    Try and go see the campus. Get a high GPA and SAT score. If the SAT is not for you, then take the ACT, which was what I did.

    I highly recommend prospective students to work hard in getting a high GPA and SAT, so that Rutgers actually offers you some money. Also take advantage of the AP courses and exams, because they can save you from taking electives, and you can sometimes skip courses LIKE EXPOSITORY WRITING. PASS AP ENGLISH LANG OR LIT. AP courses are nothing compared to college classes. Just do it. Attend many events, get to know the people around you and in your major, and have fun. But not too much fun, because I personally study like 20+ hours a week for my classes. You will learn in college that it is not as easy as you think it is. It's only easy if you are a studious student.

    Get involved in anything and everything that interests you, you won't regret it. Use ratemyprofessor for every class. Get the smallest dining plan and don't be stingy you can always add more, but you can't get your money back!

    If you're considering any other colleges, don't look any further. Rutgers has all you need and then some by tenfold, for a reasonable pricetag. While the sheer size of Rutgers is often the deciding factor in why students say no to Rutgers, do not be intimidated. As you get familiarized with the bus system and different campuses, join clubs and make friends, you'll notice you will find familiar faces nearly everywhere you go. Many of my friends regret going to small colleges because the clique aspect is still alive and well in many smaller schools. Well, not here. Everyone is so friendly and willing to adopt you into their friend group. Striking up a conversation with nearly anyone is bound to have favorable results, and with all the clubs and organizations you can join, NOT making friends is virtually impossible. Shy people rejoice! Tips? Challenge yourself academically, be open minded when meeting new people, be kind, and balance work and play in a healthy manner!
