Sophmore seeking advice

  1. Hi,
    My name is Destany, Im a sophmore in high school. As of right now I have an 83B in economics, 88 in literature, 95A in biology, 70C in geometry, 92 in health and 95 in nursing. I just got doen taking finals and I know I did excellent on my geometry final so that grade will go up. This is my first C. Anyways........we did class rankings and in my class of 08 there are 388 students, im #52. Im in the top 20%. I want to go to Vanderbilt or Belmont for college. The only thing is Nashville is 8 hours from here. Everyone is against me going. I know Vandy is hard to get into but Im going to try my hardest to make straight A's from now on. If I dont get into Vandy then I want to go to Belmont. I live in GA so Ive been researching scholarships and cant really seem to find what Im looking for. I just got a checking account and at the moment I have $350 in it. I get $20 a week for allowence. Ill turn 16 in December and Ive already been guarenteed a job. So all of that money that I get from my job and I will still be getting allowence, thats the money Im taking with me to college. Im just so lost with getting information from colleges. I need to see what scholarships I can apply for. I know Im going to need to get loans so I need information on that.
    Sincerely,
    Destany

    Hello and Welcome to Allnurses.com

    Have you tried talking to your guidance counselor at the school? She/he will have information regarding scholarships and loan information.

    Good luck and we look forward to seeing you in a nursing program. Vandy is excellent. Hope you can get into their program
