Hello all,

I just discovered my mass mailing announcing the NABS web site development
skipped a handful of student divisions.  You didn't miss anything.  The
short of it is that I am working with the NABS board to launch the official
NABS web site in the next few months.

One of the items I am incorporating into the site is a compilation of quick
tip sheets on a number of subjects of interest to students, tip sheets
generated based on your own personal experiences.  To start, I am looking
for college students who can share their top ten best tips for high
schoolers on the verge of applying for college.  What did you look for in a
college or university?  How should high schoolers prepare for in the way of
readers, accommodations, dealing with professors?

My own tip is this:

Learn how to use Microsoft Office.  Downloading illegal music, swapping
e-mails and chatting on messengers is only going to get you so far, and I am
still surprised by the number of students who enter college unable to
correctly format a research paper.  For that matter, learn how to write, or
at least spell, but one step at a time.

Send us your own tips.  One or ten.  Help us make this a good list for high
school students to peruse as they make preparations for this very important
step in their lives.  I'll work with the NABS board to incorporate your
suggestions into a final document which will then be made available on the
site when it is launched.
