It had been over a year since we made any updates to the user generated content section of Course Notes, so we thought it deserved a little TLC. We created the ability for users to share their notes with the Course Notes community back in 2010. Since then, users have uploaded thousands of their notes, outlines, essays, DBQs, and other study materials. These contributions have been invaluable for new AP students looking for chapter outlines for the most recent edition of their textbook, old DBQs to practice from, etc.

So you're procrastinator... The good news, so are millions of high school and college students across the country. By all accounts, you're not unique in your inability to get ahead on assignments and more often than not, you'll be "forced" to stay up late either cramming for an exam or attempting to complete a six page paper you were assigned more than a month ago.

While it's been years since I graduated high school back in 2007, my first-hand experience with the college application process remains vivid in my mind. Between the AP courses/tests, taking the SAT/ACT and the pressures to maintain a competitive GPA, the life of an ambitious high schooler is no doubt, stressful. In the years since I was accepted into College, acceptance rates (on average) have continued to decline. In 2012, my alma mater had an admission rate of only 12.4%.

My name is Daniel Black and I graduated from Claremont McKenna College in May of 2011 as a dual-major in Economics and Government. I was fortunate enough to spend time working as a "Senior Interviewer" for the Admissions Office which provided me with the opportunity to interview a large number of prospective students. I know what colleges look for (and what turns them off), but more importantly, what steps you can take to distinguish yourself from the crowd.

When it comes to back to school shopping for freshman students there's no need to make a list with the obvious items like notebooks, pencils, erasers and pens. You probably have a whole drawer stuffed full of school supplies like those that you can re-use. Within this article we'll be mentioning 5 supplies every freshman student should buy and we want you to focus on items that might not have immediately come to mind. If you can't think of any off of the top of your head then all you have to do is read the rest of article to find out what they are!

Despite the fact that my most recent post on course-notes.org discussed reasons  "why the infamous all-nighter is a terrible idea," I would like to share some advice for those of you that will, without a doubt, pull numerous all-nighters in the coming years.

Going to college can be expensive, especially after the four or five years it takes you to finish your undergraduate degree. The average American student graduates from college owing $20,000 in debt. However, there are ways to make your college experience less of a financial burden, and applying for scholarships is a fantastic way to do so.
