What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I would have known that your degree from undergrad doesn't have to be similar to your graduate degree.


How disorganized this school is


I wish I had known to continually check on the progression of my classes with my adviser, as it relates to graduating. Never wait until the last minute, only to find out more classes (and money) are needed than what was anticipated. Also, be sure to get ALL things in writing from staff. Never simply accept the word of an employee, only to have that employee deny his/her words later.


I wish I had known about the Federal Work Study/Student Employment Program.

I probably wish I would have known how disorganized things are.
