I'm a senior in high school now and I'm going through the whole college selection process. I still need to write my resume and my student essay. Does anyone have any selections or guidelines on how to prepare a well-done essay and resume?
Also, I'm undecided over how far away from home I'll be going. I'm hoping to stay within 50 or 60 miles (I live in South Jersey), where I can go to a school like Rutgers, Rowan, or Temple. There are a ton of good schools in the region, and while I'm not too fond of the exact area I live in, I'll feel horrible leaving my family. There is one school just a few miles away from my house that I'm looking at, but I'm not sure it would give me what I'm looking for in a college. This dilemma has been bothering me months now.
Please pray for me too make the right decision.
