    Do not come here without a set plan on how you are going to pay for it. Keep an open mind about everything because there will be some downs, but how you get up is what matters. Also, I highly recommend you do not take a math class at Howard. Look up your major's plan of study and take the required math at your local junior college.

    Visit! Talk to prospective professors or Dean's at the school your are interested in. Try to stay one night on campus with a student friend.

    Make sure all your professors know your name and are familiar with you face. If they have somewhat of a personal relationship with you, they are more inclined to help you when you need it.

    SATS!! GOOD SCORES=GOOD MONEY The more you come out of pocket on the less you can enjoy on campus. Less events you can pay for like homecoming, broccoli fest, Bison Ball, Bison run etc. Unless you have money :)
