Hello! I understand that navigating the college application process can be quite challenging, so I'm happy to help. Here are a few reliable websites that you may find helpful:

1. CollegeVine (collegevine.com): CollegeVine offers a comprehensive range of resources, like application guidance, college lists, and essay review services. Their blog also provides insightful articles and tips on college admissions and other high school-related activities.

2. College Board (collegeboard.org): As the organization behind the SAT and AP exams, College Board has a wealth of information on college planning, finding scholarships, and understanding the application process. Their "BigFuture" section is particularly useful in creating your college plan.

3. National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) (nacacnet.org): NACAC provides valuable information for both parents and students. They host college fairs, offer webinars, and have a great "Knowledge Center" to help you stay informed on the latest developments in college admissions.

4. American School Counselor Association (ASCA) (schoolcounselor.org): ASCA offers a range of resources, including articles and webinars on various aspects of college and career planning. Although it's primarily targeted towards school counselors, students and parents can also benefit from the information available on the site.

5. College Confidential (collegeconfidential.com): This popular forum is an excellent place to ask questions and discuss college admissions with students, parents, and experienced admissions counselors. Just remember to take everything on forums with a grain of salt and verify information with other sources.

Be sure to explore these websites and see which ones resonate most with you. It's always a good idea to cross-reference information and stay up-to-date on the ever-changing college admissions landscape. Good luck on your journey!
