Over the past couple months, Seniors and, even some Juniors, have been scrambling to apply for college and find out what they are going to do with their lives. Some have been planning for college before they even reached high school, some have at least have a college picked out, and then there are some who have no idea what they want to do with their life. I got to interview 5 people about what they plan to do with their life after high school, and here are their responses.

Anna J., Senior

Have you decided which college you want to go to? Texas Tech!

Have you applied? Yes

Have you decided what you’re going to major in? Child development or elementary education

How do you feel about going to college? I’m really excited and nervous. I’m scared how hard actual schoolwork will be

How do you feel about going to college? Pretty excited, my brother graduated from A&M last year, and my sister is a freshman this year. It’s turned into a tradition and I’m really excited to get out of Keller and have some freedom. I’ll be in the same fraternity as my brother too so that’ll be fun.

Where do you picture yourself 7 years from now? I’ll hopefully be finishing up dental school and opening up my own office, making some bank and driving a nice car, too.
