How to start applying
Answered

I am a senior in high school and I know I want to do something with law but I am not 100% sure what yet. I have no clue how to start applying for colleges because neither of my parents went past their freshman year of college. I just need a good place to start

I agree with @noahjt416. Also, if you have access to a college advisor or a counselor at your school, reach out to them and figure out what needs to be done. The best thing I did to get started was to make a game plan with a schedule. Try to set deadlines for yourself. Like, maybe by the next few days make a list of some colleges you want to attend, and then the next deadline you make can be to narrow down that list.

I would start with the Common App. Use College Vine or Niche to help find where you want to go to school. Common App is pretty good when it comes to step-by-step guides on how to apply.
