Should you be looking up colleges when you are in eigtht grade?

I would suggest looking up colleges when you're at least in highschool. It's helpful to know what exactly you wanna do when you get into college, but actually finding a college isn't really that necessary until later in your life. also, there's this thing called college plus, and if ya want this lets you do college during highschool--so that way you graduate college when you graduate highschool. this is only if you wanna work really hard to earn your degree during highschool. you would have to start this next year. http://www.collegeplus.org/howitworks

I'd be sure to be focused on current studies. Not a bad time but stay on your "here and now" schooling.

But i would rather be prepared for college early rather than when it is too late to have a good time to apply to a college like Slippery Rock University.
Report as
You have a good thought process. But since you're in the 8th grade, you could be going to a better college. You never know... Harvard? Yale? Brown? Princeton? The ceiling is endless.
Report as
Yeah but my focus is mainly on Slippery Rock University because it is the first college i ever heard of so i chose Slippery Rock University but i ned to know what kind of programs Slippery Rock University has because i want be an RN
Report as
It's a wonderful start really. I'm just trying to help expand your horizons. Slippery Rock is a good college too. You are in 8th grade. Possibly think of talking to a teacher or counsellor.
Report as
How do you know what kind of college slippery rock is do you live in pennsylvania.
Report as
Lived in PA for most of my life. Live in DE now. I have known a few that went there years ago. Nothing but good things about that school. Again, just try to always reach higher than you can.
Report as
Oh so are you familiar with Foxburg Pennsylvania or Parker Pennsylvania?

Grew up in Allentown.

Oh well I do not even know where that is.

I am already looking up college so it is a little late to be telling me too just stick to eighth grade for ring now. What does sp mean in your answer.
Report as
You spelled eighth wrong. That's why you should stick with eighth grade concerns. Read over your comment. Ring? You have enough on your young shoulders to worry about college so early.
Report as
Yeah i know i spelled eighth wrong i just could not think of how to spell eighth i was having a blonde moment.
Report as
N i do not have enough over my shoulders right now i am just getting started looking up colleges.

Oh really because my grand mother just told me that i should not be looking up colleges when i am eghth grade because they will not talk to me until i am in eighth grade.
Report as
Ihighly doubt that she is right though because i heard people that have talked to colleges and they are only in nineth grade so i think she has her gades mixed up so that is why i will keep looking up colleges no matter what she says to me.

Thank you but my grandmother said that I should not and she does not realize that I have the chance to go to colleges and see which one I want to go to.
Report as
Your grandmother is wrong. If you know what college you want to go to before high school, it gives you a better shot. You can work toward the requirements for the college while you're in high school and you will have a better chance of getting in.
Report as
You can even get a full scholarship depending on the college. My sister got one a few days ago to UK and she's in the 9th grade. You have to sign up for certain programs though. All the expenses are paid for. If anything, your grandmother should be jumping at the opportunity.

Oh wow r hat is early thank you I will remember that.
Report as
You're Welcome. She always was the nerd of the family..
Report as
Oh that is a good reason and tell that a person that you talk to says congrats on getting a scholarship to go to Uk and tell her to keep up the good work.
Report as
Ok. Thank you, dear!
