Key to Success
Work Hard, Be Happy, and Have a Good Life!
And That is the Key to Success
Pay Attention in Class and Participate
Get Involved in Helpful Activities.
By this, I mean get involved in activities that will help your application. Don't overload on like 10 clubs and extra-curricular activities because it will be overwhelming and a waste of time if it has nothing to do with what you want to do when you are an adult. For instance, don't take yearbook club if you want to be a doctor because it has nothing to do with the medical field. Instead, Science Olympiad would be a good choice. Don't take more than three clubs because getting good grades is more important and clubs could interfere with your studying time.
Select and Apply to Colleges.
Pick around 3-4 ivys to apply to, 3 equally good schools that aren't ivys, 2-3 average backup schools, and 1-2 easily reachable schools. Examples of ivys are Harvard and Princeton. Examples of equally good, not-ivy schools are University of Chicago and John Hopkins. Examples of backup schools are University of Michigan and UCLA. Examples of easily reachable schools are Villanova and Purdue.
Do Well in College and Have a Good, Well-Paying, Dream Job
Follow frames 2-4 for the college part. For the job part, just do what you love!
