    Keep up your GPA and focus on extra curricular activities! A less than average GPA can be made up for with incredible involvement within the community. Check out events happening in your town or school to get involved, it is a great way to meet new people and make valuable memories that will keep you going throughout college. Make sure you know what you are getting yourself into, don't just take a student led tour of the school, take one yourself! Before you visit make sure to look up what there is to do in the community surrounding your school and check it out once you visit. Be sure to ask yourself if you can see yourself living here for the next four or so years (with UCSB I guarantee you will!) and make a mental note of things you notice about the school in case you need to compare it to other schools you are considering. I know that the college search is a stressful time, but I promise it will be done in no time and that sooner or later you will miss it! read full review
