If you’re a college-bound student, I’m sure you’re always hunting for ways to get into your dream college.

I can’t tell you how many articles I’ve read on how to get into Harvard, or how many times I’ve consulted family members and teachers on what I need to do to get accepted there.

So because I want you to succeed, I’d love to share with you a few ways to get into your dream college that I’ve found.

Follow these steps and universities will be begging you to apply!

1. Maintain a High GPA

Of course, one of the key ways to get into your dream college is to maintain a high GPA.

Ideally, you should begin high school with great grades and keep them up all the way until graduation.2

But if you had a slip up one year, don’t stress;

your GPA is your grade point average, emphasis on the average.

There’s always time to compensate for earlier mistakes with later successes when it comes to your academic achievement.

But don’t ever slack off with hopes that "someday" it’ll all work out, you should aim to maintain a high GPA all through high school.

2. Get Involved

Getting involved in school is great not only for your personal enrichment but also for preparing for your dream college.

Whether you’re interest is in drama, sports, or clubs, colleges will take notice of how well rounded you are.

There was a time when you may have been able to get into top notch schools by solely being a good student, but competition for universities is higher now than ever.

That’s why you need to show your dream school that you’re active and successful in many aspects of your life.

This will be sure to help you come application time!

3. Get Connected

Everyone can agree that having a connection to your intended college really helps come application time.

I love, respect and admire my parents so much, but a part of me always wishes that one of them had attended Harvard so my application could get that extra boost!

But your college doesn’t have to be one of your parent’s alma mater;

try to get connected in other ways like getting to know the dean of admissions personally if you can.

Also, see if your dream school has a summer program so you can meet some professors and maybe even have one of them write a letter of recommendation for you!
