I wish I knew about the average yearly increase in tuition. I didn't know tuition raises every year and it would have been nice to know and plan/save for it or choose a different school.

Other Advice/Information

I found the Finance class at PCHS helpful because it provided information about personal finance and how to manage your money. If they don't have that class anymore, I highly recommend learning about Personal Finance (i.e., building credit, student loans, investing, ROTH IRA). Ask your potential colleges about the resources they provide to help you land your job after you graduate.
