    Dont go into college thinking this is going to be a breeze, because you have so much free time now that you may take advantage of that. I knew some people who had that freedom and would just stop going to class, so you really need to take responsibiltiy. You have to also realize that you dont have teachers to write you up when youre late or just dont show up. Youre education is completly in your hands now, so dont mess it up. read full review
