What did you do to prepare for college? At the time I graduated in June 1987, many of the classes were free.
What advice do you have for our students when thinking about colleges?
They have to start early. Work hard on their GPA. Practice the SAT by going to tutoring so they can score high.

I went to college after I got married and have children and it was 3 times harder to do all three. So, I would say do it when you have no family yet.
