  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    As an applicant, I took as many AP classes as I took. Also, during the interview, literally be yourself and be confident. After all, they are examining every part of you as a potential student.

    Don't be scared away by the Work Forest reputation or the reputation that Greek life dominates all. It is a top 30 university, so if you don't want to work hard, Wake is definitely the wrong place, but the work is not so much that you will never see the outside of the library walls or never have time to make friends. Greek life is prominent, but not so much that you will feel left out of anything if you don't participate.

    Wake has a lot to offer, and it is easy to get distracted with extracurricular activities and all of the things going on on campus sometimes. Time management is very important here like with most colleges. Just keep an open mind, try new things in your first couple of years, and narrow down what you are passionate about and what you value. It may change quite drastically along the way, but you don't declare your major until sophomore year anyway, so don't worry too much about not knowing what you want to do. Just make sure what you spend your time on reflects what you value most.
