  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    My biggest mistake was waiting until the last minute and not applying for many schools. My advice to any one would be to start early in order to give yourself enough time to choose the school that best fits you and in order to give the school enough time to process your application. I did not believe any one when they told me that it was a long hard process and now i most definatly do. Therefore taking your time and taking all of the steps necessary to succeed would be the advice I would give myself and any one else who needed further advice on the process of getting into college.
