    Do your best in high school, and don't blow off senior year! Take a lot of AP and honors classes to show that you are capable of performing well at the college level, and make sure to take the tests to get college credit. I am technically a sophomore even though it is my first year since I had so many AP credits, and this is a huge benefit in the long run since you will always be among the first to pick your classes! Also, never count yourself out and not apply just cause of GPA and ACT scores, take as many leadership roles as possible in clubs and activities and do service hours, in addition to spending a lot of time on essays. This will greatly increase your chances of admission!

    Get to know your professors and not just the Teaching Assistants (it will help you to stand out). Learn and do things outside your comfort zone. It's easy to fall into routines and ruts. Stay true to yourself and do the things that make you happy. You will find like-minded individuals in a school of this size.
