Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Choose your majors wisely and always have the goals set: Math, Physics, Computer Science or Technology , English (for those not living in an English speaking country), and something to enrich your soul such as Art, History, or Literature. Keep your eyes on the prize, tough it up! No matter what you think you are losing while not "being a teenager," make time for that too. Time Management is the key.
