    For future student, make sure that you have good time management and that you step out of your comfort zone. There are many resources and opportunities available, but you need the mindset to pursue those resources. Make many good friends and enjoy college.

    When you are ranking, keep in mind that different colleges have different GE requirements, so rank wisely. UCSD has a website that included the grade distribution for each professor from previous years so use this site when you are choosing classes. Finally, take as many AP's are you can because they will boost your standing which will give you priority when chooses classes.
