With so many facets to the college application process, it can be daunting for students and their families to know where to begin. A good starting point, and a crucial piece of the application process, is creating a college list.

Being a high school student is stressful, and the pressure to study to go to your top college and reach your dream job can make it even more so. On top of all of that, thinking about choosing a career path can be incredibly daunting, especially as a 16-year-old.
