You should apply too!
Apply, nothing special to it. Some might be interested in applying to Presidents Leadership Class if you are enthusiastic about a community of students who share academically oriented ambition. This program got me through the tedium of the first year of less-than-exciting coursework, but then got a little to self-important for me to handle. Just as everything else, it is a balancing act, but one that might be worth pursuing.
Getting into CU was not too difficult, the difficult part is receiving scholarships. My only advice for getting scholarships is COMMUNITY SERVICE! I applied for 13 scholarships through CU and only received one, the chancellors scholarship which saves me $20,000 over the course of 4 years. But if you can rack up some community service hours throughout high school, scholarships will come much easier.
