Fortunately I'm blessed that money isn't an issue, all I need is that acceptance letter.

I know I'm very lucky and fortunate. It's a lot of pressure though. I HAVE to be able to provide my family one day with what I was provided with. My top colleges are Stanford, USC, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. I've had family that's gone to USC and UC Berkeley.

thanks man, yeah I'm gonna major in business. I started a brand and hopefully it's fairly large by the time I graduate. I'll be a sophomore in september. Do you think the fact that I've run a business look good during applications?

of course it does, anything about you that sets you apart from other applicants will increase your chances of getting in. it's also helpful for work experience that you can use when or if you apply for work study

USC is easy to get into if you're rich.
Go to UCLA instead.
He's probably from a wealthy affluent family, so no work study for you.

I just looked up what work study is and from what I understand it's a job you have while you go to school or something? Could someone explain it in simpler terms than wikipedia?

it's apart of your financial aid package that you receive for school. for example, i qualified for $2000 in work study this semester, so that's how much i'm able to earn through a work study job. however, i pocket that money and can spend it on whatever i want/need like toothpaste, transportation and shit.

Yeah, it's part of financial aid. So if you aren't eligible for financial aid, you aren't eligible for these job.
Say you do work study as a cashier at the student store, earning $8 an hour.
Your school would pay you $4, and the government would give you $4. = $8.

Lol so weird, we got a lot in common. I'm a sophomore now too, just started school last week. I'm hoping to major in business, and shoot for an MBA. Having a business will definitely help a lot on your application.

Anyone else have any tips for getting into a top college? Right now all I have going for me is sports, ap classes, and I got a 4.0 freshman year, but that will be harder this year since I have harder classes.

community service, volunteering, clubs, and start some shit at your school to leave a legacy. how will you be remembered at your school? if you can start something or bring an organization to your school, that would be excellent. like maybe a JDRF(diabetes awareness) program or something. you just have to be creative and set your self apart from the crowd. whatever you do though, dont slack off. keep your grades up and stay involved. and if youre a minority like myself, thats even better.

don't let your grades slip at all. One C or D and you're practically out of the running since it's that competitive. and like the others have said, make yourself different from the pack. they read 50,000 applications a year, they don't want to read the same, "i worked hard my whole life and i want to reach my expectations, blah blah blah" instead ask yourself what differentiates me from every other student applying to this school? what struggles did i overcome that made me the person i am today? how is (insert school) going to help me as a person and as a student in the future?

and smh @ that idiot up there who said all rich kids get into sc. maybe the billionaires and ridiculous donors but i've seen plenty of children of faculty and donors who have been rejected as well. that's why sc is ranked ahead of ucla in academics for the past 2-3 years now.

Thinking about maybe using my brand to do something big in the school. Maybe have a week or 2 where all proceeds go to a charity and I can involve the school in some way. idk hopefully something like that could happen and help.

you're only a sophomore so you have a lot of time to decide what you want to do. just make sure you keep those grades and sat scores high most importantly.

Here's the best advice you'll get: Don't throw one.

Unless you have someone that's going to clean up the mess for you, don't bother.
Word of mouth gets around and you might have originally planned to have like 50 people but instead a shitload more comes through and you can't really deny them entry.
Things are going to get stolen regardless of how valuable they are.

Just spend the money to rent a place for the night.

My garbage can eats better than 99% of the world.

Chances of me getting into NYU with a 3.6 GPA? Haven't taken SAT yet, but I'm guessing I'll be in the 1600-1800 range. I'm an out of state student as well.
