    make sure that you start with a good amount of units (from ap classes, transfer, etc.) so that your enrollment window isn't on the last day(s).

    tips for prospective students/ things that i wish i did differently earlier on: 1. uci is a competitive school. don't ever compare yourself or your academics to anyone else's grades or classes. focus on yourself and you will be successful. 2. make friends and go out as much as you can during your first two years of college. the last two years will be just as fun, but you will get busy with planning for life after college and harder classes! 3. say yes to the opportunities that you are given. 4. do not plan to join 5 clubs during your first year. focus on allocating enough time to one or two clubs so that you can get the most out of it. 5. buy a planner- for hanging out with friends, upcoming tests, etc. so you do not forget about all the busy things you have going on! 6. look for opportunities outside of college- volunteer at a hospital or try getting a part time job. it will help when applying for things in the future! 7. study hard! make also make sure you have a balance between school and social life.

    Tour the campus before you decide to attend or not attend UCI. The campus has a unique feel, so make sure you can see yourself here before you choose to come here! When I first toured the campus, I felt like I belonged here, and that feeling has only grown the more time I spend on campus.

    (1) Know about the major you want to major in UCI (2) Use the plan of study wisely according to your major (it is under the UCI catalogue) (3) Know that most of your time would be studying, doing homework and midterms hits you pretty fast due to it is quarter system (4) you might have 2 midterms depending on your classes (5) Know that social life is pretty dead on weekends so you either can catch up on homework, create your own party, know people/have connections to parties, or just do whatever you do on weekends: sleep, video games... (6) Yes, there is a lot of ASIANS at UCI, but trust me when I say it is not of import to worrying about fitting in because in the end you do you and you should be the one to make the most of your college life. (7) Be prepare to get bored of dorm food (8) You walk a lot/bike a lot
