High school counsellor, I would apply to at least 2-3, and always try and get good references from school and a decent behaviour record.

You can get recommendations from anyone to be honest. Try to get a recommendation from your superiors, such as your principal or long-term boss.

I'm going to be going through the same thing after this school year. Keep in touch. I'd like to know how things go. I'm probably going to apply to one college, being the college of my choice, and if I don't get accepted, i'm going to attend community college for two years then transfer in.

Talking to your counselor would be the best.

You should probably apply for 3-4 colleges. Just incase when 1 or 2 of the good ones get declined.

But it as well depends on your grades.

My counselor told me to apply to a few "target" schools, meaning schools your pretty confident will accept you. Apply to a few "reach" schools meaning schools that may deny you but if your lucky will accept you. And apply to a few "safety" schools so if you miss your target and reach schools you won't be screwed. Also go on collegeboard.com to see which ones fit you and your achievements, GPA, etc.

In all honesty, unless you're apply to a big name school, you're not going to need references. Most schools just want you to have the requirements.

A counselor may help, but you don't need one to fill out an application. Most are really simple.

Don't take the easy road. If you want to get your bachelor's, you should get it from the best school you can go to.

If your high school is anything like mine was, then they should have processes and meetings and programs that will help you go through the step by step on choosing the perfect college / university, reaching the requirements or even going beyond what is asked for, applying, and student aid (money to pay for it all).

Your Councillor will be your best friend. We had college fairs all around my state and city where we looked at what each school had to offer and I would suggest going to a few of those if the opportunity ever rises.

I know people who spent hours after school with the Councilor working on getting ready for college.

It's going to stress the shit out of you if you're really worried about it, trust me. Don't let it get to you though. Spend as much time as you need on getting your grades to their highest points possible, and more time with your Councilor and you should be as prepared as anyone can get by the time you have to send in your application and recommendation letters.

Really appreciate everyones help but mainly this one. I managed to talk to my parents first about what I really want and now I need to speak to my counselor about my goals. This thread really helped me lower my stress level. Thanks everyone!
