2013 Guide to College Admissions

College—Deadlines, Details, and Unexpected Fun

Whether you’re a sophomore, junior, or even a senior who is thinking of applying to college, working your way through the process can be both frightening (due to the work it entails) and exhilarating.

This year’s TeenLife 2013 Guide to College Admissions can help you and your parents navigate through the entire process from start to finish, right up until you set foot on campus. Read a surprising and inspiring story of a “C” high school student, Michael Bloomberg, who found his calling in college, and see how you can choose a major and career path as you go through your college years. Along with using this guide, there are a lot of additional resources on TeenLife.com and other web sites. In fact, we have highlighted “Sites We Like” which showcase everything from tutoring and test prep to scholarships and virtual campus tours, where you can actually meet current college students at each school.

This guide includes tips ranging from how to choose the right school to filling in your application, section by section. There are even hints on how to live with roomies— important if you’ve never shared your personal space before.

The college admissions process is filled with deadlines and details, but also unexpected fun. We hope that our informative guide helps ease your journey from high school to campus.
