    Do well in High School. UMBC is known for its hard classes, but the classes are so much more interesting especially classes specific to your major. The workload is dependent on what kind of classes you are taking but I didn't find the work any more difficult than what I had In High School.

    Do not slack around your freshman year. When you are scheduling for classes be quick about it and don't procrastinate. Join Clubs to get involved with school activities and meet to people. Also have fun but not to much fun.

    Always be in touch with the college's undergraduate admission counselor whether by email or phone. If required, meet them in person too so that you are totally familiar with the process of admission.

    I would recommend that you be serious in choosing UMBC because it is not a school to go for easy A's. It's not all strict academics though, make sure you get involved in the community as there is not really a college town area, so most events take place on campus. You are close too the city and the transit buses are free to go to the mall. The best tip I can say is to try new things (and there are many clubs that will help you with that), make some new friends, and take advantage of everything you have available to you!
