    Brush up harry potter, the unusual history, and develop some mean study habits.

    Don't be alarmed by your first B or C. The work here is on a different level than other colleges, so don't be afraid of getting grades that you're uncomfortable with. Don't overdo studying, try to find different RSO's to become a part of and let your extracurricular interests flourish alongside your intellectual growth.

    When the admissions say they are holistic; they are holistic. Don't get caught up with your test scores and having the highest GPA. Those might help a little, but once you are in the range of a 2200 and in the top 10-15% of your class, you don't have much to worry about in that respect. Focus on your essays. Give yourself time and make sure to explore the school. Talk to admissions officers and have a strong interview. Your Uncommon essay will make the difference of how the admissions office perceives your character. It's hard. But never impossible.

    If you're looking for a college where you can maintain a 4.0 gpa and not have too work to hard for, then you're looking in the wrong place. This school is very challenging, but the pay off is definitely worth it. And the people you will meet are great.

    Make sure that they have your major, because they do not have as many departments, such as an engineering school, as large public universities may have. That being said, the programs and faculty seem amazing.
