Incoming students should be aware that academics come first. This could be very hard once they leave their parents/ guardians house to come live an independent life. It is a hard transition for many students, but there are faculty members and students that they can talk with if there are any difficulties. Adjusting to the dorm life and independent studying can be difficult too, but with right amount of effort and learning experience, it should be overall fine.» Read More
A study tip that I would recommend to students is to really know the information. Do not just memorize formulas and definitions-really learn and be able to apply them. Many of your classes are built on each other so just passing by in one class could really hurt you when it's actually a foundation for another few classes. Depending on your personality, it may also help to find friends that take the same classes as you. I tend to do better in classes that I take with my friends because not only can I study with them and have another reference to go to if I don't understand something, but it really motivates me to do well because when we're comparing grades after exams and such it's almost like a contest to see who can get a better grade. Also, it's okay to get a tutor for classes that you struggle with. I usually do well with school and was embarrassed to get a tutor at first, but once I got one for a class that I really didn't understand it made a huge difference and I am so glad that I did. Something important that I've learned through experience that I would tell to students is to get to know your professors. It may seem kind of awkward, but it makes a huge difference. I go to a large university and a lot of my classes are large lecture halls, so it takes effort to communicate with professors. Visiting your professor during their office hours and not being afraid to email them will make you more comfortable with them and when they see you making an effort they will be more willing to help you. Sitting in the first few rows and participating in class is another tip that I would give. ItÃ¢Â?Â?s much easier to pay attention in class and retain information when youÃ¢Â?Â?re actively engaged and a lot of the information is given during lectures that you may not be able to find in your books. Going to class is crucial to your learning. Also, keep an open mind because there are so many different options in the business school and if you are set on just one major or just one career you may miss out on greater opportunities.» Read More
