One of the most rewarding ways to begin your college career is by starting it in high school. College is a daunting experience, no doubt about it. High school is likewise a stretch of your life that may bring bad memories and experiences. Both school experiences may offer horror stories you will live with for your entire life. However, speaking from experience, you can reduce the number of scary experiences that could occur in your first year by beginning your college career while still attending high school.

What if colleges applied to you? Seems counterintuitive, right? It’s not. Here’s why. Schools spend years preparing students for the college applications process. Families agonize over how to put the ‘best’ student forward. In the end, students and colleges expend a great deal of time and energy to find a mutually good fit.
