    Develop relationships with your professors! They want to help you. Talk to your advisor(s), both educational and career, and don't be afraid to ask for help from them if you're stressed or confused.

    Really look into research if you plan on attending this university. It is a very big research based university and it allows for students to work with faculty in something that they are interested in. I don't necessarily do research, but I am working in a big research based lab through the medical school at the University of Minnesota and I'm just about to finish up my sophomore year as an undergraduate so there are plenty of opportunities.

    Every credit after 13 credits is free, however I would not recommend taking more than 15 or 16, especially if you are taking Upper Division classes! For transfer students, you do not need to do more than 13 credits a semester to graduate on time. Be aware that some classes are only offered during Spring or Fall semesters, and some are only offered every other year (i.e. odd years or even years) so plan ahead of time.

    Research very carefully before committing to the U of M. It is a very expensive school when the cost of board, books, and meals are added to the already absurd tuition, and it is only worth your time if you are studying certain subjects. They excel in some subjects but have absolutely abysmal offerings for others. Your tuition money is funding sports first, followed by scientific research (which includes things like cutting open a cow's digestive tract and fiddling with one of the stomachs while the cow is both alive and awake, though locally anesthetized). If you have moral objections to football or animal experimentation, well...

    When scheduling classes, make sure you visit them before the first day because if you don't make it to one of your classes on the first day, your spot in the class might be given up to someone who is on the waitlist for that class. Also, make sure you know whether your class is on the east bank or west bank.
