    The entrance essay can count for a lot if you are not sure that your GPA is high enough for automatic acceptance. Don't hesitate to visit and ask lots of questions, the people and staff at Texas State are more than willing to answer them. Don't be afraid to apply, the school is constantly working with students in order to admit them.

    Be ready to meet a lot of people. Make sure not to eat too much junk food when dining on campus. Be prepared to climb a lot stairs and hills, so wear comfortable shoes. Talk to your professors. The library is very resourceful so use it as much as you can. Join clubs and organizations.

    Make sure to take advantage of Bobcat Days to visit and take a look at what dorms the campus has to offer. I know so many of my dorm mates that had no idea what our dorm was going to be like before moving in and many still are not comfortable in it. When you do get settled in, make sure to get to know your RA's! I always went to mine when something important happened.
