    Definitely visit! While a school may look really good for you on paper, the campus can have a totally different vibe.

    Research!!! Just because it looks good on paper does not mean it is a good fit for you. Look at the Core requirements and see if you want to waste two years of your time taking classes that you may or may not be interested in, how hard/easy/expensive studying abroad is, what kind of career advancement opportunities they have, what kind of classes they have, etc. Everyone says this, but look on their website and get an understanding of what kind of life you're going to have if you come here.

    During the application process, be yourself. Remember that grades and test scores aren't everything - before applying make sure you are active in many extracurricular activities and have passions outside of academic achievements.

    There is, without a doubt, a specific type of student the University if looking for. It's looking for students who think outside the box, for students who don't see a glass half empty or half full, but rather completely filled (half water and half gases). Most applying to this University will have stellar scores and GPAs, so make sure to stand out in the essays. Be daring. Be bold. Dissolve your personhood into liquid ink, and write yourself down in those limited 500 words. Also make sure that you express that you are more than an academic powerhouse--show the University that you're a person with thoughts, emotions, and relationships. Show them that the breadth of your being goes beyond the mere bounds of academia and is grounded in humanity and humility above all else.

    Choose wisely for the uncommon essay question and be very much yourself.
