Flipping Burgers Has a Guest Post at CollegeFinder by GlobalScholar

I was pleased to be asked to write a guest post about 9th grade college preparation for CollegeFinder.GlobalScholar.com/blog. Here’s the beginning of that post:

To many parents and teens the idea of considering – during the summer before 9th grade – where the student may apply to college in 12th grade seems way over the top. Why put on the pressure so early?

Ironically, applying to college in 12th grade may be easier because of some pre-planning before the start of 9th grade.

Let me explain: When students plan what courses they will take for four years of high school, they may know what their own high school requires (for example, how many years of science, math and a foreign language in order to graduate high school). Equally important, they may not know what courses (and for how many years) colleges will want to see on a student’s high school transcript.
