A lot of states require that you have a SSN to get a driver's licence. So, you can apply for your SSN two weeks after your arrival in the U.S. (it takes 2 weeks for you to show up in the SAVE system).

I believe you can register for college as soon as you want, but as a "non-resident" you will have to pay very high tuition costs (almost 3 times higher than a resident). So, you may want to wait until you have met the residency requirements and then attend college.

Ehm, not to spoil the party here but K3's need more than just show up in the SAVE system. They need an EAD to qualify for a SSN. That usually takes quite a bit longer to obtain than 2 weeks.
