Something I was told early on in the process was to cast my net wide, and I am immensely thankful for that piece of advice. There are more options for every student than the local college, or the big state school, or even the little private school a couple hours away. You are capable of more than you might think, so don't be afraid to aim big with your applications. Apply to a school that you doubt you'd ever get into. Apply for the most competitive scholarship that your school of choice offers. Aim high, and you might find that you are a better applicant than you would have guessed.
There are more important things in life than good grades and a high-paying job. So focus more on relationships, on making memories, and on developing who you are as a person.
I once drank 2 pounds of strawberry milkshake in 7 minutes, then ran an 8-minute mile through downtown Annapolis, MD, in my pajamas at midnight.
I dual-enrolled a few classes during high school, and my experience with the students in those classes was that they were counting down the days until graduation because they couldn't wait to leave. I didn't want that. I want to cry at graduation because I am so sad to be leaving people I love and a place that has been my home for the past four years. That is Wofford. We love it here and wouldn't trade our time at this school for anything.
