Tips for Those Wanting to go to College

DREAMers should still read this.  As Luis Perez at UCLA Law School shows, DREAMers can go to college.... it's when you graduate that the test will really come.  Let's see if Obama and Reid are true to their word - its time for them to get tough with the likes of Steve King and the re-invented anti-immigration John McCain.

As for everybody else wanting to go to college....  DEADLINES are super important.  Did you know that those with lower SAT's can get into the University of Houston if they apply before December 1?  After that you will be lucky if they pay attention to you...  This is the new form of "college selectivity."  -- They don't tell you "no" based on qualifications, you are told "no" based on when you sent in your application.  So get moving HS seniors... take control of your future.
