    don't be too focused on what you want to study coming in here. you're going to learn a ton, but it's good to keep an open mind. take a music class. learn about psychology. don't get too pigeon-holed with engineering or whatever you may already know you like. bring warm clothes. expect weather below zero regularly (with wind chill) during the winter.

    Be prepared for a lot of work and very difficult exams. Hard work is important, but it wouldn't get you everywhere. Studying is super important to do well on your exams. Professors and lectures are only sometimes helpful so be prepared to need to teach yourself a lot if you are bad at understanding the professors.

    The University of Rochester is one of the nation's leading higher education. With a faculty to student ratio of 9:1, students are assured that they will receive the attention necessary for them to succeed throughout their years here at the U of R. Class size are typically 10-25 students, but in the sciences and math, it tend to be pretty large. But wait, don't be scared, workshops or professor/teacher assistant office hours are offered for to students sitting in these classes. In writing classes, there are also writing fellows and consultants at your service. If interested, I would advice a prospective student to do intensive research about the university. Meliora.

    If you want to be challenged, be in a college environment where there is an opportunity for the professor to know your name due to small class sizes as well as having many research opportunities, the UofR is for you.
