Well, I am not sure if that should be included, but there's this forum where high schoolers, college students and anyone trying to get to a good college or transfer to a better college posts, and there you can read the stats of the ones accepted into your choice of university, discuss the pros and cons of a college, etc

Not sure about these, but this website has a list of websites that offer scholarships. Always check if they really exist and if your college offers them:

Volunteering cannot be forgotten! It is important to show that you are giving back you your community. Volunteering at animal shelters, some non-profit organization, nursing homes, at elementary schools tutoring kids, or at a hospital setting are some ideas.
Some clinics and hospitals allow volunteering and access to patients, but you need to have your vaccinations in check and proof of TB negative or if TB positive, clean chest x-ray.

Being part of a club at your college, if you are in a community college or plan to go to grad school later, is good to add, especially if you do something nice when you are part of the club such as fundraisers, bringing awareness to something (for example, if your club is about pet lovers, bring awareness about puppy mills), or just volunteering at school for school events by setting up tables, etc.
