    If you have the slightest interest in an opportunity, take it! You'll hear it over and over, but this really is the time to step out of your comfort zone. Chances are you'll be thankful you did!

    Don't be afraid to do a tour in the winter to see what Rochester is really like. Just know that the room you see on a tour is more nice than an actual college dorm. Senior year is still important so don't be susceptible to senioritis. Look and apply for scholarships.

    Take advantage of any college or AP classes you have available to you. It helps to lessen your work load further on in college, which gives you a more flexible schedule and a better chance at picking up a minor. Also, be sure to look at professor ratings but dont just look at the numbers. Look at what students have to say and what class the comment is in respect to. Get to know your teachers as well, since it is likely you could pick up a mentor this way.

    The most important year of high school is Junior year. Make sure that you take challenging classes and do well in them so that college can see them when you apply to college. RIT has few general education requirements, but it does still have a few. All students need an artistic class, class that studies the global perspective of some sort (macroeconomics, history, etc), a class that studies the cultural persective, and an ethical course. That is it. Then, a student needs to pick a cluster of courses to study unrelated to the major. For these, there are a lot of classes to choose from in any field that are not liberal arts. Take as many AP classes as possible to satisfy the 4-5 general education requirements.
