    Get involved in things way outside your comfort zone. Really into robotics? Try auditioning for your school's next play!

    Really use your time to explore the city. Be in the habit of budgeting yourself. Put yourself out there and talk to people, be open about new things. Try taking classes in a variety of subjects, not just your intended major. There may be less of a traditional campus feel due to being in crowded Manhattan, but that doesn't make it any less of a college experience if you want to enjoy yourself.

    Research every single college. I was surprised to find out that even in my current level, I have a very good chance of being admitted into this superior institution. Fulfill as much as you can in high school, because EVERYTHING helps. That club you may find stupid may be the key to getting a full scholarship. You never know.
