My Personality Type
I have a green personality type. That means that I am curious, intellectual, rational, and I love learning. My communication style is very to the point. I am logical, communicate facts, and I think before I speak. It frustrates me when there is small talk and failure, and when I am wrong publicly.

High School Timeline
- Get good grades- your freshman GPA sets the tone for the rest of high school and it's much harder to bring up a GPA than bring it down.
- Make good friends- choosing good friends means you get positive peer pressure rather than negative.
- Schedule an appointment with your guidance counselor- create an education plan and stick to it, making sure to choose classes you can get good grades in.
- Get involved- extracurricular activities matter on your college applications, so join and keep track of them.
- Begin thinking about careers that interest you.
- Talk to your parents- they understand better than you the costs involved in college. Make sure to start saving so you will be prepared.
- Request or download a real college application- if you know what to expect, you'll be less likely to freak out about the real thing.
- Keep your grades up- your GPA matters most in your first three years of college because colleges won't see grades from senior year second semester and might not even see any from all of senior year.
- Sign up and take the pre-SAT or the pre-ACT- your pre-SAT scores can let you get a National Merit Scholarship, and both tests show you where you can improve.
- Start researching potential careers- learn about the career itself and talk to people who are part of it.
- Compile a list of schools to consider- think about areas of study, strength of departments, distance from your town, and campus size.
- Keep up with your guidance counselor, extracurricular activities, and good friends, but avoid those who slack off or get in trouble.
- Take the ACT/SAT- check to see which test your favorite schools prefer.
- Boost your GPA- this is the last year that your grades will make an impact on admission boards and scholarship committees.
- Narrow down your college choices- do in-depth school research and consider things like financial aid and tuition costs, and visit campuses.
- Compile a résumé- learn how to do well in scholarship and internship interviews by asking counselors and teachers for help.
- Find a volunteer position- helping or working in your field of interest makes a difference.
- Write your scholarship essays- and get them critiqued and proofread by a teacher.
- Apply for scholarships- and apply for lots of them. Look online and in the school database, and ask your parents if their companies offer them. See if your church or nearby community groups offer them to local students.
- Begin making a list- record deadlines for financial aid, admissions, and scholarships.
Senior Year or 12th Grade
- Fight senioritis- the struggle to get lazy is real, but your grades still matter.
- Take the SAT or ACT again if you're unhappy with your first score.
- Get letters of recommendation in the first weeks of school from teachers, advisers, or employers who know you and your work well (no family or friends), and give each recommender a copy or your resume, examples of your work, and a list of schools you need letters for, and stamped examples.
- Apply to your top three to five schools.
- Make sure your applications contain everything they need, proofread everything (twice), send in a neat application, make copies of everything you send in the mail, and keep your admission fee receipt or check number just in case.
- Create a checklist of places you've applied and application deadlines.
- Pick a school that you got into, and tell them of your decision to attend. Tell all your other schools that you won't be attending, and send transcripts of the first semester of your senior year if your college requires it.
- Fill out the FAFSA as close to Jan. 1 as you can to qualify for government grants and loans.
- Make sure all the paperwork required by the university has been filled out and sent on time, and that you have paid all your fees.
