    Study hard. Don't be afraid to get a bad grade. You have to go to this school for you, not because anyone else wants you there.

    Senior year of high school, take challenging classes and acquire a variety of experiences to bring to college. AP courses are great, focus on AP over ACT/SAT scores. Make sure you're used to using whatever computer you bring, as you'll be using it quite a bit. It may be in your best interest to bring a PC, as some classes (Epics or Biology) require certain programs (Solidworks, Logger Pro) to complete the homework.
