Work harder in the classes you're taking in high school, don't worry so much about what others think of you. Don't waste so much time worrying about working a minimum wage job, and study like there's no tomorrow.
Pick a school that has things of your intrest and in a area that you can enjoy activities that you like. Talk to people from the college to see what they have to say about the school and their experiences.
