What resources can I use to help me with my college applications?

Hey everyone, I'm a high school junior and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the college application process. I know there are resources out there to help, but I'm not sure where to start. Are there any books, websites, or other resources you found helpful when applying to college? I'd really appreciate any suggestions you can offer. Thanks so much!

Hi there! It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed by the college application process, but there are definitely resources available to help you navigate it.

One great resource to check out is CollegeVine, which offers a variety of tools and guidance, from essay tips to a college list builder. Another helpful website is the College Board's BigFuture, where you can find information on colleges, scholarships, and more. Additionally, Khan Academy has a partnership with the College Board to provide free SAT test prep materials.

In terms of books, 'The College Panda' and 'The Princeton Review' have guides on SAT/ACT prep, and 'Fiske Guide to Colleges' is an excellent book for researching colleges. You should also consider speaking with your high school counselor for personalized advice and support.

Remember to stay organized, ask for help when needed, and give yourself plenty of time to work on your applications. Good luck!
