Student loans are a great resource to help you get the education of your dreams. Planning is key, though, to avoid becoming a financial-crisis statistic.
Though you may feel classrooms make you study enough, it’s a good idea to do some learning about the things you’ll need to know when classrooms are in your past.

Seeing the post-high-school world of choices as a big shopping mall.
During my high school years, and even before my parents told me, I always knew I was going to attend college.
Now that I have been settled on a college campus for a month, I can honestly say it was one of the greatest choices I have ever made, and most likely will ever make. For the time being, my decision to go to college has been everything I dreamed it would be plus some added bonuses.
When my little sister Ashley was about to start high school, four friends and I made her The Guide, a little “how-to” booklet on surviving high school. I thought of making it because I remembered how overwhelmed I was when I began high school back in the fall of 2007 and, after reading through it again, I realized how helpful some of this stuff would be in my transition from high school to college.
The advice that my friends and I compiled ranged from “friendships” to “general survival,” and I would like to share some with my “devoted” readers.
Confused by all the tests to get into college? Here’s a quick guide.
Everybody tells me, “Your senior year should be your easiest and best year,” but I just don’t know about that. I am very excited about my senior year, but I’m also scared of the trials that it’s going to bring with it.
It’s really easy while you’re in high school to put your blinders on and focus only on walking across the stage at graduation, whether you’re a freshman on the first day of school or a senior taking your last final exam.
This may seem like a wonderful idea at first. With your blinders protecting you from the distractions that go hand-in-hand with high school, you’re sure to carve the most efficient pathway possible.
But did you ever stop and think about the possibility that maybe those distractions could be teaching you more valuable information than you’re learning in your biology class? Not to say that the class work, homework and tests aren’t extremely important (because they are), but high school is about much more than the classes listed on your schedule.
Until you get perfect grades on everything, there’s always room to improve as a student. If you’re hoping to improve on the things you accomplished last year, the tips here might help you make the strides you’re looking for.
