What resources are available to help me with the college application process?

Hi! I'm a junior, and I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by the college application process. I know there are resources out there to help, but I'm not sure where to find them or which ones are the most helpful. Can anyone share their favorite resources or tips for navigating the process? Thanks so much!

Hey there! I totally understand how overwhelming the college application process can be. From my experience with my own child, I can recommend a few resources that we found really helpful. First, check out the College Board's website (collegeboard.org) – they have a lot of great tools, including a college search feature, information on AP courses, and details about financial aid and scholarships. Another website we found useful was Khan Academy (khanacademy.org), which offers free personalized test prep and resources for the SAT and other standardized tests. For essay writing, we used the Common App Essay Guide (commonapp.org), which provides helpful tips and examples of successful essays. Lastly, don't forget about your high school guidance counselor – they can be invaluable in helping you navigate the process and connecting you with additional resources. And of course, it's always a good idea to talk to people who have been through the process, like friends, family, or even people on this forum. Best of luck with your college search and applications! You've got this!
