    If you are the typical 3.8+GPA student who has great extracurricular activities then you are in. This University doesn't look for Stanford test scores but they want to see people who are high achievers that want to succeed.

    If you call or email the Admissions office you can talk to the representative from the area where you live and they can give you tips on getting in. There are also a lot of events for prospective students and if it is possible you should definitely visit the campus.

    The school, like the city is very hilly so be able to handle walking up-hill and downhill. Always take advantage of available resources if you ever need help or advice or tutoring there are many resources available for your needs. Like cooler weather because San Francisco is in the sixties year-round just about. Also, you do not have to be religious or be catholic like the school is. Religion is faintly present in classrooms and in the school in my opinion. There's a big school church, but besides that it feels like a normal school, so don't let the religious school label obstruct you from attending.

    Because USF is located in one of the most busiest and diverse cities, it may be hard to focus on academics when there are so many things you want to do in the city. Like for any other school, time management is crucial for success. Also, just because there are less students, doesn't mean it will be easier to connect with professors and other students if you don't put yourself out there. The students and staff are super friendly, so don't be afraid to talk to them; especially at office hours. Just be safe and make sure you don't sign up for 8am classes (unless you are for sure a morning person).

    When applying to the university be sure to look into a living learning community as this will be a chance to dive deeper into San Francisco and discover the people who live here and what types of roles you can take on within the progressive society of San Francisco as you come into the city for your first year of university. Be sure to apply for grants and scholarships and take advantage of the full listing of outside scholarships obtained by USF students in the past that the University of San Francisco has on their financial aid web page. Remember to choose your school based on your interests and to check out opportunities off campus in the city in addition to those offered on campus.
