  • Well, enroll him in community college, are you looking for a scholarship? You might want to try facebook if so.

  • It's not hard to get into college. Has he applied?

  • Also, YOU don't need to get him in to college. HE needs to get him in to college

  • You do not get him into college. HE applies and is either accepted or reject. You don't.

  • He needs to apply to the colleges to be admitted. Should have happened already.
    Most seniors that I know already have most of their acceptances and are now weighing their financial aid options.

  • I'll have my boyfriend watch his video when he gets home--oh wait, he is a watchmaker, not a college scout, so it won't do a lick of good.

  • I don't blame you for wanting a scholarship but I cannot help. The suggestions for a walk on or enrolling in community college are good.

  • He needs to be searching for colleges and see what they have to offer and since he plays sports he should get a scholarship out of playing football and basketball...Tour campuses talk to people
