Earn a good GPA. Participate in strong Extra Curriculars. Hone your writing skills so you can write phenomenal essays. Start applying to scholarships now. Practice for the ACT/SAT so you can earn a good score. Look up what the average SAT/ACT and GPA is for that university. Earn college credit through AP/IB/dual credit to make your college experience easier.

Good luck!!!
