John Fulton

John Fulton is a high school senior applying to college. He is the oldest of two boys living in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. When you are the first kid in your family to apply to college and you don't have as much individualized guidance from your high school, you must embrace the process and learn as much as you can. The power of John's perspective and blog series is that so many of us can relate to not knowing what to expect from this process until it's done. John shares openly in the most self-effacing way the ups, the downs, and the sliver lining of applying to college as an American teenager.
