    There are 3,800 colleges in the USA. There are eight Ivy league colleges. 2,000,000 kids will start college next year. The Ivy league schools (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Coumbia, Cornell, UPenn) will enroll about 10,000 freshmen total between all of them.

    So, what do you think? 10,000 out of 2 million. In order to get into one of these schools you have to be absolutely one of the best students in your school, with a top GPA, top SAT scores, lots of leadership (not just membership) in extracurricular activities. If you want to be in one of these eight schools, or one of the few equivalent schools such as Stanford, Duke, Washington U, Chicago, MIT and Caltech, you have to turn around your academic work right now. No more Cs. No more Bs. Just As. And you have to take the toughest courses your school offers -- all honors and APs.

    What is more reasonable is to realize that among the other 3,800 schools are hundreds that can give you a great education. One of those school is probably the right one for you.

    IT is good that you are thinking about this. Now you have to keep looking around, checking to see what you want in a college - big, small, city, country... and gradually narrow down your choices until you are certain of what you want.

    Good luck. You WILL find a college that is a good fit for you.

    ps isn't it time to stop using baby talk? "u" and "ur' "collage" How about from this moment on, using only correct English, proper grammar, properly spelled!

    State school is just as good you can get some of the best professors in the country at a state school and you'll get a good education and meet people from so many different back-rounds Ivy league schools are great but you are going to have a very difficult time getting into one, some of the Smartest students in the country cant get into Ivy League schools that they have been preparing to go to their entire lives. Please dont give up on you dream but you'll have to have much better grades.

    if you are struggling through high school, why are you going to an Ivy League University? it will be so hard!

    but yes you still can, you are only 9th grade. improve ALL of your grades to A, take AP classes, graduate early, participate in extracurriculum activities, community services, sports or theater etc. Possibly to community college and senior year of high school at the same time. Good luck!

    honestly sweetie... you would be much better off just going out into the real world and getting a job that you will enjoy.

    You can go to school at something like the university of Phoenix, and get a degree quickly enough. While making something out of your life.

    If you are going to go to school you will spend way more money then you will be able to recover. It will take you decades to recoup it all....

    Your best bet is to go get a job at a financial adviser. The largest paycheck you can get without a degree. And you are not going to have to spend soooooo much money school.
