    Expect to study for hours only to make a mediocre grade on your exam. Expect material to be harder than it needs to be. Don't expect a curve on anything. PROFESSORS WILL EFFECT YOUR GPA. Getting the right professor means everything. It means keeping your scholarship. Oh and yeah, professors DO play favorites all day.

    Before coming to Mercer, plan ahead for the rigor and the demand from professors. However, do not be too afraid of professors because they are all willing to help each student in any way that they can once you reach out to them. Be prepared for lots of discussion and sometimes one-on-one conversations.
