Back to BEAM: College Edition

One year from now, you will be admitted to college! That's right: in less than 12 months, you will make your final college decision.
How do you get there?  What do you need to do?  What do you need to know? 
Here’s what Aisha (currently a student at Northwestern University) had to say about BEAM’s college advice:

Most importantly, throughout the entire college process, BEAM has helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. The college process was one of the most difficult and draining times during my high school experience. However, what made it better was BEAM.
— Aisha
