    Get better grades....prepare for and do well on the standardized tests (SAT/ACT), run for class president, take up three more sports and become team captain in all of them. Attend Boy's State. Earn your Eagle Scout. Become commander of your JROTC unitl.

    And apply for the scholarship

    those are my suggestions

    Too late for my kid. But I think I might engrave it in "reverse Leonardo script" on my grand kids foreheads. That way they can read it whenever they look into the mirror. It would also be a great conversation starter for them.

    Edit: That is if I'm still around whenever my grand kids are born. No rush though!!! Seriously!
