Many students find themselves scrambling as high school juniors or seniors to take the SAT or ACT, identify the colleges that they are interested in applying to or the colleges that they believe that they can get into, while parents scramble to find the money to pay for the high cost of college tuition, room, and board. To avoid finding yourself in such a situation, following the strategies in this book, together with tracking your progress with the College Planning Notebook, will provide you with a commonsense, comprehensive college-bound plan.
This book provides a quick guide to the information contained in the book, A High School Plan for Students with College-Bound Dreams [Wynn, 2005]. Due to space limitations, strategies will generally contain brief descriptions and, subsequently, will require more extensive reading or research on the part of the reader. Please refer to the book and workbook for more extensive reading, activities, worksheets, and college-planning resources.
