I wish that I would of known how serious the workload and the courses are at the university. I knew that it was a top school, but I do not feel that I was prepared or well equipped to handle the courses that I took the first semester. They delve straight into subjects you have never taken before and that you have no prior knowledge in and they don not slow down. I wish that I would have been prepared to be shocked and amazed and terrified at the level this school is at.
I think it would have been nice to know about the partying scene prior to coming to school in that it was a lot more intense than I had imagined it to be. However, both drinkers and non-drinkers are at ease at parties and if you are a non-drinker, you will never be pressured to drink by your peers, which is another wonderful thing about Rice students.
