8 Steps To Help You Prepare for the College Application Process

If you’re in junior high school, this is the best time to prepare yourself for college admissions. You wouldn’t want to rush and be forced to choose a college course and campus at the last minute just because you forgot to prepare early. The decision you make in the coming year will play a significant role in your future career or status in the corporate industry (if that is your goal). 

Here are 8 things you can do during your junior high school year in preparation for college:

 1. Make a list of potential courses you intend to take and find out on which universities these courses are offered.
