Subject says it all, basically. I have a Sim that just turned teen, and
I'm wondering how long I can play him as a teen and still be able to
send him to college without having something stupid happen, like growing
up at college and not being able to finish because he's too old.

I usually send them to college a day before they are scheduled to turn into
an adult. It's in their best interest to give them as much skill building
time as possible in order to qualify for the most scholarships.

You can wait until the last minute of his teen life.
I do it with my teens and it works perfect.

So you don't get a popup box or anything on the last day telling you
it's the last chance?

If you wait you get pop-ups from time to time during the teen years saying
it is time to start thinking about college and stuff about keeping the
grades up etc because they count. I can't recall if you get a pop-up on the
last day of teendom saying it is your last chance. I almost never wait more
than a few days.

I usually send them off three (or so) days before adulthood. I know that
there is a warning about then about time running out. Isn't there a standard
'X Sim's birthday is tomorrow' message?

This was exactly why I wanted the answer to that question; it
effectively extends the Sim's life, giving him more time to work on
skills, relationships, and aspirations.

Is there a list anywhere of what scholarships are available,
qualifications to get them, and how to earn the qualifications?

He won't grow up at college either - time doesn't work the same there.
They're always young adults until they leave and return to their
neighbourhood - it's then that they'll grow up into adults.

if you have 7 points in any skill, you will get a scholarship for that-
1000 for the first skill, 750 for each skill therafter. May be 8. But
doesn't need to be maxed.

You will get scholarships for being an orphan and for being a straight A
student as well. Not sure if there is a scholarship for having been in a
Private school or not.

I think you can get scholarships from jobs too, but not sure on that.
