and scholarship will have different requirements. It is important to start looking into this early so that you know what types of goals you need to set. If you are applying for an ivy league school, your goals and therefore your college prep plan will look very different than that of a student applying to a state school. Neither one of these plans is better than the other. The important thing is that you need to be realistic about your interests, abilities and aspirations. This is why it is so important to understand the requirements ahead of time.
