Like @_KC_ said, it's normal to be overwhelmed! There are so many choices, but don't let that intimidate you. Choosing a college and career is actually very exciting! This is when you get to explore what you enjoy to discover The Thing you want to do for life. Think about what you love, where you are happiest, and what is most important to you. Then you can talk with friends, teachers, high school counselors, and your parents to get some ideas.

One tool I recommend using is BigFuture on Collegeboard. They have helpful career quizzes and info on different kinds of careers/majors, as well as a college search engine. I personally found it helpful in narrowing down the choices.

Hope this helps you feel a little more confident. Please lmk if you have any questions!

It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed or scared when looking at colleges. But do not be scared, I am not sure what your gpa, ec, sat/act, or class rank is, but try to make a list of colleges you want to go to.

I will try to answer all of your questions if you have them.

Aren't we all? Something I found that helps is making a list of things you are looking for in a college (like the size, student/prof ratio, if you're religious or not, etc.), and then thinking about a couple of careers you might enjoy. To be honest, the most terrifying thing for me was thinking about my career, so if you're having trouble thinking of a couple try to shadow some you think you might enjoy or volunteer at centers that offer it.
