Save your money
This goes for just about anything. First off, research scholarships early and I mean really early, like the end of junior year early, and apply for as many as you can. College doesn’t have to be expensive. Even if you don’t feel qualified, there is really no harm in trying, and you can be surprised by the results. If you have the time, get a job if you don’t already have one. Even with the actual cost of schooling aside, living on your own is expensive. Open a savings account and save a portion of the money you make and try to save money where you can, future you will be thankful.
