Hey there! It's great that you're starting to think about college applications early. Here are a few tips to help your application stand out: 1. Get involved in extracurricular activities - colleges love to see students who are engaged in their community and have a variety of interests. 2. Take challenging courses - this shows colleges that you're willing to push yourself academically and can handle the rigor of college classes. 3. Develop strong relationships with teachers - having teachers who can write you stellar recommendation letters is a huge plus. 4. Write a unique and compelling personal statement - this is your chance to show colleges who you are beyond your grades and test scores. 5. Apply for internships or work experience - real-world experience is valuable and can set you apart from other applicants. 6. Stay organized and start early - this will help you avoid last-minute stress and ensure that your application is the best it can be. Best of luck!
