    Attend campus, talk to current students, and learn to study smart! From what I've heard from my future peers, some of the more intensive classes can be less stressful if you take extra time to study before the lectures.

    this school is not for you if you need more attention academically. In a larger setting I feel like I will be distracted and will not really focus on my studies. If you are like me, i reccomend a smaller school for you, where the teachers actually have time for you and your counselors as well.

    I would definitely recommend visiting the school before you apply. There are a lot of events/days that are reserved and created just for prospective students. I would highly recommend that you attend these events to get a better idea of what Iowa has to offer.

    Make sure your test scores are high, for they are quite generous to those with high test scores. A difference of one point on the ACT kept me from being able to afford this school, so make sure you do your best and keep at least a 3.5 GPA. You can get in with a lower one, but the financial aid will not be as good.
