Now You Can Be On Your Way To A Top Ranked College

Aug 17, 2007
The importance of a college education has been stressed more times than you would care to hear.

Whether you look at it from a practical angle or in terms of a sense of accomplishment, it still better to have stepped into a reputable college and graduate with a degree, rather than being merely out of high school and applying for an easy or quick earning job which is not guaranteed to give you a lifetime career.

In addition, it would not hurt to give yourself, and your parents something that they can be proud of, which is a college degree, something that is invaluable.

If you are a student out of high school, you would be so busy with filling up your college application forms and composing your entrance essays as you reach the end of the school year.

Your curriculum vitae would be even more impressive once you get into a reputable college. Thus, it would not hurt to think about getting into a top ranking college of your choice.

As early as the first day of your last year in high school, you can make plans and prepare so that you can get into the college of your choice. Here are some tips for you to follow:

1. Make a list of all the top ranking colleges and universities that you want to get into.

If you do not have an idea of what you will major in yet, you can put your dream school on top of your list. Then, put on second, third to nth place the colleges which offer some related fields that catch your interest.

2. Once you have a 'target college', research and review the requirements.

A general rule for colleges is to admit a prospective student who has graduated from high school in the past five years. If you go straight from high school to college, then this should not be a problem for you.

Another requirement is to pay an application fee. Remember that this fee cannot be refunded, even if you do not get into the college after taking the entrance exams.

3. Study hard and invest in having good grades if you want to get into the school of your choice.

If you plan on taking up medicine, or if you dream on going to law school, you can never study hard enough. It does not hurt to be overly prepared. After all, it is your future which is at stake so it is a good thing to really study and prepare for your college education.

If, for example, you plan to go into law school, you need to take your undergraduate degree at top schools like Yale, Princeton or Harvard.

Prior to the college entrance exams, make sure that your grade point average is acceptable and good enough to get into such reputable colleges and universities.

With these tips in mind, you can be on your way to getting into a top ranked college and start studying for that ever-important college degree.
