I WOULD GIVE MYSELF THE ADVICE THAT COLLEGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW AND EXCEL IN LIFE. IT'S A STEPPING STONE TO YOUR FUTURE AND SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. IN THIS MODERN DAY A COLLEGE EDUCATION IS ESSENTIAL TO SURVIVE. CEASE EACH AND EVERY OPPORTUNITY FOR LEARNING, YOU SHOULD LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY! WORK HARD, STUDY HARD, AND YOU WILL SUCCEED.
I would suggest that you go to the campus's that you are considering and really get a look at what they look like and a feel for how the college runs on a normal basis. I would make sure that the college really fits your personality because when you really like your school, you tend to learn better in that enviornment.
Make sure the admissions office knows what you want. Keep in touch with them, call them weekly to make sure they have all of your correct information.
I would have had more fun in high school and not stressed so much about my grades.
