    -Don't overlook Memphis! I think the school is overlooked because of the city, but I highly recommend considering Memphis. You're not paying as much as you would for many out-of-state colleges, and you're still getting a good education. I have never really felt unsafe on campus, but some of the area surrounding the school is a bit fishy. Just don't go out at night and use your basic instincts and you should be fine. -Apply for tons of scholarships! That sounds like common sense, but the U of M has several great scholarship programs available. I applied for a scholarship on the whim for Memphis, and it ended up being one of the main reasons I selected the U of M. Definitely apply for as many as you can, because you never know what you will receive.

    As I've heard, it's definitely not a push-over, easy A school. So don't expect to just pay for an A.

    Have a car! On the weekends, everyone is pretty much off campus, either at home or in the city. Have a car to venture out and see the rest of Memphis.

    Visit early, and visit often. Also talk to anyone and everyone, you would be surprised how many friends you can make just by saying hello! Don't be afraid to bug your adviser in email, especially if you have yet to see the college...let them know that you are nervous and need help and they will help you!

    Apply early and turn in your FAFSA as soon as possible to acquire the most financial aid. While tuition here is not expensive, it is much easier to attend this campus for almost nothing if you qualify for grants and scholarships. You should look into living on-campus for at least one semester to adjust to the independence of college life.
