    I highly recommend to visit the campus because the architecture and landscape is beautiful. There are many helpful professors and college staffs. Do not be ashamed to ask for help! The Center for Academic Excellence provides tutors that I utilize frequently.

    Don' t let the reputation of Oakland or an all women's college keep you from applying to their nursing program! The education you receive at Mills is known throughout the country, and the academic rigor you experience remains virtually unmatched.

    Don't be afraid to fight for your financial aid award! If the award is not sufficient for your family's needs (like it was in my case), then you need to appeal, explain any situation you or your family has. The financial aid office will work with you to give you the best financial aid award possible!

    I highly recommend visiting campus and if you are accepted, definitely attend the one-night program where you can stay for Mills at one night with a student at Mills who will be your host.

    It is important to visit the campus before making a decision to attend Mills, as it is a small liberal arts college and very unique, and therefor not suited for everyone. Getting a few good letters of recommendation really helps, as does having quality essays as those can sometimes be more important than test scores or GPAs. Be open to the idea of an all women's college, and have an idea of what you want to major in so you can make sure the school offers it.
