High school is an opportunity to learn and prepare for college. After three years of trying to develop identity and friends in middle school, students are expected to mature immediately on the first day of ninth grade.

I’m now glad I had taken my grades in my earlier years seriously because I am applying to college with a 3.9 GPA and a smile on my face. In my view I set my goals and standards high for myself and I feel that I am a college’s dream candidate. I understand that college will be significantly more challenging than high school; however, with my new goal-oriented nature, I realize that I am working towards my college degree and my future success.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
