    This school is notorious for being a party school, but that doesn't mean that it is easy to get in or that the academics are a breeze. You need to find a balance between being a college student socially and academically. Being a student at UW-Madison means studying hard Monday through Friday and partying hard on the weekends, if partying if what you're into of course.

    If you aren't sure whether or not you want to be on a big campus, this may not be the school for you. Plenty of people have transferred at semester due to their dislike for the big campus, however many have transferred to Madison in search of a bigger campus than the one they were originally at.

    Visit the campus and see if it is right for you! The transportation may seem a bit challenging at first, but all students are eligible to receive a bus pass. That definitely comes in handy and the bus system is easy to figure out. Try not to overload your schedule the first semester because chances are that these courses are harder than your average high school courses. Living on your own and feeding yourself may also present a challenge but it's great! You will definitely grow and learn a lot.

    Take at least one course that you find challenging or out of your comfort zone because the professors are great and you won't regret it.
