    Go talk to your professors during their office hours! Do you automatically join a clique the first year because everyone else is doing so. Find other people to talk to that are not freshman. Find a safe space on campus to vent about your problems. Please go to a school psychologist if you need someone to talk to about your problems, they can help you deal with anxiety about leaving home.

    In order to get accepted at Oberlin, you have to be top notch, or show them how much you want to be top notch. You also have to show them that you are well rounded, and passionate about your choice of school. The easiest way to do this is to make multiple visits to the college, and talk with the admissions people. Also, don't worry too much about the cash: Oberlin's need based grants are very well implemented so that you'll never be paying something outside of your price range.
