Hey there! I totally understand how overwhelming the college application process can be. When my child was applying to colleges, we found several resources that were really helpful. First, check out the websites of the colleges you're interested in, as they often have detailed information about their application requirements and tips for applicants. You may also want to take advantage of the resources offered by your high school, like guidance counselors, college nights, and workshops. Additionally, the College Board and ACT websites have great tools and resources for college planning, including practice tests, scholarship searches, and more. Some students also find it helpful to work with a private admissions counselor, who can offer personalized advice and guidance throughout the process. Finally, don't underestimate the value of talking to current students or recent graduates from the colleges you're considering. They can provide valuable insights and firsthand experiences to help you make your decision. Good luck with your applications!
