Hi everyone! I'm in search of ideas for a research paper that I have to write for one of my high school classes. I want it to be relevant to student life, academics, or the college admissions process. Does anyone have any interesting and unique ideas that would work well for a high school research paper? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's awesome that you're looking for unique and relevant topics for your research paper. Here are some suggestions that might interest you:

1. The impact of extracurricular activities on students' overall academic performance and college admissions prospects.

2. A comparative analysis of different college admissions systems worldwide (e.g. US, UK, and European systems) with a focus on fairness and efficacy.

3. The role of standardized tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) in predicting college success and how it affects underrepresented student groups.

4. The effects of stress on high school students' mental health, with a focus on academically competitive environments and potential interventions.

5. Exploring the benefits and drawbacks of early decision and early action applications, and how they might influence a student's college choices.
