Pick out what colleges you'll apply to now, collect the application paperwork, write the first drafts of your admissions essays and investigate local and national scholarship opportunities. If you haven't had a frank discussion with your family about what they can contribute to your education, now is the time. Get a firm understanding of how much college funding you already have, so you have a ballpark idea of how much financial aid you'll need.
