this is a paragraph for a paper can someone please check the grammar? Only a small portion of the population in the United States are attending schools, and that small portion are people who really want to stand out and have a life full of joys and success. College is the place where you can choose the career you want to study and therefore plan for a better future. Also, to achieve your goals you must first be a successful student and to achieve it you first have to have qualities such as organization, consistency and be confident.

That's not accurate. All children attend school until they are at least 16.
Don't use "you" in a formal essay.
